Two Feet

 I cast on for a pair of women's socks with the newly dyed yarn.
64 stitches on a number 1 needle.
Socks for Bill ( a size 15 shoe) on #5 needles over 60 stitches;
this is the yarn from Russia--a type of Mohair but a single ply.
Bill always wears through the heels of the socks I make him so I am going to sew some
deerskin to the heel to see if it helps them last longer !


  1. Great idea to add deer skin to the heel! Please show pictures when you do that!!

  2. Woo hoo for casting on new socks! I usually have several on the needles but I just can't seem to work up the mojo in this heat.

  3. That blue is SO pretty and the mohair looks really soft. I'm hoping you show attaching the moleskin. I've never heard of that.
