FO: Bedtime Socks for Mom
I finished these just this night. They are made from 50% wool, 50% acrylic doubled yarn on size 9 needles. I used this pattern but added a cable on the first two needles. Hope you enjoy!

The only reason I finished them so quickly was because they were on big needles, other wise I'd still be working on the first one. . My mom says they are like a blanket on her feet and kept her warm last night. Thanks for all your compliments!

The two balls of yarn actually didn't have matching stipes, I just started on whatever color that was there. Now, when you look at the tiny bit of yarn that's left, you can't even tell they're the same kind, let alone the same dye lot. That's why they're so multicolored.

My mom's feet are very pleased with themselves...thank you for saying so!
