definitely not an ugly, Pumpkin's peeping out from his favorite windowsill to thank you for all the kind comments about his kitty angel brother, Jaxon.
Remember the ugly black, gray and brown Sockotta socks I was working on for FK Dad's Day? Well here they are, done with time to spare and whatta ya know? they're not so ugly! Actually, FK Dad will LOVE these comfy cotton blend socks!
Mistake Stitch Rib - my own pattern, size #1 (2.5 mm) 40" addi turbo, magic loop method, yo short row heel with mini-gusset.
Plymouth Sockotta cotton/wool blend (I heart this yarn!!)
I predict these *ugly* socks will become one of FK Dad's favorites! Can't wait for Father's Day!
When you're fluffy, it's sometimes hard to find
These shockers should keep even the fluffiest of feet cozy and easy to find in the snow all winter long! hehehe....but to me, one of the best things about socks is you can really go crazy and knit outside
This is another one of my favorite yarns! Paton's Kroy.....it's a bit heavier than fingering weight, knits like buttah, is tough and hardwearing yet soft, soft, soft! And CHEAP!! Only problem is the colors are, shall we say, an acquired taste! There used to be some nice bright solids like orange, pink, and green but on checking the Paton's website, it seems those are discontinued. It's a real shame cause this is some great sock yarn! Snatch it up if you can find it!

Paton's Kroy 4 ply sock yarn, Fancy Free colorway, slightly more than 2 skanks (I like this so much I'm making footies for myself with the leftovers!)
Again, because a good digi camera is a joy forever, a close up of the stitch pattern.....WOOT!!
