socks for my momma

Mother's Day Socks
think i'll ever get tired of this pattern? Widdershins from knitty, lionbrand magic stripes, #3 addi turbos, 2 socks on 1 circ. the cuffs are 5" with a picot hem. this was my first try doing both socks at once, and my first picot hem. i really enjoyed both. i think i will be knitting both socks at the same time in the future, with the exception of Roza's socks, since i already have one completed. i didn't mean to use #3 addis. i mistakenly thought i had grabbed the #2s and didn't realize my mistake til later. oh well. they look like they will fit my mom just fine. they are her mother's day gift.

Basketweave crocheted dishtowel
i also finished the crocheted dishtowel out of lionbrand kitchen cotton on an H hook. i used the basketweave stitch pattern from the ultimate sourcebook of knitting and crochet stitches. very useful book.

that's all for now.
