We interupt Thursday Kitties for a special news bulletin. The socks are DONE!
These socks have been the bane of my existence for some time now, but they are finally finished AND he is wearing them.
For that I'm grateful.
Basic stats for these socks:
56 sts on size 2 needles
4" 2x2 rib
3/4" stst before heel
6.25" stst foot
started sock #1: 1/15/08
finished sock #2: 4/3/08
yarn: Skacel Trampoline Stretch color 238
70% wool, 23% nylon, 7% poly elite
Yarn was ok, but depending on how it was spun, you could see the elastic (poly elite?) thru it. Since its a variegated color, when it shows thru its not a big deal. I think it would be worse with a solid color.
Don't think I would buy it again, too many other sock yarns out there to use and try.
Tomorrow we will resume your regularly scheduled programming.
We were pre-empted for socks?!!? There better be tuna in these bags to make up for it.
