I decided to knit a pair of socks as I had not done so in quite a while. This pair was knit using Basic Ribbed Socks by Kate Atherley. I used the Fish Lips Kiss Heel method and I grafted the toes closed. The yarn is Patons North America Kroy Socks 4 Ply in blue striped rag colorway. They fit my husband perfectly.
With the leftover yarn from the two skeins I knit this pair of fingerless mittens which I then gifted to a male colleague who is learning to knit. He loves them. The pattern is Light as AIR Fingerless Gloves by Nathalie O’Shea. It is shortened version as there was limited yarn.
