Another pair of socks done

These are a beautiful  hand dyed Royal Platinum Alpaca yarn . I was not certain that I could finish a pair with only 1 3 oz skein. I made "shorty" socks as insurance.  The yarn is so soft I loved knitting these socks.
Luckily, I completed the pair AND had yarn to spare.

We spent our Family Day holiday visiting with DD#2 and her little family (DSIL and the 2 granddogs). Our dogs, Shiraz and Django, love Chloe and Pepper. Our dogs run to the door each time we say their (Chloe and Pepper)names. Shiraz and Django were thrilled to go for a car ride to visit them.

  1. Linda - another quilter who is a sock knitter - there seem to be more and more. Have you discovered knitting both socks at the same time on long circular needles? It is awesome!! when you get to the toe - you are done with both! Glad to share links etc if you haven't seen this method. Mary in MA

  2. I am such a terrible knitter - I should have yourself & Melissa teach me. I have only ever knot one sock, that was 12 years ago and it still has no mate!
