I finished my socks from my week end project!

A couple of months ago a friend sent me this nice Kaffe Fassett designer yarn from Regia. She said that she never saw any socks in my blog, and socks are so popular to knit these days. So here I started, trying "toe up socks" for the first time.

I know how to make socks, the old fashion way. I grew up with handknitted, wollen socks. My grandma was knitting socks to all her children and grandchildren, and that was a lot, she had 8 children and I do not have the number on all the grandchildren. Her socks was nice and warm and we used them in our rubber boots to keep us warm. Now everyone is making socks with difficult lace and cable patterns, but who will see the nice socks in our boots?
