John's Birthday Socks Finished
Yesterday between bouts of dealing with the nasty weather, I finished John's birthday socks.
The cuffs are seven inches long from top to heel. Three skeins of Happy Feet were needed. One skein per sock took me to the start of each toe for John's size 11 foot knitting 70 stitches around.
Pattern: 70 stitch basic socks. The stitch pattern is from one of my stitch pattern books, Beautiful Knitting Patterns by Gisela Klopper. It's a simple 7 stitch knit purl pattern with a knit 5 purl 2 ribbing base.
Yarn: Happy Feet. 90% Superwash Merino, 10% Nylon.
Color: Dark blue.
Needles: Options 2.50mm circulars.
Gauge: 8 stitches/inch, 10 rows/inch in stockinette.
