FO: Worsted Weight Socks - Lion Wool
I've made several pairs of handknit socks, but only have two pair of my own. And one of them is starting to wear away. So, I've decided to knit a pair of worsted weight socks to wear around the house.

I'm using Lion Wool yarn that I got on sale at Hobby Lobby for a few dollars a skein. Great deal!

I'm almost finished with the first sock:


Here's the pattern I'm using, from the Sweaterscapes website.

I did a stockinette heel instead, because it feels more comfortable to me with my wide feet. I also switched to stockinette for part of the leg as well. Same reason - comfort.

The great thing about worsted weight socks, they take no time at all to knit up. The color is lovely also!

You really should try it, Dollyce. After you turn the first heel, you'll be grinning like a little girl. They are REALLY FUN to make!
