Socks for Mom

Now that they're in Mom's hands, I can post about them here.

Pattern: Fancy Silk Socks from Knitting Vintage Socks
Yarn: Hand-dyed merino by Sleeping Dragon yarn purchased from A Swell Yarn Shop at the Seattle Knitting Expo a few weeks ago.
Needles: Addi turbo size 1 (2.5 mm) circs, 2 circ method. (Patti, your former needles have now made socks)

Mom reports that they fit perfectly (I was worried). The pattern was fun to knit. I kept track of rows for once in my life, mostly because I had to anyway so I wouldn't lose my place in the pattern. I shortened the tops (as usual) by two pattern repeats and lengthened the heel flap (as usual).

I looooove those socks too and they're MINE! Picture doesn't show the beautiful lavender tones in them. They fit like she had one of my feet there to knit it on!
