Warm feet

My husband David and sister Nicole were the recipients of handknit socks this year. I had already blogged about David's socks earlier, once I had finished my first short row heel, but here are the finished pair. I finished them about a week before Christmas, so plenty of time!

Pattern: I made these toe-up with the Figure-Eight Cast On and then followed Wendy's directions for short row heels. For the rest, I just did a manly 3x1 rib.
Yarn: Knit Picks Essential Tweed in Flint
Needles: size 1
Thoughts: The yarn is nice and soft, but the tweedy bits bothered me because they were so "loose". It looked better after a wash.

Nicole's socks were the first Christmas present I started back in August.

Pattern: Jaywalker by Grumperina
Yarn: Regia 4 Ply (I think -- I can't find the label)
Needles: size 1
Thoughts: Jaywalker is a great pattern. I had fun knitting it.
