Knitted in Plymouth Encore in a soft gray on a size 5 -40in circular using Magic Loop. It is goin to be a little big for me, but that's okay. I am going to use them for house socks.

Color is a little off here.

Thanks! I'm using this pattern booklet called Socks! The Next Step (http://www.software4knitting.com/psocksnext/socknext.htm).

Looks wonderful, Jan! They'll be nice and warm, too. Not that YOU need warm.

LOL Well, you'd be surprised how chilly it stays in my house! It's 80 outside right now, but I have goosebumps on my arms in here! And yes, the doors and windows are open.

Thanks everyone!

Looking good Jan. I haven't tried the magic loop method yet. I am still in DPN mode I guess.

It looks like you got a really good fit with the short row heel.

Very nice, Jan!! I know how you feel-its 55F outside now (very cold for us!! ) and inside my house I am *freezing*! My hands feel like ice blocks, lol.

I didn't dare comment on the blizzard thread, but I wish *we* could get some snow! I might feel differnetly if it was a regular thing though ;)

Oh I know! I so wish we would get some snow occasionally..maybe once a year! Right now it's 83 degrees and it's only 12:30pm! :shock: Of course it's supposed to be down in the low 60's by the end of the week. ;)
