First sock done. There's a story behind this. These are a surprise for my "bus buddy", the one who went to China on a mission trip last year and brought me back a lovely yellow jade necklace. I had no idea she was going to do that and I was very surprised/pleased. So for a long while I've been trying to think what to knit her, as a thank you.

I began the Bus Socks IV with no particular idea in mind, then one morning she saw the wool and exclaimed how pretty it was. That settled it - the socks were for her. Some hard staring at her feet while on the bus and waiting for it at our mutual stop, led me to believe that she is a size or so smaller than my tootsies; she's a tiny lady. I've endeavoring to make these socks smaller than I would for myself. It's an interesting experience.
