Karen's Socks Done
I'm still working on Christmas socks for brother Dave and his partner Karen. Karen's are done.
I won't try to give an excuse why I'm still knitting Christmas socks in March. We'll just pretend it is OK.
Last year when I posted a picture of the cuff of these socks (see below), there were several people who wanted the pattern. It's not a pattern. It's a basic ribbed sock with an Alpine design running up each side. If you want to know more about it, it's explained in detail in a previous blog post here.
Here's a closeup picture of this beautiful yarn.
Pattern: Basic cuff down sock pattern on 64 stitches with Alpine motif down both sides.
Yarn: Cascade Heritage #9828.
Needles: Options #1, 2.5mm
Gauge: 8 stitches/inch, 10 rows/inch
