Greenish Knee Socks for the Nervous Knitter
(That would be me, nervous not about the knitting but about life outside of knitting)

Pattern notes:
Yarn: Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock, Camouflage color (215 yds, 2 oz); 1 skein for each sock (with not a lot left over).
Needles: 4 dpn size 2 (for cuff and leg), 5 dpn size 1 (for heel and foot)
Gauge: 7 1/2 sts and 11 rows = 1” with size 2 needle.

To fit a foot that wears a size 8 1/2 shoe. Alter the length from heel to toe for a different size foot. Though if you’re going to make it longer you will need more yarn.

Basic Pattern:
Cast on with size 2 needle 64 sts. Work 2” of 2x2 rib (about 22 rows).
Work St st until pieces measures 14 1/2” from cast on edge (about 138 rows in St st).
Change to size 1 needle to work heel and foot. Work short row heel on 32 sts on needles 1 and 2 for left sock and needles 3 and 4 for right sock.
Work 7” of St st from the heel (about 85 rows). Then, work the short row toe on 32 sts with same needles as heel sts.
Graft (32) toe sts to top of (32) foot sts.

Weave in ends, put on socks and party.

That was FAST--you only started the second sock on Sunday. GREASE LIGHTNING is what I am going to nick-name you! Edna
