STR Socks!


Just a simple sock but really neat... The cuffs, heels & toes are worked in garter stitch and the rest in St. Stitch. I made them for a very sweet lady for a little gift to show how much I appreciate her friendship and gifts. I've had lots of fun making these and not much pooling for the first time I think.....lol I hope she enjoys them and being introduced to STR yarn It was so hard to part with them too I liked the way they came out alot! (I'm not usually a bright color type either, so very unusal for me)
Used US size 1 needles 2.25mm and can't remember for sure but I think it's Xmas rock colorway.
I can't say the size because then she might know there for her and she hasn't recieved them just yet, they in the mail on they way to her now. I can't wait until she gets them so exciting! I sure hope they fit too makes me nervous not seeing the foot myself or doing proper measurements. (yes I know she blog stalks me)
A few more days she should have them.....YEAH!
