“FAMU”

Florida A & M University

I can hardly believe it, but I finished these socks that I started way back on Oct. 31st. There were several projects in between, because of Christmas and baby shower gifts. These socks are for one of my nieces who attends FAMU (green and orange are the school colors.) Now, if it wasn’t because I love my niece, these socks could very well have found themselves incomplete and thrown in the “stash pile.” Why? Two reasons why: 1) these were the first socks I ever tried stranding a second color with, which is awkward at the ends of each row when using the magic loop technique, and I just didn’t do a good job with the yarn tension; 2) first time doing a “toe-up” design, using a figure-8 cast on. I struggled with the heel; after several trys and reading tutorials, I still ended up with a “hole” (I prefer a cuff-down sock pattern). Whew! I’m glad this project is finally completed. I can’t wait to put them in the mail!

Very cute socks. And I see nothing wrong with the heel. I have wanted to learn that short row method as my sock pal socks have them and they are very comfortable. Nice work.

    I've been knitting & crocheting many years, and it is great to see the rise in popularity. Basically,the loves of my life include: knitting, crocheting, being with my family and giving thanks to God for how He's blessed my life, but not necessarily in that order!
