For Mother's Day, my daughter gifted me with me a yarn and a pattern for knitting socks. She reasoned that it does get cold in the winter in Florida and thought I could use them. I started them in Montana, but then dropped a stitch or two and with complete frustration, put that knitting away.
This last week I have been at it again. I finished the first sock and this morning started the second. There is a way to knit both socks on two circular needles at the same time, but I have not taken the time to learn the manipulation needed to do this. I am totally content knitting socks on two circular needles, one sock at a time.
This fun pattern is called "Laughing Matters" and the yarn is "Aussi Sock", made in Australia from 90% Aussie Merino and 10% nylon. Color is called "faded valentine." Thank you Knit Purl Hunter for this pattern.
