Socks ~ 2007's #1 & Contest reminder

09 January 2007


Here's my first finished pair for 2007. I cast on Dec 23 or 24 after I'd finished all my holiday knitting.

Yarn: Trekking XXL #109
Needles: Bamboo DPNs ~ 2.50mm for the legs & 2.25mm for the feet
Pattern: My standard sock pattern

Thoughts: I love the purple/navy/denim blue colour combination. Note to those who like to knit "identical twins" ~ it's not possible with this yarn (I suppose it would work if you bought 2 balls). It's the first time I've knit with Trekking and I don't think it will be the last (I have my eye on another, I think it's #78). It's a pretty soft fabric, compared to some others, but they haven't been worn (too hot here at the moment) or washed yet.
