Soucy: "A basic stocking in worsted weight yarn. Can be embellished or not as you choose. Great for using leftover yarn, but stunning in mohair, angora, or a novelty yarn! Worked on a 16 inch circular and double point needles for the heel and toe. Gauge is 18 sts to 4 inches. Tweed yarns are Kraemer Yarns Tatamy Tweed worsted weight, and the solid colors are O-wool by the Vermont Organic Yarn Company."
(Really, what else do you need? Each member of the family can gussy these up to their individual tastes, and they make fabulous gifts too-- Ed.)
