Last night I watched Close Encounters of the Third Kind with my nephew who is under the impression that "old" movies are not very good. I'm trying to dispel that fallacy! He enjoyed the movie as did I. I remember seeing it the FIRST time when I was in college. I believe it was popular around the time that ET and the first STAR WARS came out. Am I really that old? To me it seems like only yesterday.
Isn't it a joy to knit with fun colors? These Koigu socks were a joy to knit as I felt myself just melting into the scrumptious colors. The pattern is OAK RIBBED SOCKS from Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush. I modified the heel to a standard square heel since I am not overly fond of French heels. I like the way the round toe was knit in this pattern. I used 2.5mm needles and could probably have gone with a 2.25mm. All in all I am pleased with the end product for afterall, it is always nice to have a new pair of socks!
