hooray!  finished object!!

i’ve been trying to finish off gift knitting that has been in the works for a while.  these are for my niece…but butter kinda wants them too.  i think the afterthought heels were a success…i may have to start knitting endless tubes so that i can get through my sock knitting stash.

Gift Socks!

gift socks
pattern: my own (my ravelry link)
in knitpicks felici (color way unknown)
finished: october 29, 2014
needles: US #0 knitpicks nickel plated circs
notes: jmco, tube socks, afterthought heel

random thought:  i want to avoid 100% merino socks.  they just don’t cut it.  a good number of mine eventually fell apart.  i may just  knit in some reinforcement on the heels and toes (because i have so much super wash merino)….OR…use wool/nylon blends for the toes and heels!





up next!

i love the idea of blogging again. i was finishing up the first sock of this pair and couldn’t remember how to do an invisible bo…so i looked up my tutorial! couldn’t help myself and practically read the entire blog. (sigh).

also my friend becky, aka “momma”, started a blog of her own: endurance epicurean.

see you again soon?
