FO: Second Socks for Izzy

Let the kiddo pick out her own sock yarn at Michaels — the right price-point for a growing teen with a tendency to be extra tough on her clothes. I'll give it to her: Izzy located a skein with cashmere in it.

Yarn: Loops & Threads Luxury Sock (Ocean)

These socks also mark a first: major surgery. When both pairs were done, Izzy tried them on...only to discover that I'd made the foot too short. So I snipped apart the toes, ripped back to the start of the toe decreases, added a good 1/2", and then finished them up again. Can't tell you how clever it made me feel.

  3. Those socks look awesome! I love striping yarn, it means you can knit the socks as fast as possible, and still have lots of visual interest. They look great!
