Mothers' Day socks completed

Mothers' Day Garter Rib Socks
Mothers Day Garter Rib Socks

Pattern: Garter Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks
Yarn: Opal Sugar Almond Magic Yarn from Get Knitted
2.5mm addi turbos
Started: 26th March 2006
Finished: 26th April 2006

DD gave me the yarn for Mothers Day and apart from going wrong on the second sock when I was ill these socks have gone really smoothly. They're the first pair that I've knitted from Sensational Knitted Socks & I fully intend to use the book again soon.

Another first for me is that the stripes match up! I tried to get my first pair to match but a stripe was missing & then I ran out of yarn so it didn't happen.

I like how the garter rib pattern has turned out in a self-patterning yarn! Very useful to know! ;-)
