Checkerboard Socks Finished

I finished these on Saturday. I'd used the new KnitPicks circulars (not modular), size 2.25 mm (#.5), which I loved. Yarns are Trekking XXL color 284, dye lot 4896 for the blue gray and for the red, some left-over Lang Jawoll (I love this dependable yarn!) in color 83.0098/ lot #581/71. I used the matching reinforcement yarn for the toes.

The D.B. loves the checkerboard pattern. If I'd had more red, I would have used it for the heels as well.

They fit her perfectly.

GORGEOUS Handwork and thank you TONS for the history I was sorely lacking on the last podcast. I'll be reading your notes on the next 'cast if that's cool with you.
And I'm WAY excited to 'meet' you. It seems to me you have a mighty cool job!
