A nice pretty little pair of socks I’ve been working on here and there while knit-walking the mountain. Pretty Little Things were so much fun to make ! I managed to make a knitted hemmed folded cuff, nearly three inches wide, lined, knitted back into the work, added a darling picot edge, and one tiny wee peerie to make it just pretty enough !
Did I say pretty? I might add plain, basic, sturdy, utilitarian, old-fashioned looking, and as sleek as porpoises because there’s no ribbing. Oh, and they are very, very warm !
The ‘legs’ are two layers thick of stockinette stitch, lined, so they actually hug my ankles snugly.
I used stash yarn of fine fingering 75% Superwash Merino/ 25% nylon sock yarn, with US#0 (2mm) needles, and the fabric is thick & dense, though very soft. I am sure they will wear very well. Anyway, I think they are different, and I’m quite taken with them !
You can bet on a pattern for these popping up here sometime soon , so hang around !
