Ribbed Socks

No tasty pictures of our Thanksgiving feast, even though it was pretty delicious and no awesome pictures of Russ and my recent trips to Hearst Castle or Arroyo Grande or Morro Bay, even though they were wonderful. Just a picture of some socks that I knit as part of my little knitting group's KAL. My friends are all very competent knitters, but none of them had knit socks before, so we decided that ribbed socks would be the perfect way for them to start out. We took a little trip about a month ago to buy our yarn at Classy Knits in downtown Bakersfield.  Her sock yarn selection was a little small, which is understandable, considering that it has only recently starting get even a little chilly here in Central California. We all found something we liked though, pace ped varigate sock yarn from The Alpaca Yarn Company.  It's beautiful yarn and has a separate little surprise in each hank--solid colored yarn for the heels and toes. It's not cheap, like $24 a skein, but foot comfort is important, after all.
