Another pair of chat-room socks...

These have gone to Jerry in Detroit, the third-place winner. Two more pair to go, then it will be time for another contest!

This pair is just like Woody's, except for the heel flap. I used EOP for Jerry's and regular heel-stitch for Woody's...not that you could tell that from the picture. It's hard to photograph black.

This is KnitPicks Swish again. I wish they'd make this stuff in a fingering-weight yarn for socks. I love working with it, but it's just too heavy for socks for me.

The next pair of chat-contest socks will go to Ralph. I'm thinking blue Swish for him. First, though, I need to knit up a pair of little socks and a hat for our friends in Texas, Dale and Suzi, who are expecting their first grandbaby very, very soon. I'm using Regia sock yarn for those. Also on the needles are a pair of socks for me in Opal Bamboo, another pair in DK, bright red, and I really need to knit myself a pair of fingerless mitts to keep my hands warm while I chat...

Sarah, you really like my boring black socks? Thanks, sweetie! :)
