Just a pair of Socks
Nothing earth shattering to report. It's just a pair of socks I knitted. Yarn was unraveled from a previous failed socks. I used Artyarn Ultramerino 4, in color 154. I have to say I really love this colorway. I used needles #2, probably should've used #1. Oh, well.
When I cast it on, I wanted a mindless knitting, so I just CO 60 sts and mostly followed directions in the socks book Sensational Knitted Socks for 54 or 62 sts of working from ankles to toes. The stitch I picked was Snowdrop Eyelets from the stitch library book Super Stitches Knitting.
Yup, it was mindless of taking a stitch from a stitch book and plug it into the formula of another book. Easy peasy.
I do love knitting socks. I don't even mind it as much knitting the second socks the way I always feel like second sleeve is such a chore. Now I'm a happy owner of a new pair of happy socks.
