New Socks on thier way to the Czech Republic

Here is the very first pair of socks designed by Moi! They are a gift for the daughter-n-law of a very close friend. Jan saw me knitting in Church, yes I knit everywhere I go...lol, and asked if I would knit a pair for her daughter-n-law, Adrianne. Do you think I would turn down an opportunity like that? Nope! The pattern is called Adrianne's Life and is knitted in Louet's Gems yarn in French Blue on size 1 circ needles. They are 100% wool, but machine washable an dryable. Adrianne and Billy Crossan are missionaries in the Czech Republic, where it is extremely cold. They just moved into a new home and have made the choice not to wear shoes inside the house, so these socks will be perfect for her to wear inside or out.

I ran the pattern down the front only, leaving the back in stockinette stitch to blend from cuff through the heel and down. I also ran the pattern down into the toe decreases. I love the look of it.

There is a new pattern in the works for one of the sock groups I belong to. It is for the month of December and will be called "Blue Snow." I already have the chart made and the pattern written. I should get the yarn tomorrow, have my needles in my bag and will be anxious to get them started.
