How irresistable is he? My brother, Mikey, was admiring these socks again while I was finishing them during his recent visit from Pennsylvania. Mike & I saw each other in Florida in September where we met up with our other brothers for a wake... our dad passed away on September 2nd. I miss him every day. These socks were the project I took with me on that trip. I needed something portable and mindless for the plane and while I was there. So Mike saw these socks on my needles in Florida when they were just a few inches big. I didn't get very far with them on the trip because I just couldn't stay focused. When he admired them again as I completed them I had him try them on and they fit perfectly and he was so nice with his compliments and seemed to REALLY like them. So of course I had to give them to him. Doesn't he look adorable?
I knit my standard plain sock on size 2 turbo addis with Paca-Peds alpaca blend superwash in color #604, fireside. This beautiful yarn was a gift from my knitting buddy, Claudia. You can find her at A New Yarn in Seattle. If you haven't been there and you're in the area go check it out.... you never know what treasures and fab deals you might find there.
