Socks reborn

I'm finally getting back to those socks I started last year. Never do one sock of many colours and put them down and think to yourself you will do the matching one later....Don't do it. It requires to much thought to remember what size and hopefully your tension is even. Mine worked out okay, but not without a few minor pull back of stitches...hate that.

So here are finally, 3 pairs done. One pair, the bright green/orange combination went to one of my sweet little ladies that I was caring for. I paid her a visit on Monday and wanted to make sure she got these. She told me once that her feet get cold in bed, so I thought these would help. One good thing to note, this yarn is machine washable and the pattern develops itself as it's built into the yarn. Check you local yarn shop or some craft places might carry it. One ball will do a pair with a bit left over depending on whether you make them a bit longer or not and the various colours of yarn and the different companies will give you lots of choices of patterns. Each one is so much fun to work with as you can watch the patterns developing without having to change the yarn throughout.
