Knit Birthday Socks for Liz

I can't think of anyone who wouldn't want a cozy pair of knitted socks, which is why eventually all my friends will end up with a knitted pair of socks from me at some point.

I made this pair for my friend Liz of cozyblue. The sock yarn is leftover from my Sunset Highway sweater, and I even weighed the yarn and felt SURE I had enough yardage to make two socks. I guess you can see that didn't work out...

Pattern: Waffle Rib Socks by by Carolyn (Jill) Ferneau
Yarn: Hedgehog Fibres Sock in Budgie

I thought about going back and reknitting both toes to be the same, but the more I looked at it, the more it made me laugh. I figured that's a good thing, so I gifted them just like this. It looks like the toe was dipped in a pool. That's how we'll think of it.

This yarn is so soft and lovely. Knitting the Sunset Highway sweater was my first time working with Hedgehog, and it totally lived up to the hype.

I'm still working on my dad's Christmas socks for this year, so more socks to come!
