Socks FX

Yarn: Patons Kroy Socks FX
75% washable wool/ 25% nylon
166 yds/50 gr. - 2 balls almost all used
Clay Colors

Needles: dpns; size 3 for cuff and size 2 for foot
60 stitches

I bought these two balls intending to mail to Kay while she was in South GA but then decided she probably wouldn't want to worry with sock knitting, so I quickly went to plan B and started a pair of socks for a nephew.

This yarn is a bit heavier than usual sock yarn, but I think the socks will be warm and hard-wearing. I really enjoyed how the colors striped. The yarn is marled so the transitions are gradual. Should work well with a mostly blue jean wardrobe, I think.

What a lucky nephew! Those socks are perfect!

I keep thinking I need to get another pair of socks on the needles, but, you know me and socks. I haven't made a pair for 2010 yet. Hmm, wonder if I ever made a 2009 pair? I'll have to go look through the blog posts.
Going tomorrow (I hope) to find a shuttle. Already have some gorgeous pink thread. :o)
