52 Week Challange - Debbie (Grandma 07)

Hi, I have finished my first project for this KAL. I knit this pair of socks with the new Mini Mochi yarn in the Violets Rainbow colorway. The lace pattern is a mix of patterns from the book Socks a la Carte. I must say that I LOVE this yarn!! It is sooo soft and easy to knit with. It was hard to put this project down because I was so fascinated by the way the colors changed.

These were cast on on Jan. 21 and cast off today...Jan 27. I'm guessing they took about 350 yards of yarn as that is what most of my socks use. Oh, the leg is 5.5 inches from cast on to heel.

i need to get some lovely blockers like those too!

ps i like the way you made them fraternal. i've played with forcing the "identical" and it can be done, but i also enjoy just seeing what will be naturally.
looks as though you made sure to start with same tonality of violets?
this is another one of my faves!

Simply stunning! And I love the Loopy Ewe blockers, I have a couple I use, too.

Thanks for showing the beautiful job on the Mini Mo "Violets" socks!

I've just sent off EIGHT new colorways to try in Mini Mochi!
