Aaron's Socks

I got this yarn for Aaron to make him some socks and figured I would document the progress. He wants a taller sock, so I'm doing a long cuff in 1x1 rib. I'm using Australian Merinos wool and will be reinforcing the heel and toe using Woolly Nylon. I'm using size 4 dpns (48 stitch sock pattern)

Here is the finished pair:

And here is a close up of the toe (note that I forgot, yes forgot, to add the reinforcing thread on the toe, notice that I did in on the heal - DUH!)

Here's a poncho I made back in January. It's made from Bernat denim style (faded kahki is the color I believe) and knit on size 10.5 needles. I just knit two rectangles and then stitched them together (like most poncho patterns call for), then added the fringe. The fringe helps keep the stockinette stitch from rolling up.

I made this bear a couple of years ago for a friends daughter. The pattern is based on Mr. Bean's favorite teddy. Here is the link to the free pattern:

First pair of socks

I just finished my first pair of socks and I'm totally excited! Here's some pics to show the progression. I used Regia # 5269, Size 3 dpns, and the Ann Norling #12 Adult Basic sock pattern.
