Yes, another pair of "Priscilla's Dream Socks"! I think I have found my perfect "plain jane" sock pattern. Fits perfectly, is fun, practical, and not bad looking either (if I do say so myself!!). It has a shortrow heel and toe - both made identical to one another.
This pair is made of a Regia Cotton Surf skein that I have had in my stash for quite some time. I have never knit a cotton pair of socks, although this is a blend of cotton/wool/nylon - it feels totally different to me. I hope it holds it's shape well.
Stats: "Priscilla's Dream Socks" by Priscilla Gibson-Roberts from the IW "Favorite Socks" book. 64 stitches. Upper leg knit on 2.5mm Pony Pearl DPNS, lower leg and foot on 2.25mm Pony Pearls.
Next on my knitting schedule is a sweater...YIKES!! Did I say "sweater"?? And, not a toddler sweater?? Double Yikes!! Wish me luck.....
