I finished these in July. They are BILs Christmas socks for this year.

Mods: You could say this is entirely a mod. I used Judy’s Magic Cast-on for a toe-up start. Knit in the round with a short row heel and 4×4 ribbing.

Facts to Remember: That I might need to check my increases that I have an equal number on top and bottom. My first sock seemed to be right until I got to the start of 4×4 ribbing and I was 4 stitches off.

Things I love: The yarn. I am totally in love with this yarn. I got to review this yarn a little while ago. The colors are fabulous. They don’t seem to pool or stripe very easily. I think this year.s pair of socks is more successful than last year. I also enjoyed the plain stockinette stitch section on the foot. I knit many of these areas during movies. A nice mindless knit.
