Hello Dolly

Hello Dolly!

That's the name of this yarn's color way. These socks are knit in Knit Picks Stroll Hand Dyed.  They turned out great and fit like... Uhhhh!?  A glove?  No, they fit like socks made just for me by me!  

Yep, Etsy has slowed down just enough for me to indulge in a little knitting. Yippee!

I used 2.75 mm needles and cast on 56 stitches. I followed a pattern by Red Heart called "Self-striping Knit Socks".  I love this pattern; it's the first pattern I used when I learned to make socks. 

I actually got out of bed in time to graft the toe closed on sock #2 so I could wear these today. I wore a raspberry colored cardigan and black slacks and my Alegria shoes so my socks would peek out.  I have my own unique fashion sense I suppose. If any one comments about my socks, I say... "I have happy feet!" And then I rip off my shoe so they can see the whole sock. Yep. I am weird like that!

Love my Alegria shoes. Great to show off hand knit socks!
