YAY!!! It worked!!!

Well I took a chance and it worked! Here's the promised pics of my FOs from last week. You can click on the small pictures to view the full-sized versions.
Ribbed SocksHere's the ribbed socks I made out of some discontinued Kroy I bought last year. I had actually started this pair last summer, but had put it aside, and then frogged what I had done to make this pattern instead of the plain stockinette that I had been using. The pattern is my basic ribbed sock, and I am in the process of writing it up as a freebie on my site.


Pretty Petals in MayaHere's my Pretty Petals socks from the KAL I joined with other members of Jeanie Townsend's group. I used Lana Grossa Maya for these, which is a cotton/ wool blend. I've got my fingers crossed that these will be comfortable to wear, and will wash and wear well. I've got one more ball of this in my stash, and would like to add more since this was such a wonderful yarn to knit with.

Congratulations! Both pair of socks look wonderful. I've recently purchased some Regia Cotton Surf, a cotton/wool blend, and it was wonderful to work with too, and like you, I am hoping it will prove to be nice and soft on the feet and wear well also.

Have a great day!

Yum - I love both pair of socks! I'm particularly fond of the Pretty Petals; your choice of yarn looks terrific in that pattern.
