I started these socks on Friday and finished them on Sunday. The pattern is so easy and fun to crochet. The results are acrylic and I did modify them somewhat. These have given me the confidence to knit a swatch for knitted socks out of a yarn that I received from a KnitCrate. The swatch is washed and set out to dry. Once it is dry I will be measuring the stitches per inch and using that to create my first socks. This time they will be knit cuff down one at a time.
What an auspicious start to the year!
