This is the last pair of Chat-Contest socks, going to Larry in Arizona. Regia yarn, cartridge-rib stitch pattern from "The Ultimate Sock Book".

I love these socks! The yarn knitted up in a sort of mossy-oak camouflage color.

Take a look at the gorgeous cutting boards in the picture...Larry built them for me as a house-warming gift, and they're just beautiful! I am so lucky to have such a talented friend.

They Fit!
These pictures of Baby J.D. and his mommy came from our friends in Texas. I'm so happy the socks and hat fit him. Gabi was having some trouble with early labor, and when I started knitting, I was afraid the baby would be a preemie and very tiny, so I made them small. Instead, he was born a very healthy 8 pounds + and is doing quite well, indeed.

Beautiful Mommy, handsome baby! :)

Texas-Bound and RalphSocks...

These little socks and matching hat will be on their way to Texas soon for our friends Suzi and Dale's brand-new grandson. Not-so-little J.D. weighed in at just over eight pounds on Thursday evening. I hope these will be big enough for him! Congratulations, Mai and Grandpa!

Regia yarn, basic baby socks and hat.

These socks are pair number four from the chat room contest I held in January. This pair goes to Ralph in South Carolina. KnitPicks Swish in worsted weight, using the same basic wide-rib sock pattern as the black socks shown previously.

Next up: the last pair of ChatContestSocks on the needles. This pair is in a cotton/wool blend for a recipient in Arizona.
