My first FO of the year!
yarn lana grossa mega boots stretch, color 715 (bought at MDSW 2006 — yay for more fest yarn!)
pattern basic toe-up on 60 stitches, increased to 68 about 2 inches before the top
needles knit picks 2.75 mm / US # 2
What can I say about these socks? They’re really simple — toe-up, Judy’s magic cast-on, stockinette foot and leg, short row heel, a couple inches of 2×1 rib, and a decrease bind-off.
Even though they’re so simple, these socks are really special to me.
They meet several of my 2008 goals:
- Stash yarn – I bought this at MDSW 2006!
- They’re socks – I really want more hand knit socks this year.
- Finishing what I started. Being able to wear what I knit – priceless.
Up next is finishing up Gigi’s dress. The birthday party is in a few weeks and let me tell you, that innocent little dress has hours of finishing in it.
