New Socks for ?? It's a surprise...

This was a new yarn I spotted last week at my local Mary Maxim & it was very reasonably priced - so it came home with me & I knew right then that it was destined for my daughter's upcoming July birthday. Before that point I wasn't sure what I would do for her Bday.

The socks were knit on 2 circular Addi 2.5mm turbo needles using Crazy Toes & Heels top down method. I might have done one other pair this way, but I don't recall. My DD has very slender feet, so she likes my home made socks when I make them for her.

The yarn is Serenity Sock Weight by Premier Yarns. Deborah Norville Collection. The colour in the photograph is a bit off. The darker blue is a mid denim blue, turquoise blue & there is a sparkle of white that doesn't show up at all. Just the colour combination that I would love for myself.

This yarn is 50% merino superwash wool, 25% bamboo, 25% nylon.

I started these on the 23rd June. Today is the 30th. That the quickest I have finished anything in quite awhile. So I am quite pleased.
