I don’t know why this yarn is called Chili/Chile… but I find it funny that I cast on these socks on Cinco de Mayo! :)

Using pattern on back of label which appears to be identical to “Silky Soft Socks” pattern by Premier Yarns. Very nice soft yarn.

Decided to do short row heel (page 56 from book “Socks a la Carte”). Socks seem a tad loose.

Socks too big for me. Will give to mother-in-law who says she’s been suffering from swollen ankles and her socks are too tight/uncomfortable! :)
