footie socks

Talk about a fast project! These worsted weight footies were speedy and fun. They're Margaret's pattern, originally written for Tessin yarn. We talked about using the pattern for Cozy's beginning sock class, but we needed to use a different yarn since we're no longer carrying the Tessin. Berroco Pure Merino was our top choice, and the results are great.

Are you close to Durham? Always wanted to knit socks but put off by the tiny needles and fine yarn? Start with these! Come sign up for the beginning sock class at Cozy! Once you experience the construction of this type of sock using double point needles, you can move on to sock yarn and those size 1's.
