Well, learning how to knit a pair of socks has been on my "bucket list" forever. I took a class in January at my local yarn shop and, voila - socks! I bought this yarn at Purl Soho in New York City. It is a blend of mohair and merino wool from Shi Bui Knits. I finished these just in time because we're kind of moving out of the sock season and into the flip-flop season. But it is cold and rainy in the nation's capital so I am wearing my hand-knit socks today!
