New socks made on my circular sock machine from our beautiful new arrival - Huasco Sock Hand Painted, 433 yards, 75% Superwash Merino Wool/25% Polyamide by Araucaria.  

Thanks to my dad who made my wonderful bobbins for the antique sock machine winder (He made the bases & imbedded old spindles from the Amana Woolen Mill).
