Posies for My Toesies

They’re finished!  These socks are knit from my Harriet’s Posies handspun…what a thrill to think that these started as a 8 oz. braid of fluff, and they became socks right here in my house. Wahooty!

This project was a great learning experience for me.  I realized while spinning the first single that I was going to end up with some enormous yellow stretches.  For the second single, I pre-drafted my roving a bit to make sure the big section of yellow would be broken up and stretched out over the skein.  When plied, I still ended up with some seriously yellow sections, but I’ve learned how to deal with it better next time.

There is quite a bit left of this yarn…I may use it for socks for one of the wee girlies.

    Actually, Cathe, it’s not that pattern, but one close to it…you alternate one row of k2, p2 with a k row. I think it’s called garter rib stitch.
