As Soctober, 2012 winds down, my 8th pair of socks for 2012 has been finished. The 9th pair only needs the toe on the second sock grafted and I will get that done this afternoon.
The yarn is Opal, though I can’t remember which Opal it is. The pattern is the plain Jane pattern I use so often, which is based on my version of Classic Socks for the Family by Yankee Knitter.
I used 2.25 mm needles for this heavier yarn to make a very dense pair of socks. These are a gift for a friend who travels way up north quite often and I think they’ll come in handy for her.
