Aaahhhh! I almost couldn't post. I lost the ability to connect to the internet for days! Then we lost a monitor for our computer yesterday. The one I am using is from 1995! But, it works! Anyway, here is my pair of socks from the mystery sock "moonchild." I used 2.25mm square needles (love them) and Plymouth Happy Feet sock weight yarn (and just about all of it. I have big feet.) I did the plain heel flap and the fancy instep pattern. And I am considering ripping the one where the space in the instep decrease is bigger than the others. Can you see it on the left one? I hate being so picky. But, it will bug me! I love all of the variations for new sock ideas. I am so happy with my first real pair that fits me! I am done with gifts and more for me! It is fall weather here in Oregon and perfect knitting weather!
I will not be using this yarn again though. On the second sock the yarn was frayed about every 15 rows. Made me nutty. I was thinking of contacting the company but I don't know. I have never had a problem like this with any yarn I have used before. But, I hate being a complaining customer. I owned a business and had too much of it from the other angle.
