Azya's Birthday and Christmas socks

Azya, my now 13 Year old! received some money for her Birthday in November, and bought this Panda cotton for me to make her a pair of socks.They finally did turn out pretty nice but,the yarn was a bear to work with.It split really bad and often on top of that, and I had to go through 3 patterns and sets of needles before I could get even close to guage!! I finally settled on 2.5 bamboo dlps. and the bamboo stitch pattern. here they are I gave them to he in her new purse on Christmas morning.

last yarn crawl of 2007

this first yarn is for a pair of ankle socks for my boss,it is hard to find peach sock yarn ! this is cotton twist from berroco and i imagine it will be like working wth panda cotton! which I did not like at all we will see

this encore by plymouth will become a pair of mittens for a coworker
this jitterbug will become socks for me I have never knit with this and am very excited about using it!! the picture does not do it justice!!
