First Socks!

gardenerstitch's picture

I've completed my first pair of socks! They are a Christmas present for my mom. I used Patons Classic Wool Merino "Regency" on size 8 dpns. I've also started a garter stitch scarf for another gift. I tried the stitch on different size needles and settled on size 11's because I like the modern chunkiness of the fabric created. I'm using Patons SWS "Natural Earth" for the scarf. I love how soft this yarn is, however it can split easily, so I do need to keep vigilant. Overall, I'm happy with the way it's turning out.

Those socks are great. I'm sure your mother will cherish them.

The scarf looks to be coming out nicely as well. Actually, I've never seen a project come out badly with that yarn, it just seems like incredible stuff to work with.

I love the color progression on your scarf. The socks are very well knitted and look really cozy. I know what you mean about the yarn splitting- annoying, but what can you do?
