My first two FOs of 2016 are, of course, socks. Both are plain old 60st vanilla socks, heel over 30sts, toe to 20sts. Both are knit with Patons Kroy Sock yarn
, the first pair is sweet stripes, the second pair is slate jacquard. Ravelry details here
I'm on a heavy work sock roll at the moment. One of the dollar-type stores in town is carrying Briggs & Little Tuffy
yarns for only $4 + tax a skein. One of the other spots in town that carries it charges $5.49 + tax a skein, so that's a good deal. They knit up quickly, too, but I can only knit with B&L on bamboo needles, it kills my hands and wrists.
