John's Cuffs and A Snow Picture
I'm trying to think of something interesting to write about these socks and coming up short.
I do like the way they're turning out. The stitch pattern is just busy enough not to be boring. And I enjoy knitting with the Happy Feet yarn. That all adds up to a nice, gentle, soothing project for someone I love.
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.
We had about ten inches of snow this week. Nothing unusual for Michigan in February.
