these ankle socks!

Friday, December 09, 2016

Okay, friends.  These ankle socks are my new favorite!  I was drawn to them because it calls for worsted weight yarn.  And because I thought it would be a great sock to wear with boots.  I'm not a fan of pulling a sock up over my jean before I put on my boots.  So, I thought these would be a great solution.  Also, using a size 5 needle, along with an inexpensive machine washable and dryable yarn?  IN!
When I started them, they were for me.  However, I have since then thought of the perfect person to gift them to.  You can probably whip up a pair before Christmas.  I promise!  They go fast.  Go get some yarn today! (It's on sale!) I'll be casting on this weekend for another pair.  Going to do the toe, heel and ribbing in a contrasting color.

Pattern:  Home Ankle Socks
Yarn:  Lion Brand Wool-Ease 1 ball

  6. New product development refers to the process of launching a new product in the market. This process involves designing, manufacturing and introducing the product. Students studying management courses have to become well-acquainted with each and every aspect of this field. They are assigned to draft academic papers on this subject as well. Universities especially those situated in Canada set a stringent standard for assignments. It is quite difficult for pupils to meet that standard. That is why we provide NPD Writing Help canada in Canada.
