Thick Vermont Socks

Thick Vermont Socks

Pattern: Ann Norling Adult Socks II, knitted for worsted weight on size 7 US needles.

Yarn: Local (from Montgomery, Vermont) heavy worsted weight sock yarn 55% yearling mohair/45% lambswool, natural-dyed (the plum with cochineal/the green with cosmos, heliopsis, marigold)

These were knitted for the Socktoberfest knitalong. I originally called them the Vermont Vineyard Socks for their colors; I renamed them the Socked-Intober socks because they were finished during the Nor'Easter of October 24-25, 2005.

They are the first socks I've knitted for myself, the 2nd pair I've ever knitted. And this is the first two-color strand work I've done.
