Rock & Weave is on my feet!

Once I got to the toe and grafting, I was finally able to use my darning egg ... something I purchased and has been proven to be an invaluable tool for socks!

So now I have my first pair of STR from the Blue Moon Sock Club!

I love the color and the feel of the yarn, altho it's a little thicker than what I'm use to for sock yarn. The color is SO ME!!!




BTW, notice that they didn't pool the same way in both socks. You would think that was strange ... but the yarn came to me with two ends tyed together in the middle of the skein ... and obviously they didn't match up . That's okay tho, I like to be different these days!






















I'm finished and I love them! But see that flap at the bottom of the cuff? You can see it in the 3rd picture from the bottom. I had to tack that down on both sides as you can see in the next picture.

NOW, I love 'em!

You know I've never used a darning egg. Maybe I need to look into one... and the socks are wonderful! I love the buttons!

Cool socks! I love the colour too. Are the buttons just decorative? Or does the cuff actually button open and closed?
