I started winding the yarn for this pair of socks back in March of 2011 and last night I kitchnered the toe on the second one and wove in all my ends and they are now on my feet.
This pair I also finished last night and are to be gifted to my mom for Christmas.
They are the No Purl Monkey socks done up in Knitpicks Stroll Tonal using a size 1.5 needle. I actually cracked the needle knitting these and unlike addis, the kintpicks needles don’t bend. I’m going to be calling customer service to see if I can get a replacement, but I don’t have high hopes of it holding up any better than the first one.
Right now, I’m swatching for a pair of plain stockinette socks for my dad, who even with his size 10 feet the socks will be smaller than the ones I make myself. I have a ton of appointments this week so I’m going to have to really buckle down if I have any hope of finishing these by Christmas.
