They're a pair!

Pattern: Yarn Harlot's sock formula from Knitting Rules
Yarn: Plymouth Sockotta (this color in fact!)
Color: 5612 Bold Stripe
Needle: Size 2 bamboo dpns

The only change I made was to use 60 stitches instead of 64, since the only thin parts of my body are below my knees!

This is 8 lovely, yummy, soft, fluffy ounces of light fawn fiber from an alpaca named Franchesca who resides at Bay Springs Farm in Cape May NJ. This is what DD's friend convinced her mom to buy me while they were on vacation at the beach... I think I'll make her some mittens from it. Now I just have to figure out how to clean it! It's super soft though... really, really soft, like a cloud!

I'm plugging away on the Lucy Bag... and before I go to bed, I'll have finished the Monthly Dishcloth KAL.. and I'm happy to say that my prediction of the picture pattern was right on :-)

My SIL comes in one week... If I'm going to do that möbius scarf for her I better figure out the cast on, cuz I have a feeling it will take every free minute of time to finish it in one week.

Happy Crafting

the socks look great--how high do they go up on your legs? You were talking knees and I thought, goodness!

Yay! Very cool. I'm jealous. I really want to make knee socks, but haven't ever gotten that far. One of these days :-D. Great job!

Oh, and you're hoping to finish a mobius in one week?!?! Wow, you're adventurous. If it helps, I had someone else asking me about the cast-on a week ago. I found this back a while ago:,2025,DIY_14142_4894528,00.html

I haven't done it yet, so I don't know how helpful it is in written word. It does sound a bit confusing. It's easier to understand when you see it on TV, but hopefully it'll help!
