And There Shall Be Happy Feet

I crossed off one item on my holiday knitting list:  The Boot Socks.

Two skeins of Blue Sky Worsted Alpaca – such a lovely, lovely yarn that I just wanted to lay in instead of knit.  I wish I could afford to make a sweater out of this for myself, but I think I would have to give up paying rent and feeding my family in order to do that.  The black on the toes and heels is Berroco Vintage, another yarn I really like – that is washable and fits my budgetary restrictions.  (Why do I have such expensive tastes??)

The pattern is Walking Into the New Year.  It is a well written pattern – that of course I modified as I went.  I took out the heel flap in favor of an after-thought heel because I didn’t know if I would have enough yarn.  I shortened the leg by about one repeat and left out the ribbing at the ankle.

Here’s to hoping it is just what the recipient wanted!

    I love being able to cross off things from the Christmas-to-do-list! These look lovely and warm.

    Absolutely gorgeous! I always like the contrasting heels and toes on socks and that black is the perfect counterpoint to the rich bluey-gray.
