So, I finished the Elf socks last night. I do like the result, but I have to tell you the yarn was a fight. I ordered the yarn from an ETSY sight, RedbirdYarn. It came promptly but it was splitty. Especially on the heel flap, I felt like I was wrestling with the yarn. I turned them inside out and did a three needle bind off for the toes. I may gift these, I haven’t decided yet.
I cast on 64 stitches on zero needles. They are a perfect gauge. Oh and One of the wooden needles splintered in the process.
I”ll be sending these pairs to my great niece and nephew who have December birthdays. The NEON yarn was purchased with Allison in Minnesota this past winter. I think they are good for a 10 year old boy. The purple pinks were a local wool from a Tennessee yarn shop , also with Allison. I recall it had good bounce.
I did a nice round toe for the purple pinks. I did a Russian toe on the neon where you use a crochet hook. Boy, it sure helps me to keep notes on my Ravelry project page.
Today, casting on for more socks. I’m a sockaholic……like Dee. Wheeeee!
