Like a kid on their first day of school, my Anna socks were very excited to come to work today. We took pictures right before we left so the world could see how they looked all washed and ready for the day.
I was surprised how once they took a nice bath they did a good job of staying up on the leg. I may still add some elastic but so far they are holding up well.
I think the Anna socks are having a fun filled day at work. Look at them hard at work on the computer…
Eating Todd’s famous homemade salsa…
And talking on the phone while trying to avoid people walking by and reporting me to HR…
Oh yes, today was a good day for the socks. I think they might come back to work real soon.
Pattern: Anna Socks
Source: Rowan 40
Yarn: Rowan 4-ply soft, Black
Needles: US 2 & 3 double points
Mods: After about 21 centimeters (I feel very British talking all metric) I switched to size 2 needles to avoid bunching at the ankles and to make up for NO shaping.
Notes: The great thing about these is that they really don’t look like I made them. It is my little secret…of course I kind of ruined the secret at work today when I asked everyone if they liked the socks I made. What can I say?…I quite like them.
