My first pair of regular ol’ socks done & dusted !
:: claps wildly ::
And now I think I’ll start another pair just the same as I finished, in lavendar heathered yarn, and they will be for my nieces’ mom.
Sock Pattern : “Classic Socks” in “Folk Socks” by Nancy Bush
Yarn : 75% Superwash Merino/25% Nylon, in fingering weight
Find on Ravelry.
Wow, congratulations! They look very warm and comfortable.
Thanks Andy … and they are !!!
Just exquisit! That color is wonderful. I love the basic sock! Nothing says love like a home knit , sock hugged foot.
I can’t believe I’ve lived this long, well, knitted this long… and never done it !!! I am a new knitter indeed !
A fine looking sock – a job well done.
You are a real sock knitter now – you will soon be doing what my ma used to, when asked what was on the pins
‘Well what’s that then?’
‘Oh, just socks for your dad’.
Oh Thank You Lizzi, I’ll say just the same thing… I’ll quote your ma from now on. They took a while, but now that I have them done, I think they’ll go a little bit faster each time.
Beautiful socks! I am envious. I have yet to finish a pair. Those are a lovely blue.
The ones I just finished are a dusty grey (though I admit , the photo somehow gives them a blue tint), and you know , being a first pair of *just socks*… it was pretty easy ! I’m now starting the lavendar ones, for my sister-in-law. Martha , you could sooo do it !!! C’mon !!
Swell, sista. Welcome to the world of sock wonders…the sock knitter 😀 Love the textures…sure show off that beautiful dusty well. Can’t wait to see the lavender knit up.
Thank you Sarah !!! I am rather proud of myself, even over a simple of a thing which are socks.
That’s the best. Find happiness in the simplest thing. You are the happiest person.
