2011 Christmas Present for Mom
I tried very hard to get my mom's socks done in time for Christmas but I didn't quite make it. So, I wrapped up the finished sock plus the half-finished sock with the needles still in it and promised to finish the second sock before Christmas 2012. Feb. 2012 is pretty good, I think, and since she lives in Iowa, she'll still get plenty of wear out of these this winter.
Pattern: Serpentine Socks from Socks from the Toe Up by Wendy Johnson
Yarn: Plymouth Worsted Merino Superwash Kettle Dyed, color 1007
Notes: The pattern called for sport weight yarn but I found that it knit up quite well in this worsted weight yarn. Normally, I use fingering weight yarn for socks but I knew I would not have enough time to finish a pair of socks at that gauge. They certainly knit up quickly!
