FO: tweed birthday socks

pattern: my own

yarn: cascade 220 tweed (color 7627)

needle: sz. 5

started: march 14, 2010

finished: march 15, 2010

surprise, surprise....more socks! this cascade yarn is from the gift certificate i got for my birthday. i really love this yarn! it's not the softest yarn but its cozy and durable and will definitely keep my feet nice and warm. i want more tweed yarn! i love the little flecks.

after these socks i cast-on with some fingering weight yarn and sz. 1 needles....they feel like toothpicks! i feel like they are going to snap at any second and the socks don't go nearly as fast, but i figured i needed some socks other than worsted weight. :)

i love how i'm finishing all of these wintery/cold weather socks just as the weather gets amazing! i swear its in the 70s out there. smells like spring!
