Ta daaaa! Here they are...Completed ribbed socks in Schaefer Anne. I made my DH try them on...oh they looked great. "Too Girly." Cripes. Well, I think it's amazing that they fit the both of us. And they surely aren't too girly for this old lady.

Two nights in a row now, the temp has gone below 70 degrees F. THAT means, one of these days, I'll be able to actually WEAR a pair of these new socks that I've knit this summer. WHOO HOO!

I have been looking for some really pointy needles, and yours look just right. Would you mind telling me what brand they are?

Robin...the needles are the ubiquitous susan bates silvalume dpn's. These needles came as a "sock set" of 4 sizes: 1.5mm, 1.75mm, 2.0mm, and 2.25mm. These socks were knit on the 2.25mm or size 1 needles.

Knitman...thanks so much! They're very cozy socks...I was going for a "thermal" design...and I got it!

I will be watching for that color, love it. Think maybe 7 or 8 days so far this year I haven't worn my woolie socks, this morning temp was 24°, had a sweater on until noon.
