Pink Socks and More

Poodle Skirt Socks
Pattern - top down stockinette with Eye of Partridge heel flap and kitchenered toes
Yarn - Scarlet Fleece, It's Tubular X 2 in Poodle Skirt bought from The Loopy Ewe
Needles & Gauge - Size 2 DPNs, 8 st/in

This yarn was a pleasure to work with. No knots or splitty-ness. I love the fact that it did not pool at the gusset.

I've already started another pair.

Note: This is an old pic. I am now past the heel of the first sock and rapidly approaching the toe.
Yarn - Socks That Rock mediumweight in Jailhouse Rock
Pattern - Stansfield 14 from More Sensational Knitted Socks

When I was trying to decide what pattern to use for this yarn, I couldn't decided between 2 in the MSKS book, so I had my son decide. It wasn't until after I started knitting the pattern that I realized that I made it once before for these socks.
