more socks

This is a picture of the socks that I have on the needles. This is the first sock but it is almost done. I used the 56 st 56 row pattern which is on my side bar for your pleasure. I however did 36 rows of k1 p1 ribbing for the cuff and used the pattern for the heel, turning the heel, gussett and toe--40 rows of st st for the foot--fits a small foot. #2 double pointed needles and sock wt. (fingering) yarn. I cast on to #4 needles. I decided I wanted a shorter cuff for a change. I think I am going to try a patterned stitch on my next pair--maybe a cable or something. I am finally starting to feel pretty confident knitting socks. It will be a year in Nov. since I started. This is my 12th pair.

Did you have a nice visit with Toni today? I missed coming out! Would have been a good pool day, too! Going to be 90 the next couple of days. Who woulda thought?

I hope to get out there next week. I have a massage Tues. We have to mow sometime. Maybe we can skip that a week. I dunno....Love ya :)
