January Socks Fini!

I finished a pair in just 15 days! This is a big deal for me since I very rarely have time to knit during the day and have just a few hours after the Buggernut is in bed at night.

Perfect with my Keens, no?

Pattern: Charade by Sandra Park
Yarn: Merino Sock in Rum Runner (the first Booty Club shipment)
Needles: size 1 Susan Bates DPNs
Mods: I cast on 64 sts for the leg, but knit on 68 for the foot. I LOVE this pattern.

Up next: February KAL socks I'm naming Strange Little Valentines....want a peek?

Your Charade socks are beautiful! I just discovered your blog and you know what is funny? I just finished a pair of Charades, I also finished not long ago a pair of Strange Little Mama and I built the little village by Martha Stewart for Christmas! lol!
