DH's socks are finished!!! Woohoo!!! He is happily modeling them for me and they are a perfect fit! He wanted to wear them today, but I said that I had to take them for show and tell at knit night. Was that mean to do?
Pattern: Retro Rib Socks from Favorite Socks
Yarn: Knit Picks Risata (a cotton blend for those of us in warm weather states) I have been asked to report back if this yarn pills after washing and wearing and I will! Right now they have a nice squishy feel.
Needles: US 2 doing 2 at a time on magic loop (a new skill for me).
Mods: None really. I did 15 repeats of the pattern for the leg, 19 for the foot and 4 rounds of plain knit before starting the toe. And look how much yarn was left.
Talk about walking on the wild side. I'm very glad I only did 15 repeats on the leg instead of the 17 the pattern said....I would have had to order more yarn. In case you were wondering DH wears a mens 10-10.5. These are also my September socks for the Pair A Month Challenge. I was definitely cutting it to the wire!
Thanks for all your kind thoughts and prayers about my health. My tummy feels better today but I'm tired. I know the Lord will give me strength to do what I need to do. (Maybe He will provide a little time for a nap too!)
