Purple Socks

I just completed this great pair of purple tweedish socks!  This is my first time at knitting with a pattern stitch and in the beginning I nearly gave it up as I had to "frog". (rip it) quite a few times before I got the hang of it.  Once I got the rhythm of the stitch it went easily and I am loving wearing these beauties.

They were knitted on size 1 needles using Stroll fingering weight sock yarn from Knit PIcks.www.knitpicks.com/knitting.cfm  I like this yarn.  It works up well, will know more after I wash them for the first time.  It is superwash merino wool with just a bit of poly something for stretch.

The pattern is called Hedgerow Socks and is offered as a free download at Ravelry..http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hedgerow-socks-2. 

I continue to knit mittens for charity, am sending them to a Native American reservation in the Dakotas and my next project will be a scarf.

Hi Elaine,
Please update on the situation with your grandson and his mom one of these days. I hope things are going all right.
I didn't think you were complaining. Just telling it like it is!
