Holiday Knitting

My holiday knitting this year (actually, last year :)) was two pairs of socks, both for my mom. 

 The first was a pattern I’ve been wanting to make ever since everyone in blogland started making them.

Pattern: Uptown Boot Socks by Jennifer Appleby from Favorite Socks.
Yarn: Fleece Artist Merino 2/6, 100% Merino Wool, 325 m, 1 skein in Mahogany
Needles: US 1 (2.25 mm)

These socks took a little more time because of the cabling, but otherwise were very easy. The yarn is beautiful, and I’m looking forward to making these socks again for myself using a different colorway.

The second pair of socks were the Cable Rib Socks by Erica Alexander, originally in Interweave Knits Spring 2005, and republished in Favorite Socks.

Yarn: Louet Gems Fingering Weight, 100% Merino Wool, 185 yds., 2 skeins, in Navy
Needles: US 1 (2.25 mm)

Easy pattern, great yarn! This was the first time I used Louet Gems, and I’m looking forward to using it again. In fact, I had quite a bit of the second skein left over, and am planning on using it for the stripes on the Ribby Retro Socks from the Fall 2007 Issue of Knitscene.
