FO: Emergency socks

The emergency socks have been gifted, so now I can talk about them.

Socks 2

Yarn: ArtYarns Ultramerino 8, less than 1 skein
Needles: US 4 Options
Pattern: My own. Cast on 36 sts, knit 4 rows. Knit 1 row of yo/k2tog, then knit another 4 rows. Tack down the picot by knitting one stitch on the needle together with one from the cast-on edge. The yo/k2tog row makes the jaggies. I have also heard it called cat's tooth. Then I knit another 14 rounds, did a basic heel flap heel on 18 stitches, and a basic toe. As simple as they can get.

I am surprised, however, at how much they match. The banding is almost identical, and I didn't even try to match them:


Also, Fee says "Don't I have the prettiest fur ever??"

The emergency socks are beautiful! (Any knitter will understand how socks can be "emergencies"!)

I love the picot edge and the yarn - and that kitty has the most beautiful eyes!

Great minds think alike - I just used that same colorway in their super merino for a baby blanket. Such cheery colors! I love the cord you tied the socks with - how did you do that?
