Socks Complete!

This weekend I finished up 2 pair of socks.

First up, the socks for my youngest son. He loves them!

These were made top down on size 2 DPNs (8 stitches per inch) on 52 stitches. I used a K2P2 ribbing, plain stockinette for the leg and foot, and Eye of Partidge for the heel flap. The yarn is Regia Jacquard #5173.

I also finished my Trekking XXL #135 socks. These took me a while, partly because of the pattern and partly because I had other projects to work on at the same time.

The stitch pattern is Melanie's Twist Stitch.

Like all my socks, these were done top down with an Eye of Partridge Heel Flap and kitchenered toes.

I've already cast on more socks. A pair for my 8-year-old son (he wants anklets) and another pair for me.

And here's a picture of my 9-month-old Pug, Pearl. She normally doesn't like to get her picture taken but she was interested in my socks tonght, so I was able to get a pic of her.
