Maizy Sweetie Pie socks finished
This is a fast and easy pattern which was a lot of fun to knit. Many thanks to Kala Hotakainen for sharing it with us. The color doesn't show up properly in these pics; it is quite a lovely shade of greenish blue--kind of like a light teal green. The color of the yarn is Sea Gray. I did 12 repeats of the pattern for a 7" cuff. Fred calculated the yardage for me at 277.4 yds. I weighed the pair of socks at 68 grams with 32 grams left to knit toes and heels on some other pair in the future. This pattern was perfect for this yarn. I actually enjoyed knitting with it unlike the last time I used it with much smaller needles. I'm going to use it more often now with the 2.5mm needles :) I started this on 1/10 and finished on 1/27 with the YFM socks in between. I still need to take a pic of them finished and will try to post them tomorrow.
