Paired

The second pair of TopCat Merino/cashmere yarn in the Spring Meadow color way is finished!
I only had a few yards left but I managed to get two pair from one skein!
Toe up socks on 2.5 needles over 60 stitches;  I used the slipped stitches to give it a striped affect on the top of the foot. 
  (One pair of socks are for sized 8 women's and the other was for a 10 1/2)
While I finished knitting it before art class, Caleb and Eli watched a movie while waking up.
Later, I watched Ella ride her scooter but I had to take this photo from FB because mine didn't turn out!  It was a busy but wonderful weekend with the C's and E's!

  2. I am always surprised by the lack of clothing on your people and then I remember you are down in Florida. It's freezing up here again. All the woollies are on and I still can't get warm. I walked around all day inside in a hat, sweater and shawl. Brrr... March cold is the worst cold.

  6. It's always nice when you can squeeze two pairs of socks out of one skein. I have small feet so I can usually manage it.
