Independence Day and an FO

 HAPPY 4th  
To all who are celebrating today

As a person who is proud to celebrate both Canada Day and Independence Day I thought it only right that I acknowledge both holidays in the same way - with an F.O. - Finished Object for any non-knitters.

My completed project this time is appropriate for the holiday.  I started my Stars & Stripes socks on February 22nd on the plane to Savannah, Georgia and I finished them last night and blocked them, ready to tuck into the sock drawer on the 4th of July.  I'd wear them today but it's much too warm.


Pattern:  Generic - Top Down, 60 stitches, 1x1 ribbing, stocking stitch legs and feet, short row heel

Size:  Women's medium

Yarn:  The Stars & Stripes yarn is from knitpurlgurl on Etsy, purchased a couple of years ago. The solid blue yarn is Cascade Heritage and the red is unknown, something from my stash.

  Needles: US 0/2.0 mm

Notes:   Those who know me know that I like to make my socks match.  You'll notice that the stripes do match.  I purposely switched the colors on the heels and toes.  I meant to do it!!

This is pair #3 for the year.  I'm not making socks as often as I did last year but I am finishing up some projects that have been around for a while.  Last night I restarted a project that was begun almost exactly three years ago.  More to come soon about that project.
