Perfect Pair

I took the Misti Alpaca Sport that I got in the mail and knitted a fabulous pair of socks today on the Passap. I didn't make a single mistake on either one. I took it nice and slow. Took me two hours to finish them. They are beautiful and perfect. I love them.

I will work on the mathematics of the pattern so that I will be able to make them for anyone with their measurements. I still need to get the right yarn though for the machine. The Misti Sport is about 1490 yards per pounds, just a little thick. The other yarn I have is 5,000 yards per pound and with it doubled it is still too thin. So I need something about 1,800 to 2,000 yards per pound. I will keep looking! I am excited about this pair!
