Deep Forest is Done

I have finished the first Xmas present. These will be for my daughters fiance, Frank, who I absolutely adore.

My basic top-down 2-circular needle sock pattern with the following stitch pattern for the leg and instep:

Rnd 1- 8: K2, P2.
Rnd 9 & 10: Knit.
Rnd 11 - 18: P2, K2
Rnd 19 & 20: Knit.

Yarn: Fearless Fibers Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn, 2/24 acrylic for reinforcement thread.

Color: Deepest Forest

Needles: Size 2 Addi Turbo Lace Circular.

Cast On: October 25, 2008
Completed: November 12, 2008

Comments: I really enjoyed knitting this stitch pattern. I also am quite pleased with how well the yarn I used for reinforcement thread worked. It is a 2/24 acrylic, used on knitting machines (I have tons of the stuff in my knitting room), in a deep green that blended so well you can't even tell I added it to the heels and toes-except they feel a little cushier.

Now I have to decide on what the next pair will be.
