Becuase Hookers Don't Share Needles

Happy Birthday Mom!!!
I have finally finished my brithday present for my mother and her birthday isn't until Monday so I can put them in the mail Monday and she will get them only two days late! I used this sock yarn I found in Berlin to make these socks. The yarn is called Meilenweit Cotton Fantasy and is 45% Cotton, 42% Virgin wool, and 13% Polyamide. It is made by Lana Grossa in Italy (I think the label is in German.

The socks were made using the Origami Turkish Sock pattern found at http://cerdeb.googlepages.com/. These socks are cool because you use actual foot measurements to size your sock then constructed it in a flat shape then fold it together to make the sock. Its kinda amazing how you go from a crazy shape to a sock in a few minutes. Also since it is worked in back and forth rows I think it is easier than working in the round becuase I hate all the concentration needed ot work in the round.
