Hurrah! Another finished pair of socks! At 4 months per pair it is truly an occasion.
Pattern: Rudy Got Sole by Amy Klimt
Yarn: Brown Sheep Nature Spun Sport (it turns out... I thought it was sock yarn) in Stone
Needles: US 1, 2.25mm
Size: mens 10.5 (US).
R wore them right away and his only complaint was that they made his feet sweat, but it is spring here, so the time for wool socks is over... Especially since both of us wear Chacos all summer long.
I didn't bother blocking them since R wanted to wear them as soon as I wove in the last end. What is interesting is that the second sock came out just a tad bigger. Everything was the same (needles, cast on stitches etc), I just think I was just more relaxed when I did number 2.

Saartjie bootie.
I also started and finished this a few evenings ago. I hope to finish the second tonight or tomorrow.
I still need some cute buttons. The nice thing about baby stuff is that is goes so quickly! One evening = one bootie!
