Socks!



Took a little break from hats to finish a pair of socks I started in the middle of November. 

Pattern:  Ribbed Socks for Bigger Feet (by Susan B. Anderson)
Yarn: Zitron Trekking XXL

I used my digital kitchen scale to measure the skein of yarn and divide it in half.  I wound the yarn into two separate balls, and cast on both socks at the same time on separate needles, paying close attention to the pattern/colors.  Ended up with some very matchy-matchy socks.  Yay!  I would like to make some different sock patterns but am stuck in a rut with this pattern because it's a great fitting sock!  The ribbing makes the socks stretchy so it's a nice form fit.
