I am working on socks for my cousin's daughter who is a music education major at Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam. In the winter, Potsdam gets to be pretty cold. I am knitting a 64 stitch plain sock with a slip stitch heel and traditional shaping. The yarn I am using is Patons Kroy Socks Stripes in the Bronzed Berry Stripes colorway. I am almost to the toe of the first sock.
