Socks Finished

Well, there has been a lot of reorganizing. Trying to get my craft stuff more all together. I think it worked well, just took a couple days to do. So I haven't gotten much crafting done, but I did manage to finish my mom's Christmas socks and Vera's matching pair.

Yarn: Rozetti - Always Dreams
Content: 75% Acrylic 25% Wool
Care: Machine Wash, Lay Flat To Dry
Color: 116-10 (Variegated Olive Green)
Needles: US 2 / 2.75mm wooden dpns
Gauge: 6.5 sts/1"
Size: US 7 Woman
Pattern: My own.

The gusset is the calculations that Cookie A. recommends in her book, Sock Innovation.

I tried a round toe here.

Vera's socks have the same info, I just adjusted my pattern for a 1 year old size, using this chart from Wendy Knits for size reference. I made them a little big because they are for Christmas and warm.

And here are some pictures of them together:

All in all, I loved the way the two pair turned out!


  1. Very cute - they look so warm and snuggly!

  2. So cute!! It feels so good to get organized, doesn't it. Even if it takes a while, it's always so worth it in the end.

  3. Wow finished and they look great, I need a pair of those, I like the color also.

  4. I really like those, good job!!!
