Thuja Socks & more.........

These are the Thuja socks I had promised to post a picture of.. I am working on the foot of the brother sock, so they should be done soon, I hope. I love this pattern, and hope to try them out with some different yarn in the future. I will be sending these socks to "AKKOL", they will take them to Russia to the orphanage for a graduating young man. I will also be knitting a hat and scarf for him.

I am so surprised that today is my dear son and daughter inlaws 1st anniversary. Sure does not seem like we were in Cincinnati one year ago, Celebrating!

Thank you for your blog comment. I used 72 sts on size 2. I knit from the top down for 8 inches before starting the heel flap on 36 sts. Since dh has quite a high instep, I had 19 slipped sts up each side of the heel. I had dh try the sock on when I thought it was about long enough .... after three tries it was long enough! If you have any more questions, email me. I could also type out the various parts of different patterns that I used in the socks, if you would like.
