I have finished the last pair of socks for my aunt. These are simple tube socks, knit with Woolease, with size 6 circs. Since my aunt has had a stroke her feet stay cold, so for her birthday we will send her Cascading Leaves Socks (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2006%20a%20new%20year%20in%20KNITTING/CascadingLeavesFeet.jpg), Mock Croc Socks (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2006%20a%20new%20year%20in%20KNITTING/MocCrocFoot.jpg), PJ Socks (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2006%20a%20new%20year%20in%20KNITTING/WildflowerPJfeet.jpg) and these tube socks. Lonnie will ship them all tomorrow :D

I'm sure they'll work great. Love the colors!

BTW..why did you cut out the background like that? I saw someone else do that, too. :??

Thanks everyone :D
Jan, I erased the background to make the socks pop so that there won't be anything behind them and bc I like playing with paint ;)

I just found it & realized u could put pictures in it, I actually had to use it when I was designing Born To Knit cloths, then just started playing with it. I played with it years ago when we got our 1st computer & had forgotten all about it...it's fun ;)

Where did you find the pattern?

thanks :D
I used this pattern (http://knitting.about.com/library/blspiral.htm) for the spiraling & since I knew my gauge & the size I was shooting for I cast on 48 sts on size 6 needles for the adult sock, using worsted wt yarn :D

Thanks, dusti, Cascading Leaves is really easy to do, too :D I think I'm about to do it again, too, for another gift sock, in a solid color so that the design will pop. LOL, I can't help myself...it was fun to knit...must knit more :shock:
