Remember the scrummy Misti Alpaca Sock yarn I showed you yesterday?
Well this is what the knitting fairy turned it into. Cosy socks as a belated Christmas present for Mr G's mum. I've got over half the skein left so I might have to make myself something with the left over yarn.
For those of you who are into the technicalities of knitting here are the specs:
Needles: 2.5mm bamboo DPNs for the main body. 2.25mm britanny DPNs for the toes and heel to give a tighter fabric.
Toes and Heels made from Lang Jawoll Superwash Solid Sock yarn which is stocked by the ever friendly I knit. I really like this plain yarn, it's not as cuddly as the Alpaca but hopefully it will make for stronger heels and toes.
Worked toe up to 44 stitches (MIL is a UK size 3) and used the Yarmando Evil Sock Genius pattern for the heel.
