Peppermint Patty Socks Finished!

Yeah, I'm finally finished with the Peppermint Patty socks!
Every four stitches was a cable, which made it take longer...especially with this horribly, splitty, tangly yarn. This is the yarn that hubby had to help me for thirty minutes to untangle and re-ball and make me a mini swift to hold it, just so I could knit them! I will never do this pattern again, nor use this yarn.
Today we're doing school...laundry, changing beds and packing for our trip to Cambria. So excited because we're going to an alpaca farm...I get to go to a new yarn store I haven't been to...get to try some wheels at another store...get to knit/lunch with Alana....lots of fun stuff. I'll try to update the blog if I can pry the laptop from hubby and son!:)

Well, Sissy will like the concept of the socks, but I don't think we'll be giving it a try... Enjoy your day!

The socks look great (nice photo with the peppermints). Inquiring minds want to know what sock yarn it was!

Sorry the yarn was such a pain. The work was definitely worth it!
