Alpaca Socks Finished!



They are finished!!! My first pair of men's socks for my husband!! He loves them, and although it's almost too warm here to wear them, he promises he will. They are made from Frog Tree sport weight alpaca, and they are SO SOFT!! My cat loves them, and you're seeing part of her in the photo....
I used 56 stitches on size 2 dpn's and roughly followed the Beginner Sock Pattern by Knitting Pure and Simple. That pattern is the easiest for this sock novice to use...now I'm off to finish another UFO...

I love your socks! Great job. I have about 8 skeins of alpaca. You gave me a great idea for socks for hubby. I love your blog!
