May Socks!

These socks just flew off the needles! I'm so pleased with how these turned out! and now my May socks are done too. I really like how stretchy the pattern is too--it makes me worry less about a good fit! Here are the details:

Pattern: Waving Lace Socks from Favorite Socks
Yarn: Louet Gems, color Terra Cotta, 2 skeins, purchased at Knit-wit in Olathe KS
Needles: Knitpicks Harmony DPN size 2.5mm
Modifications: I did the ribbing option for the cuff.

This was a new yarn for me! I loved the color, but was a little concerned that the yarn might be too thin or scratchy, but I was completely wrong. I love how it knit up and it produced a thin sock (but not too thin) and feels very soft! I was pleasantly surprised! Now I'm ready to start some socks for me using my new STR! Sunday we (DH, Knox and I) leave for KS to visit the families and see my SIL graduate college (Woohoo!) So posts will be a little more sporadic, but I will try to keep in touch!

Congrats on finishing the May socks early, and give my congrats to your SIL on her college graduation. Have a safe trip, and enjoy your time with your family. Let us know how the sock lessons go with your mom, too.
