I am just a gal who loves to knit and spin in my spare time and thought it would be nice to share my projects with everyone.

Best Friend Socks

Last month was my best girlfriend, Deby's birthday and I sent her socks for our traditional birthday sock exchange. This month is my birthday and I got my birthday socks in the mail from her. I was so excited to open my package, I was like a kid at Christmas. Not only did Deby knit birthday socks, but she designed and named the pattern "Best Friend Socks" in honor of our birthday tradition. I was thrilled!! How cool is that!!! She sent me a copy of the pattern that she is offering free on Ravelry and soon on her website . She also sent me the neatest knitting journal to keep track of all my projects. Thank you Deby, I love my birthday package!!!

Mom's Birthday Socks Finished

I finally finished mom's birthday socks and she loved them.

The pattern is Stansfield 196 from "More Sensational Knitted Socks" by Charlene Schurch.
I used size 2 needles and did an Eye of the Partridge heel with garter stitch edge.
