purplesocks.jpg Here they are! The purple striped socks worn by their new owner. Yarn is Regia Cotton Surf. Pattern is two at a time toe up socks with a 2×2 rib on the instep and the legs.

I think I said before that I won’t use that yarn again. It’s just too cottony even though it’s supposedly mostly wool. I just really dislike the feel of cotton when I’m knitting – but when I sew I want everything to be cotton. Go figure. Not that the final product was yucky to the touch or anything, They’re actually quite pleasant on the foot. (I had to try and cram my foot into them and see if they were just an ooch small for me, because I needed them to be about a size 6 foot… )

Anyway, I’m really pleased with how they came out. And I think the recipient likes them, too, judging from her grin and exclamations of joy. But then, that’s my Becky… Enjoy dear friend.
