Finished

That's me blue socks finished. I'm quite pleased with them, the wool was very nice to knit up. They took just over two 1 oz balls of Lee Target "Motoravia" four ply. I still have four and a bit balls left and will definitely do another pair with it, probably something patterned.














I am now knitting a pair of socks for Freezing Toes which is in response to a request in my email newsletter from Castoff for people to knit socks for the victims of the earthquake in Pakistan. I'm glad to be able to do something for this particular disaster as I feel that it received far less media coverage than either the Tsunami or the New Orleans flooding and therefore probably got a lesser response.

Oooh those socks look lovely and toasty. I haven't heard of that yarn before, where'd you get it?
(although I am on a yarn diet at the mo, it isn't stopping me doing 'research'!)

Thanks for your comment on my blog! My socks are coming along very slowly but I'm starting to see why people like knitting them so much.

Your socks look great!

Thanks for the link to the 'castoff' project - I'll definitely be knitting some socks. At the moment I'm knitting hats for the children of Pakistan. Just the thought of them stuck in those mountains in that freezing weather... how can anybody not want to help? ~Sharon
