Packers Socks

Miss Lime mentioned this yarn a couple podcasts ago. As she said, even though it's called the "Oregon Ducks" colorway, it's just about the perfect Packers colors. My best friend happens to love the Packers. How could I resist this yarn then? It's DK weight yarn which I don't think I've ever used for socks. I used Lorna's for my first pair and have pretty much stuck with the skinny sock yarns ever since. The knitting sure went a lot faster with the thicker yarn! They took maybe 4 days to finish and that's really fast for me. (Finished around January 28th)

This stuff is wonderfully soft! My only complaint is that some of the green came off on my needles (and my fingers!) Not a ton, just enough to make it annoying. But oh well, the end result is really soft and yummy and pretty so I'm ok with a little green here and there!

Pattern: generic toe-up, about an inch of 2x2 rib at the top, picot bind-off
