yarn: Panda Wool 46% Bamboo, 43% Wool, 11% Nylon (wonderful to work with, love the color# 9573 Ultramarine) This yarn is squishy and I'm glad I have it in another colorway, so there's a chance I can make myself a pair.
needles: 2.5mm 5 DP
size: even though it's called "Child's First Socks" the pattern is written for adult feet, in this case a women's medium
pattern: Child's First Socks by Nancy Bush from the book "Knitting Vintage Socks, New Twists on Classic Patterns", (wonderful written; the shell pattern was easy to memorize; I did only 5 repeats on the leg, because I worried about having enough yarn - as always)
This pair is going to a friends home. It was pure pleasure to knit it!
I was also gifted by Monica with this gorgeous 100% mohair hand painted yarn. It's 112 g, I don't know the yardage, but it's a lot. I've used a mohair/acrylic blend once for a scarf. Any idea what to knit with mohair? It doesn't matter if I get to it soon or not, because I love to look at it as it is! ;o)
