It almost feels like cheating - knitting a pair of socks with aran weight yarn! Bravo for a husband who is happy to wear wild bright beautiful socks, although I'm fairly certain that his plan is to keep them well hidden under boots and pants!


Pattern: Thuja by Bobby Ziegler from Knitty Winter 2005
Yarn: 128 gms Artyarns Handpaint Stripes color 115 - look at those perfectly matching stripes - quite a feat with this yarn. (I got mine at Webs very inexpensively, but I don't see it there now)
Needles: 2 socks on 1 40" 3.75 mm circular needle
Size: Men's size 9

They are now affectionately called the "clown socks" ...


Next .... Annetrelac with Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn - color soon changes to yellow then orange - these are going to be cool!


The quilt squares are done for Salt Water Taffy - I started with the kit then added enough from my batik stash to make 80 blocks. Such a SPRING quilt - it's fun to play with these beautiful colors.
