Some Pretty New Socks or More Correctly Some New Pretty Socks!
I knit these socks over the past two weeks. I used size 2 needles for the cuffs and leg, and size 1's for the foot. The yarn is On-line Supersocke 100 Harlekin in color 1140 purchased from Webs. I cast on 66 stitches and just knit a 1x1 rib cuff; the rest is stockinette. I used Charlene Schurch's Sensational Knitted Socks as a reference, but didn't really follow a pattern.
I retired from over 20 years of teaching middle school in June 2015, and I am loving the relatively stress-free life. I keep busy with water aerobics, bird-watching, knitting, reading, and of course, continuing as bookkeeper for my husband's business. I'm active in a wonderful United Church of Christ (UCC) church, I've been married to the same great person since 1977, and I have 2 adult sons.
