Pattern: Yankee Knitters Classic Socks Pattern with Stretchy cast on from Twisted Sisters Sock Workbook
Yarn: Regia Jacquard in 5272
Needles: Brittany 5" US 2 dp's
Started: January 5, 2003
First time I ever used self-patterning yarn and I really like how they turned out! They fit great and that "stretchy cast-on" is a must for future socks.
One down, one to go! This pair of socks is on hold now because I promised my husband that I would make him a new pair of socks and the yarn he picked out has arrived. You can see them here.
This is my second pair of Regia's, but my first pair of "self-patterning" socks and I am having a lot of fun knitting them. I tried a new cast on for this pair of socks and I really like it. I would tell you how I did it, but I'm sure that would violate some copyright law since I got it out of the Twisted Sisters Sock Workbook. These may be done by month end!
Trying to finish Pete's socks before I finish these.
