Five pair!

These were giftie socks, started in August and done by Thanksgiving. No one read blogs, so I *could* have posted sooner, and in fact had every intention of doing so, but the picture sat on my camera until last night!so, without further ado, I give you five pair:
From left to right
  • Louet Gems Sport in Linen, Cat Bordhi's Riverbed Master pattern, for the FIL's size 9 feet
  • Louet Gems Fingering in Champagne, Cat Bordhi's Cedar Master Pattern, for Mom's size 8 feet
  • Louet Gems Fingering in Teal, Beaded rib with short row heel, for the MIL's size 5s
  • Louet Gems sport in Charcoal, Cedar Master pattern again, for grandpa's size 11s (!!)
  • Lang Jawoll Color in faded lime, Embossed leaves pattern, for grandma's size 7s
I learned quite a bit making these. The Embossed leaves were the first, and I used the Italian Tubular cast on, which I plan on using again and again. It's fiddly, both to learn and use, but it looks so professional and doesn't bind AT ALL. Plus? Using Cat Bordhi's new book is so much fun! Really makes you think about how the sock can be put together. And they feel heavenly, what with the heel flap that doesn't need stitches picked up. And either of the cuff downs feel really nice on the ankle, too!
So, that makes eight pair completed for me this year. Not one every two months, but at least I met the total count! (I'm not counting the pair of Sockotta mit Bambou that I made over Thanksgiving and I can't locate in the laundry to photograph!) Thanks for the KAL! I had fun everyone!

Down to the Wire Christmas Socks

A special bonus edition of the December socks. (A Christmas special, even.) I finished these in the wee hours of Christmas morning. Giant men's socks do tend to go on forever and ever...

I did these with the magic loop (US size 3 needles, I think) and two entire skeins of Regia Color 4-ply yarn.

Sundara Basketweave Socks

The first of (hopefully) several socks for December. (Specifically, December 25th.) These are the Basketweave socks from Sensational Knitted socks. The yarn is Sundara Sock yarn in Marina over Icicles from her permanent collection. The yarn is really soft and her colors are lovely. I used the magic loop method for these. I don't think I like it as much for thin yarns, even though I find it appealing in concept.

Cable Twist Socks for December

Twist socks

You can't see it because I didn't get a good enough side photo but the heel flap is also green. These are for me and they keep my feet toasty! The only thing I wish I had done differently is make the entire toe part out of green. I like this pattern it's easy to get the rhythm of it. I'm sure to make more. I still have some sweater yarn and other worsted yarn that needs using up.

Tiny Fixation Sock

I recently picked up the keychain sock blocker from the Loopy Ewe, and it came with a pattern for a little sock to fit the blocker (of course). Naturally, I had to make the sock. It was adorable (though I did decide to modify the pattern little to use 18 stitches around instead of 16). It was also a very quick knit, so I made a couple more.

I am thinking that some of the people I wanted to make Christmas socks for may get little placeholder socks while I finish their actual socks (since I want to make more pairs than I have time for). I am also considering making a little sock souvenir from each pair for myself, but perhaps that is too crazed.

Secret Pal Socks

I knit these socks for my last gift package to my secret pal.

Pattern: Apple Harvest Socks from Northern Sunshine Designs
Yarn: SnapDragon from White Willow Market
Size: 11 1/2 US shoe size
Modificatons: Casted on 84 stitches and added k1p1 to heel flap
Start: November 3, 2oo7
Finish: November 27, 2007

Sockotta Shortrows

I finally finished another pair of socks. I got stalled on the short rows so these lingered for a while. I finally decided to crack the short rowed heel code and didn't do too bad. I followed the instructions from More Sensations Socks.

First Toe-Ups

Sockotta most of the skein
32" US1/2.25mm circ needles

I did lots of first for this sock:
First short rowed heel
First toe up
First time using magic loop for socks - Instead of doing two at a time on one circ, I used two circs one on each.

November Socks

Another pair of Christmas socks finished. If only Christmas were six months away, rather than one, I might finish all the socks I'd hoped to finish.

These are Nancy Bush's Gentleman's Socks with Lozenge Pattern from Knitting Vintage Socks. The yarn is from Fearless Fibers in smoke. Needles were US size 0.

FO: Apple Harvest Socks

Apple Harvest Socks
Yarn: White Willow Market's Superwash Supersoft fingering weight merino in Prairie Grass colorway
Size: 8 wide
Modifications: I casted on 72 stitches instead of 60 and added a few k1p1 stitches to the heel.
Start: October 17, 2007
Finished: November 3, 2007

This pattern was easy to knit. I'm making it my quick and easy female go to sock pattern.

October Socks

Made from Fearless Fibers sock yarn in Infatuation, with the heels and toes out of Lorna's Laces in Manzanita.

(More Christmas socks finished, hooray!)

Thursday, October 18, 2007


I have finally finished a pair of socks. Since starting them MONTHS ago, I got pregnant and then really sick. Now, I am in my 5th month and hopefully knitting again. I wish I had a nice summary that included the type of yarn, but I don't know where the ball band is. Okay, but the big news is I finished a pair of socks. They are for by son, who is quite pleased with them. I ribbed the leg this time and they stay up a lot better than the last pair I knit for him. Sorry I've been so silent. I hope I am back in the game.

Happy knitting.

Thuja Socks for my bubba

Pattern: Thuja Socks by Bobby Zeigler
Yarn: Fearless Fibers Thoroughbred Superwash Sock Yarn (550yards per skein)
Size: 13 wide
Modifications: I used fingering weight yarn instead of the DK weight that's in the pattern
Start: September 20, 2007
Finish: October 17, 2007

The simple, classic Thuja socks are a great pattern for men's socks. The socks are a size 13 wide. I had 1 yard left of the yarn when I was done.

September Socks

I actually didn't finish these until October 1, but there was a small delay due to running out of yarn. (I had enough for a pair for me, but not for a pair for a man with wide feet oops.) Fortunately one sock got made out of each, so there's no issue with dye lots.

This is my third pair of Christmas socks, and I have a fourth nearly done. It's going to be tight though.

Monday, October 1, 2007

Finally a pair of socks

I'm way behind on posting these, but here are my Move Your Fanny Socks from done in Tofutsies. This is a great pattern for people with narrow feet. I remember the good old days when I was able to finish a pair a month. Now I'm lucky if it's every two months :(

Twist & Shout Socks

Finally after almost 2 months of knitting, ripping, reknitting and a bout of second sock syndrome, I'm done with the Twist & Shout Socks. It was the first time I knitted lace socks and used a short row heel.

Pattern: Twist & Shout Socks by Amy King
Yarn: White Willow Superwash Sock Yarn in Medicine Woman colorway
Size: Women's 8 medium
Needles: US 1 on 2 Addi Turbo circs
Modifications: 68 stitch cuff 1.5 inches, 66 stitch leg and 72 stitch heel and foot, standard toe decreases
Start: July 23, 2007
Finished: today!!!

If you want to read more about me knitting these socks, go to my blog.

August Socks

Sideways Socks Supreme

Finally finished the Sideways Socks out of Cascade fixation. They make thick socks, but the stretchiness really helps this style of socks fit right.

Thanks to a tripod and a swiveling LCD monitor on my camera, I was able to take this picture of myself in the socks. (I am sitting in a chair, not balancing on my toes.)

Saturday, August 18, 2007


I finished the first pair of socks that I'm gifting to myself :-)

Jaywalkers! This is also the first sock pattern I've followed that wasn't plain stockinette or ribbing. I think I am going to go onto bigger better sock patterns now.

Growing Toward the Sun

Yarn: Fleece Artist "Autumn" from my Practically Perfect Secret Pal

Pattern: Toe-up Beaded Rib from "Sensational Knitted Socks"

Comments: this was my first toe-up and my first short row toe/heel. Not certain I'm a fan of this way round. It's also the first time I've split a ball in two and seen how far I can knit - so these socks are a good 8cm/3 inches longer than I typically make my socks. I think I might like them the shorter length, but we'll see what wearing them teaches me.

Here's a picture of both socks with my feet firmly on the ground.

I lost my mojo for a while and now I'm behind my loose 'one pair per month' plan to get the 12 pairs knitted. I'd better catch up. Good think I'm so enamored with the new Bellatrix socks pattern.

Friday, August 10, 2007

Finally photo-d

These socks.
Pattern: Undulating Rib socks from the Favorite Socks book
Yarn: Woollyboully in the Red Robin colorway
Needles: Size 2 & 3 (I probably should have used 2s and 1s)

Fun pattern and I loved the yarn colors.

Right now I'm working another pair from Favorite Socks and a pair for my husband in a worsted weight yarn (KP Swish). The worsted weight one are going fast - love that!

Monday, August 6, 2007

next pair(s) down

This is my newest pair (that actually fit!!) They're ONLine Beach Color, but I don't remember the color number (again. Call me lazy, it would fit.) Also? Another pair of toddler socks from the leftovers. Just imagine the same thing, with wider color repeats, on a very fast little girl.

July Socks

I finally finished another pair of socks. I had been trying to get a pair done a month but it hasn't worked that way lately. I made them with Seacoast Yarns Royalty colorway, using the Garter Stitch Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks on No. 1 Knitpicks circulars.
I've been silent for a bit, but I have (!!) two pairs to show off!
Toddler socks for my daughter. I swore I wouldn't make her socks til she stopped growing, but that was before I found out how fast these little things are to pop out! It only took me four hours to make the pair, weaving in the ends and everything!
Yarn - ONline Walking Colors #848
Size - Toddler
Needle - ML on size 1 addi turbo
Started - yesterday
Finished - today!!!

Second -
This is the first pair I've every made for myself that actually fit! It's a variation of the Gentlemen's Rib pattern from Knitting Vintage Socks (I didn't have the book on hand and remembered it wrong...) Done in Paton's Kroy Sock, but I don't remember the color offhand, and toddlers and husbands are calling for dinner, so that's all you get!

That makes two whole pairs so far, unless single socks can combine into mismatched pairs, which would make four.....

Charade Socks

Hi, I'm Cheryl and this is my first of many FO for this KAL. I learned to knit in October 2006. In January of this year I learn to knit cuff down socks by reading Sensational Knitted Socks and looking at the Nenah Galati's Sock I dvd.

Let's call this pair my April pair of socks....
Yarn: Prince of Tides, Unwind Yarn Co.
Needles: Addi Turbo US 1
Pattern: Charade Socks, a herringbone pattern
Modificatons: none <---- beginner mistake (let's hope they fit who I'm giving them to)
Started: July 1,2007
Finished: July 23, 2007

Anniversary Socks

I have finished the first of (hopefully) several pairs of Christmas present socks. (I know Christmas is half a year away, but I have notions of making perhaps half a dozen pairs.) Now, will I be good and finish one of my other partly complete pairs before starting a new pair. Hmm...

This pattern was pretty straightforward, though I wound up doing a more normal toe with a Kitchner stitch graft rather than the one in the pattern. Hopefully my mom will like them.

Yarn is Fearless Fibers Superwash Sock yarn in the "Infatuation" colorway.

Finished and Unfinished Socks

Remember my first post about my current socks projects? I had five pairs in progress then, exactly three months ago. Well, since then I have...

...finished two of the five unfinished pairs
...frogged two pairs for new patterns, resulting in one an entire sock (Sideways Sock Supreme from Socks, Socks, Socks and about two inches of the Bed Sock from Knitting Vintage Socks
...started and finished a whole new pair for which I didn't even have yarn when this picture was taken
...turned the heel on the last pair, but didn't finish it.
...started another new pair (the Anniversary Socks from Favorite Socks) with some other new yarn
...made a mate for a sock that lots its mate almost ten years ago

I guess I still have a problem, but at least now I only have four pairs on needles.

Wednesday, July 11, 2007

Finally, another pair!

I am so behind on my sock knitting and this blog! Looking forward to checking out all your socks, now that I have some to share. I have another pair finished too - just need to weave in the ends.

Pattern: Yarnover Cable (I think) from Sensational Knitted Socks
Yarn: Tofutsies in 728 Three Feet Short Colorway
Needles: Crystal Palace Size 2 DPNS
Notes: eh. I wasn't crazy about the Tofutsies. It's really soft, but splitty and I probably should have knitted on 1s instead of 2s like the company suggested. This was my first pair of toe-up socks and my first short row heels and my "purl 3 togethers through the back loops" look like crap, especially in this splitty yarn. I also made them too short (which is not the yarn's fault, of course). The yardage was great though and I probably have enough left over for another pair of small socks.

Opal Tree Frog Socks

I didn't think these would ever be done. I made them for my 11 yr. old son. He chose the yarn and I hadn't realized how tiny Opal Rainforest was. I was seriously concerned his feet were growing faster than I was knitting.

Yarn - Opal Rainforest, Tree Frog
Needles - KnitPicks size 0
Pattern - 84 stitches, toe up, heel flap, with 2x2 rib, magic loop

He loves the socks and if it weren't 97 degrees, he'd probably wear them now. I'm happy with how they turned out, but I wouldn't chose this yarn again!

My First Pair with the KAL


I just joined the KAL a few days ago, and I was already working on these, but just finished them today:

Very happy that they're done and that I actually knit the second one too, hehe. My attention tends to wander from project to project, but I tried to stay focussed and it got me a complete pair :-)

June Socks that won a prize!

I didn't do much sock knitting this month at all. I've been vacationing with my daughter and grandbaby in Indy. But, I did sign up for a knit-off the last weekend I was there. We didn't really have any plans and I figured that I could give the socks to my daughter as a gift when I finished. So, started knitting on Friday afternoon and finished on Sunday afternoon. I spent a lot of time knitting, but did make dinner (yummy chicken burritos with red chili sauce) on Friday and we went out for lunch on Saturday. I really didn't think that I had a shot to be the first finished, as the first knit-off (this one was to defend the team title!) was won by a lady who knit a pair in 12 (or was it 14) hours straight! Without further ado, Clementine by Momma Monkey from Socktopia. You can click on the picture to get the yarn info.

new additions

My apologies--I got behind on a lot of other things and have been neglecting the KAL administrative stuff. I had a bunch of people email asking to join that I didn't get around to adding until today. I think I have everyone added that requested it--please let me know if you have asked to join and didn't receive notification from blogger that you now have permissions on this KAL today.

I finally finished a pair for myself!

does six months count as 'slow-poke'? ;)

Erde Austermann Jaywalkers

I finally finished the second pair of Jaywalkers (after making a pair and a half of sideways-ish socks in the middle). Here they are. I love the feel of the Austermann yarn and wish it also came in solid colors.

Summer Socks

These are the socks from The Loopy Ewe sock club. The yarn is a merino/bamboo/nylon blend from All Things Heather in the colorway called skinny dipping. The pattern is summerfield from Wildhorse Farm designs. I used size 1 DPN's and followed the pattern exactly. These are great for summer because the bamboo makes them feel cooler then pure wool. I actually finished two pairs of socks in I guess I'm getting faster at knitting them. That's a really good thing because I have a LOT of sock yarn.

Shipwreck Socks

I was motivated to finish these socks for my mother's birthday today. I loved knitting with this yarn and can't wait to find more of it. It's a bamboo, wool, and nylon blend and it felt fabulous sliding through my fingers.

Yarn - Yarn Love in the Shipwreck colorway bought from The Loopy Ewe
Pattern - Plain
Needles - KnitPicks size 2 32' circular
Method - toe up, one at a time, heel flap, Magic Loop

When Mom received the socks today, she said she needed a pair of brown or tan Crocs for the perfect look.

Just in time

for the end of May, a finished pair of socks that were started and completed in this month. Which is pretty good for me.

really liked the pattern when I saw it as a serial pattern on Susan's blog. The fingering weight pattern is available through membership to the Six Sox Knitalong.

Pattern: Horcrux socks
Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug in the Castagna colorway
Project date: May 2, 2007 through May 24, 2007
Mods: none, I was a bit concerned that the pattern called for 60 or 70 stitches, but because the pattern utilizes a k3,p2 ribbing, the socks are quite stretchy. And it fits just fine. The only I would have done differently is the heel and the heel flap. In fact, on the second sock, I did change the heel because I didn't like how the first turned out. The pattern uses a stockinette heel flap which I didn't care for, but that's a matter of personal preference. The Dutch heel didn't fit my foot properly, but it's wearable. It may be just fine for others.

The yarn was really nice to work, although I was a bit worried about the yardage. Since these socks are relatively short, it worked just fine and I still had a bit of yardage left over. I could have easily made them at least 1 inch taller, but that's again a personal preference. I would think this pattern would be good for those yarns with low yardage, such a Koigu or Colinette. I followed the pattern initially b/c I really didn't think about how tall it was, but it's not too short, but I'd prefer it be a *smidge* taller.

Pair #3:French Socks

These are the most comfortable pair of socks I've knit for myself thus far, although I wouldn't have known it by the way the pattern looks. It's so stretchy though, and fits perfectly. This project did have it's share of headaches though. I don't think I really blogged about it, but I had to knit the toe on one of the socks 5 times, and twice on the other. This has never happened to me before. Maybe I'm distracted, maybe my row gauge is WAY off, but in the end, I knit 4 extra pattern repeats, didn't knit any of the 4 plain rows before the toe decreases, and now they fit like a dream. Just like that. (BTW, my feet are size 8-1/2, so similarly sized knitters, be forewarned.)

Let's take a little closer look at that pattern:
This picture is exactly true to color -- the one above is just a bit dark.


Pattern: Child's French Sock from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush
Yarn: Lorna's Laces in Grapevine
Needles: Susan Bates, aluminum DPN's, set of 4
Notes: 5 extra pattern repeats, for a total of 25 from cuff to toe. Did not knit the 4 plain rows between last pattern rep and decreases for toe.

Pepto Pink!

Pattern: Broadripple from Knitty
Yarn: Cascade Fixation in an alarmingly pink colorway
Needles: Lantern Moon Size 3 Blond DPNS
Notes: Not crazy about the pattern when knit up. Really not a fan of the yarn. I screwed up the kitchenering of the last toe and had to rip out and redo - think that is why the one sock has a shorter toe - I must have ripped back too far. But they're done!

Next up: Second sock of my daughter's Tofutsies. Then something for me either with the Koigu I got at Maryland Sheep and Wool or my new yarn.


I didn't actually do sock-socks, but these were fun. :)

Opal Hundertwasser Socks

Sideway Sock and The Magic Loop

I finished off my Opal Hundertwasser Socks last night, in a miss matching pair in the style of the socks on the label. The first sock (right one in the pair) was a sideways sock using something like the pattern on the inside of the label as I mention in my previous post. I think I overdid it on the short rows on the sideways sock, though and the foot is just plain too long. It makes for a very slouchy, floppy looking sock, especially next to the lean, well fitting "normal" sock. The sideways sock looks a little bit better on my feet (below), but still isn't great. I ran across someone's discussion of her attempts to devise a better sideways sock, and so perhaps I will wait and see what her outcome is and reknit the sideways one. I'm going to track down a copy of Socks, Socks, Socks too and see what that take on the sideways sock is.

The second sock (left side of first picture) was just a plain sock made using the Magic Loop technique. I'm don't I'm a convert yet, but I see some benefits. I used 32" (80cm) size three Addi turbos. They are smooth enough that you can knit pretty fast (it was a pretty simple pattern too), but I found I would occasionally accidentally pull my needle right out of the stitches when there were only one or two on the needle. The other thing I didn't like was that I had to knit the first and last couple of stitches of each needle pretty tightly to keep ladder from forming. Plus, I am kind of a sucker for the way really nice wooden needles feel; they're just so luxurious.

But there, socks for May. (And sock blockers too!)

My Socks for May

I finished my May socks and my 2nd pair of knit socks so far. I love the colors of these but this yarn is fiddly. I just might up my needle size but I do like a tighter gauge in socks to make the knitting easier I hope and 'cause the socks are a bit snug.


yarn: Gedifra Fashion Trend Sportivo, color #5768
needles: #1 dpns
method: cuff down sock

I'm still trying to get the hang of toe grafting and still not quite succeeding.

Now I'm off to check out all the other great socks and figure out which pair to make next.

Green socks

I just completed these, and they are really comfortable. The yarn is Austermann Step color 3, and the pattern is the seed-stitch rib from More Sensational Knitted Socks. I did them toe-up using a provisional cast on and a short-row heel. I was planning to take a break from sock knitting and actually make a sweater, but now I'm feeling edgy about not having a pair of socks on the needles. Maybe I will break my own rule and work on 2 projects at horrible that would be!

Sunday, May 13, 2007

Yay! Finally! I finished MY pair of Fanny socks from Socktopia!

Monday, May 7, 2007

Michigan Socks

This pair knitted up quickly and are nice and thick. Thankfully, they fit!

Yarn - bought on eBay from KimiK Yarns (from Michigan)
Needles - KnitPicks size 2
Pattern - plain stockinette and 3x2 rib
Method - toe up, heel flap

I did these two at a time on two circulars for the foot. When I separated them for the heels, I never put them back together and finished them one at a time. More details at Forward Motion.

Opal Sideways Socks

I went away for the weekend and took with me a ball of Opal Hundertwasser #1437 and a copy of the translation of the sideways sock pattern that comes inside the label. I was intrigued by the pictures of the yarn knit up as two different socks from their publicity material (image at right) and hunted down a translation on the internet. I am a bit dubious about some of the translation though, since the pattern for the leg does not seem like it would produce a garter stitch cuff and the rest stockinette. Wherever I saw "K70" in the pattern, I substituted "K30, P40," and wherever I saw "K40, Gst30" well, that's actually the same as K70. (Gst=Garter Stitch) Due to lots of time in airports and on airplanes, I am almost ready to sew up the back seam (I'm on the second half of the heel now.), though I haven't taken a picture yet. Once I finish, I'll have a better feel for the sizing, though I think it will be a fairly tall sock. I was worried it would be too long, but from the pictures the toe looks pretty short, so hopefully it will be all right.

Update 5/9/07: I got within a few rows of the end and tried the sock against my foot and realized it was far too narrow across the widest part of my heel. I see now that what I should have done was to check the size when I got to the midpoint (i.e. right after row 27) and add more rows as necessary. Since I didn't do that, I ripped it out to there and added some rows, including a few short rows because my ankle and leg have a slightly larger diameter than my foot. Hopefully this will be better.

April's sock, a bit late

Hi all, I never introduced myself here. I'm Wanda and I blog
here. I've been knitting socks for the past 4 years. While I've always enjoyed knitting socks, lately I've becomed even more obsessed with them. It might have something to do with listening to the Lime & Violet podcast. I know some people are knitting 52 pair of socks for a year, but while I'm obsessed, there's no way I could ever finish that many pairs of socks unless I didn't knit anything else. Hence when I heard about the Slowpoke Socks KAL, it sounded right up my alley.

I didn't finish the April socks on time, but they are done and thought I'd post them here. The toe on the second sock hasn't yet been grafted, but it will done later on today.

The socks are the Monkey pattern by Cookie. The yarn is Austermann Step.

I'll post later with new socks hopefully to be finished by the end of the month.

New to the KAL

Hi I'm new to the KAL and new to knitting as well. I'm a crocheter first and struggled to learn to knit but it finally clicked and I jumped right in and knit my first pair of socks. I'm a SAHM mom and we homeschool. I'm also learning to spin. I have a blog where I share about all things fiber, talk about my kids, dh too sometimes and the books I'm reading. You can check it out here

These are not the greatest looking but they fit.
first pair of knit socks
I'm counting thees as my April pair. More on my blog here

I have a much prettier pair on the needles right now. Using #1 dpnsand Gedifra Fashion Trend sock yarn. I'm following the same tutorial/pattern from my previous pair.
Sock on the needles
Sorry about the pics it's a bit blurry.

Thanks for letting me play too
