Socks!

My friend gave me this lovely yarn for Christmas a couple years ago. I've started socks with this before back when I was first learning...then tore it out. A few days ago I decided to knock out a pair of socks for Charlotte. It's going to be COLD when we get to Virginia, and she's going to need them. I'll be starting a pair for Peter soon.

Again, I made these up as I went along, using a generic toe up method, on double points, and then added a gull wing stitch on the side, ending with ten rows of ribbing. Absolutely seamless!

Beautiful! After I figure out mittens, I'll try socks.
