crochet day!

Yesterday was crochet day at my house! I greatly enjoyed working on these projects for a friend. I tried to enlarge the first picture, but it was very fuzzy, so I suppose you'll have to try zooming in on it for a closer look...  :)

Red Socks!

I finished a pair of red socks today for a friend/former coworker of my mom's. The yarn is from the Deborah Norville collection, called Serenity Garden Yarn. It is 100% Oralon microfiber in Hibiscus. I used the Upsidedowners (Toe-Ups) pattern from Patons Classics Happy Feet. Self-striping yarn is fun to work with; one never knows exactly how the striping will come out!
