On the Needles November 23, 2012

I was unable to post earlier as the internet was not available here where we are spending the week.  We are lucky to be in Puerto Penasco, Mexico for the holiday.  The weather here is great and we have lots of friends, both Americans and locals.  We spent the holiday with our friends, Bill and Mary and 4 of their grown children and spouses.  We had a great dinner and an even greater time with our friends.

I finished the Malabrigo socks in the SKYP pattern for my friend.  This photos is a pretty accurate color  representation.

I also began these ZigZags sock pattern by Elaine Anderson, free on Ravelry.  I first saw this pattern done on Justquiltin with Denise Russart.  Although I'm using the same number of stitches, this is a larger sock then I am used to knitting but since it is for a friend 
I am usual doing.  But it is for a friend 
who has a larger foot them me, I think it will work just fine.  The pattern has 5 different rows but they are pretty 
to remember.  
This yarn is made in Romania for Pylmouth Yarn, Stiletto, color #200.  It is interesting to see 
all the foreign places that yarn is made.  This yarn has some silver flecks in it.  

Enjoy everyone's posts on Patchwork Times.
