Making Dorm Socks
I just loved Cherbo's cute socks she posted here, so I decided to make some dorm socks for a coed friend whose mom and I exchange family gifts at the holiday. Wish I could have found the great yarn Cherbo used, but alas, I could not find it locally and I needed to get knitting. So I used a wild Magic Stripe yarn and their pattern, and I am now making the 2nd sock. The repeat pf the striping pattern occurs only three or four times in one skein, so I am having something of a problem with matching the stripes since it takes slightly more than 2 repeats for one sock. I will be more careful to find yarn that repeats more often for future socks. Hope these socks keep her feet warm as she studies or chats with friends in the dorm.
