Sox knit with the yarn we picked up in Mexico,
during our Quilt Shop Hop last month.
These were a pretty darn fast knit, considering:
a.] they were knit on Size #2 needles
as compared to the quite a bit smaller Size #0 that I have been using recently;
b.] combined these two pair used 534 yards ! ! ! ! !
That's a lotta yards
~ .3 of a mile
These were knit
on one 40" circular needle
using a Gusset Heel
and a Ribbed Leg/Cuff
Debbie's with a very t-a-l-l cuff
During the same period Hubby's Hell Fire, Once Again
sox were finished and bound off !
Again, knit toe up,
this time with Afterthought Heels.
Using small sized needle,
this pair used 316 yards.
With such a tight fabric
as the result of using small needle size
these should last a very long time.
So fun to knit ! ! !
Here they are
Soxes from the Shop Hop for the girls
and Sox for Hubby
Temp here is below 80 degrees F
Great temp for an August day.
Even had a small rain shower.
whoops, do I spy a dropped stitch in the cuff?
