Gift Exchange Socks

Patons Kroy Socks FX

I made these socks in record time. For the past several years, my co-worker, Mrs. W and I have had a gift exchange. She paints ceramics for me and I knit for her.  She loves purple.

I've been rather busy filling pillow orders the past several weeks so I was scrambling Christmas Eve to finish these socks.  I really like how they turned out. I made them mismatched on purpose. I used new needles for these socks. They are made of carbon fiber. I'll have to share more about them another time.

I made the socks on 2.75 mm needles and I started the socks by casting in 52 stitches. They are cozy and thick.
