I've got new socks!
My Sockapalooza package came on Friday! Many thanks to Sally (sans blog) for her hard work and thoughtfulness.
Now, I've made many pairs of socks in the past year, but this is the first pair of handmade socks I've ever worn that weren't made by me. I feel so privileged to be the recipient of the product of another knitter's talent. Thanks again, Sally!
(BTW, the Sockapalooza socks I made arrived safely at their destination. The Knitted Bookworm tells me I fretted needlessly over the color difference.)
There is another pair of new socks in the house.
Pattern: Undulating Rib by Ann Budd, from the Interweave book Favorite Socks
Needles: size 0 (2.00 mm) DPNs
Modifications: I only used the undulating rib pattern for the cuffs of the socks. The I continued the K3, p1, k1, p1 ribbing down the rest of the sock. This idea was one I shamelessly ripped off from the Yarn Harlot.
Since the Trekking socks were my only WIP, I have of course cast on for something new. Here's a sneak preview.
