Mom's Socks

Pattern: Vinnland
Yarn: Kraemer Yarn's Saucon Sock in lime

I bought this yarn on March 17 when my LYS had a 20% off all green yarn sale for St. Patrick's Day. My mom's birthday is the 18th, so these were designated for her.

The bind off in the pattern was not giving enough to get over a heel, so I tried Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off. It worked well and I'll probably use it when the sewn bind off is called for because I won't have to get out a tapestry needle for it.

I finished them in time to get them out for Mother's Day. I mailed them out yesterday morning and paid extra for 2 day arrival, so I'm hoping she'll get them Saturday.
