April Socks: DONE!

Yes! I have completed my socks for the Sock-A-Month KAL, and earlier than last month. Now I will have the A behing my name to go with the M. You can visit Chrissy to check on the KALer's. And, now for the big reveal. Here they are:

The Specs:

Yarn: Plymouth Sockotta in color way # 5612 100 gm ball

Needles: US 2 Brittany DPN's (my favorite - hence my hunt for size 1, that I can't seem to get)

Pattern: Basic 56 sts cast on and worked in Stockinette with hour glass heel

If you look, you can see how much I have left of this yarn. If I am feeling froggy enough, they may become a pair of footies for Annie. And the stripping gave me a little problems, if you look at the heels, you can see where they are about 1 to 2 rows off. Nothing major, and I was not about to frog the second sock to make them match. Besides, they are just for me.

On Friday, Miss Amy and I ordered some yarn from Knit Picks. I ordered some Pallette in red so I can make my mom a pair of socks for Mother's Day, as she is always asking, "When are you gonna make me a pair?" So, I am going to use the Bubble Wrap socks from Sock Bug. I also ordered some of the Knit Picks Color Your Own sock yarn. I am going to try my hand at Kool Aid dyeing.

This afternoon, we found Vinny asleep like this:

Now, that's a good sleep, tongue hung out and everything.

Aww, I love it when they fall asleep with their tongues out! So cute. The socks are adorable too.

I wish I could sleep like that LOL! Great socks and I can't tell that the stripes are off... I'm looking forward to seeing the bubble wrap socks as you work on them, it's interesting.
