To save this pattern- click on the thumbnails to enlarge them. Then right click on the image, save it as a jpg, then you can print the page in any graphics program. Do this with both pages. I tried to reply to everyone who asked in the comments, but a couple of the e-mail addresses wouldn't work. So I hope everyone sees this. Thanks for all the requests!
This yarn was dyed by my friend Betty, and I don't know if she has any left, but the colors look like a drying cornfield to me- the perfect East River (Eas Triver, in the local parlance) fall colors because while we don't get much red here, we do get plenty of gold and fading green. I decided to knit heavy socks with a sort of *corn* texture (a blend of waffle and basketweave). I call these socks Niblets. They're quick to knit, very cushy and warm, and they'll be comfy in boots, sandals or with your slippers as the weather cools.
