Now that Father’s Day, my Mom’s Birthday, a late Mother’s Day & a late Dad’s Birthday are all over I can show you what I did for them.
These are Dad’s socks, my own improvised pattern. Toe up, magic loop on size 2.5 32″ circ needles, 2 at once, 72 sts with a 6 st broken rib repeat, short row heels.
The yarn is from a wonderful dyer on Ebay, Over the Rainbow Yarns. She no longer sells the superwash sock yarns, I have been hanging on to this one for a long time waiting for the perfect use & this was it!
This is Mom’s Forest Canopy Shawl. More of a shawlette size, resting over the shoulders to keep the chill off.
I also made Mom a pair of socks using Tofutsies, size 2.5 32″ circ needles, magic loop, 2 at once, toe up. My usual method ;o)
