Socks for me

These socks are Bearfoot Mountain Colors. The color is called Huckleberry. The yarn is 60% superwash wool, 25% mohair and 15% nylon. Each skein is 4 oz., about 350 yds.

It is very soft cuddly yarn and the socks are one of the warmest I've got.

These were done on #0 Addis toe up (9 spi). Turkish Cast on (7 wraps). Then Queen Kahuna style up. 36 sts. on each circular needle. Instep rib: k2, p2, *k4, p2* repeat between asterisks, end with k2.

These are Schaefer "Anne" yarn that I picked up at Stitches Midwest. The yarn is 60% merino wool superwash, 25% mohair, 15% nylon. The skeins are 4 oz., about 560 yards. Hmmm...not sure of the color. It's dark blue and dark green.

These were also done on #0 Addi Turbo. 10-11 spi. 39 sts on each circular needle. Did Aloha cast on from Queen Kahuna. I did little holes (just yo's) every other knit panel on the ribbing.

These are also nice cuddy, soft, warm socks.
