Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the invincible future with Him. (Oswalt Chambers)

Socks and a Dove

Son John picked this yarn out for his birthday socks at Harmony Yarn Studio in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. It got shipped here to SW Michigan and will soon be heading back to Idaho as his 2008 birthday socks.

He's been a Washington Redskin fan ever since he was a young lad in SW Michigan. Last year I knit him Redskin red socks, and this year is another variation on the Redskin maroon and gold.

Pattern: Basic 64 stitch sock with k7p1 wide ribbing on cuff and instep

Yarn: Cascade Sassy Stripes, 75% wool, 25% nylon

Color: 718

Needles: Options #1, 2.5mm

Gauge: 8 stitches/inch, 10 rows/inch

Mourning Dove hunkers down to stay warm after a nutritious meal at the feeders.
