I give up!!! I know, I know, I know. I said I wouldn't do it but I did. I re-frogged those Sweet Tart socks twice since my last post. I just couldn't get it right. I know I said I would work them till I got it right...I just couldn't look at that yarn anymore!!! I frogged them yesterday. I had gotten to the point where you turn the heel and I noticed a dropped stitch at the ribbed band. I thought I was going to cry. I must have reworked those socks 6 or 8 times. That was it...They went to the frog pond.

I started a new pair and all is well so far.

wool-ease wheat socks

It's worsted weight yarn on size 4 needles. I just used the same pattern you would use for the sock yarn. They seem like they might be alright. I have rather "fluffy" feet so they might just give me a little extra room. They are much thicker too, which will work out well since this is supposed to be a bad winter. If it's anything like last year, we'll be buried in lake effect snow before you know it. All the T.V. weather people are talking about snow Wed. and Thurs. They even said possibly we may get enough snow to shovel.

Here is the second pair of socks I made. I had never worn handmade socks before and wondered how they would be. Let me just say this...If you ever get the chance to wear them, do it. They were so comfortable. I just wish I could knit faster. I would like to eventually replace ALL my socks with handmade socks.

I went to my local yarn shop and started a wish list. So if anyone out there is shopping for me for the holidays, I WANT SOCK YARN!!! But, gift certificates for sock yarn works too. :)
