I am getting into a great rhythm of knit-trekking, and socks are best knit-trekking project there is. I talk about this in all posts labeled Footsteps, which is fast becoming my most posted category and and is all about socks knitted while walking… or mostly walking.
The thing is, while getting more fit from all of this perpetual walking, I am knitting socks galore! I would like to start a local “Knit Fit” group, but way up here on the mountain, I am resolved to going at it solo. Though I am curious, are there any other knit-trekkers out there? If so, please speak up.
These socks were meant to be for myself, but in trying to use up all of the 53 grams of left-over sock yarn I had, wanting to use exactly what I had, no more, no less, and ripping back several times if necessary to knit either more, or less (only knitters really understand that). In this case I knit the foot a smidge too long, and so I suppose they will fit Jeff’s daughter’s feet just perfectly.
By the way, these socks in progress are seen in the last post at the peak !
Pattern: my own Wild Wool Trail Socks ( Plain Sock, with heel worked in heel stitch, and with short leg)
Yarn: 53 grams of Malabrigo Sock, in color Aguas.
Details on Ravelry HERE.
Casting on now for some socks quite colorful, which you will see finished very shortly I am confident, probably about 15 miles from now I will be posting!
Hope you are all enjoying the last day in March, here the intense wind seems to have subsided. Now it’s time for insect season!
She lucked out!
Yeah…looks like it! 😉 xx
I love the short version Wild Wool Trail Socks. Jeff’s daughter is very lucky to get such a lovely pair of socks.
The yarn choice for your next pair of socks is pretty. Enjoy your knit-trekking.. 🙂
Thanks Wen, as for the forthcoming pair of socks, I really love the hand dyed Ripples Craft yarn. It ended up in my hands gifted through someone twice! At first I though the color variegation was far too wild, but they’re knitting up to be super interesting, especially with the complimenting blue contrast for cuff, heel, and toe!
