... and i did cast on for the mate ....

i finished up socken #1 yesterday afternoon. i like the fit, but suspect that i will eventually need to crochet some elastic into the cuff. though, part of me also thinks that the fabric is so firm that they may stand up on their own!


i checked my 10 day weather forecast ... and wouldn't you know we're on a trend for milder temps?!

i really love the look of this sock. i've always wanted to tackle a pair of kilt hose, and i guess this is the closest i've come ... i think highly textured knee highs are hot.

Knee-highs *are* the hottest thing ever.

Fantastic! I'm sure we'll have at least one more chilly spell before spring truly hits.

I'm not sure that all textured knee highs are not, but I know that these particular ones are!

Wow, that is a gorgeous sock! And I agree on the hotness of knee highs. :-)

It's definitely super hot!! Love it. Can't wait to see both pairs in action.

I know what you mean about the elastic plan. I think I need to do that for my knees highs, they keep slouching. :(
