Leisure socks ~ a gift

These socks were knit with Lady Bug handpainted yarn w/nubs in a cuff-down Slip Up Sock pattern (scroll to the bottom of the page for pattern and get a close-up look at the stitches by putting your mouse over the picture). It is a very nice yarn that I won in a contest with a promise to knit them up and send them back.
The pattern was easy to memorize and I found that I needed to increase the circumference by 6 stitches more. Even going to 72 stitches would still be okay since the pattern draws in.
.....yes, that's another one of my old doilies. ;)

Just found out that the handpainted yarn can be found at: Ladybug Sewing-Knitting, 121 Center St W., Warren OH 44481-9313. Phone: (330) 847-9965

Those look great. So cozy and comfy looking. And I have your socks dyed. Just gotta take the picture and send to you. Will do that later today (if I can remember)

Those are some cool looking socks, Maria! The yarn is it has confetti sprinkled on it. Of course I love the doily too!
Good job(s)
