mom's cotty socks

Mom's Cotty socks are done! And look how nicely they fit! Just don't look too closely or you may notice that on this pair I thought not counting exactly how many knit rows there were between the pattern rows would be interesting (total accident of course, but you can't tell unless you look really really close).

Pattern: Cotty by me :)
Yarn: Socks that Rock mediumweight, colorway Rare Gems
Needles: US 1.5

I'm off to Reno for a nice relaxing long weekend with my Great-Aunt Mimi this weekend! What are you all up to? Hope its a good one!

Happy Friday!

I never look tooo closely at other's projects; I always reserve the extra-critical eye for my own 'variations'. Have a nice visit and stay cool.

Lucky mom! I have yet to start my Cottys for the Rav KAL; I had a knit-less week while we were traveling. This weekend? Overcoming jet-lag, and finding my knitting mojo!

Awesome Rare Gem Cottys! I'm only on row 2 of my Dippers and am sorely tempted to not bother continuing and switch over to Cottys.

Have a great weekend!

I see no mistakes and I am so thrilled to have finished one of my PRS Cotty's today! LOVE the pattern! So fun, so quick! I think I am definitely going to do a second pair with my Sam N' Ella. Sadly, the Shurt'ugals for my sis in Guppy still sit, so maybe the reward for finishing the Shurt'ugals will be to co for the second Cottys!

It always makes me smile to see the stash you add to Ravelry, in my imagination you must live in really big house!!! I promised myself to only buy some new yarn after finishing a project but I'm not still not very succesfull at the moment. Still I only have about 3 boxes filled with yarn, I'm really proud :D
