First Socks of the Year - Blauband, Size 15


Two FOs in one day! Woohoo!
Yarn: Blauband Special, Color 127, a kelly green
Size: US Men's 15
Stitch pattern: Double Moss, 2x2 rib on cuff
Needles: Addi Turbo 2.0 mm, 24 in.
Construction: Toe-up, short row toe and heel
Technique: 1 sock, 2 circs
Recipient: Husband

That pretty much covers it. These were my first try at 2 circs. The next pair will be 2 on 2. Between the two circs and the Addis, these went much faster. Still takes a while for the size 15s. I do need to make the leg longer and the foot a little shorter next time. I may take out the bind off and add a few inches of ribbing. I do have a third ball of the yarn.
