Sock Photo, Pair #170

Saturday, July 4th, 2009

I received a lovely skein of Colinette Jitterbug sockyarn, for my 50th birthday at the end of November. In January I cast on for a pair of socks, Turkish toe (toe up) with afterthought heels. They became the 170th pair of socks I have completed.

It took a few months to finish them, I think they were done in May but I did not keep my normally good records on timing. It took me even longer to get photographs. Here they are.

I used the leftover yarn from each sock, to make some wristwarmers for myself. Do you think I can find them to photograph them? Not today. No luck there.

I had never made myself a pair of fingering-weight wristwarmers before. They are very dense and block wind very well, and that makes them quite warm. I like them very much. And I used all but about 6 inches of that precious skein!
