Long car rides, like the one to Gettysburg, make for great knitting opportunities. I finished a pair of socks on the way down – just in time to make 9 finished pairs by the end of June. These also make my first finished pair for Summer of Socks 09.
These are for my sister-in-law, Jen. Her birthday was a few weeks ago so technically they are late. But since she didn’t know I was making them, I figure it’s okay. Plus, this is her first ever pair of handknit socks and I think she’ll find they were worth waiting for.
I cannot remember what the yarn is. I know I didn’t buy it so it was either from a swap or it was an outright gift from a reader. I’m pretty sure it was handdyed by the sender and I wish I could remember who gave it to me. It’s gorgeous! The colors didn’t pool at all and it knit up beautifully.
Happy Birthday, Jen! Wear ’em in good health!
