A Tale of Two Socks….

My 11 year old son completed his fifth grade socks and brought them home last week, the final week of school. His are the colorful patriotic socks, knit on wooden double pointed needles they made in class. Not all of the fifth graders made socks. The teacher felt some of them were beyond hopeless. But Z perservered and has 2 lovely socks to show for it. They fit him nicely. He has to sew in the strings, but that is all. The other sock is one I just finished. It is the Dublin Bay sock from the Mossy Cottage blog pattern. Here is the link for the blog where the pattern can be found. (Anyone wishing to leave me instructions on how to hook directly to the other blog – go ahead.) http://www.nwkniterati.com/movabletype/mossycottage/
I used Plymouth Socketta sock yarn for it. I love the weight of this sock for summer wear, and really enjoyed knitting it. The second sock of the pair is currently on the needles, except when middle son’s dog gets it and tries to play with it. So the yarn is a tangled mess, but the knitting continues.

And here is my son’s sock looking lovely in the wildflower portion of our garden.
