Grandma Crusoe ready in time...
About the socks:
Yarn: Knit Picks Sock Memories in "Grandma" colourway (a birthday gift from Genevieve).
Needles: set of 5 bamboo 2.5mm dpns
Pattern: Resized version of Crusoe since my gauge was nothing like the pattern specs.
Other remarks: I've yet to wash these so I don't know what they'll be like after washing, but right now they are really comfy. Because the stranded stitch has a bit more body, it stays up better than plain old stocking stitch. It's also given me some ideas for a pair of men's socks which are in the planning stage.
