I don’t usually post all the socks I knit because I don’t really knit anything special, just basic vanilla socks. But I knit Christmas socks last summer and two pairs of socks this winter:
These are great! Such fun yarns, I do love stripey socks.
I love self striping yarn, you never know what kind of sock you are going to get. I know some people spend a lot of time trying to make two socks that are exactly the same, but I kind of like the mismatched look.
Terrific socks! Imagine being such a knitter that these don’t seem like a big deal to you, wow. They sure are impressive to the rest of us!
I’m with you. Coordinating rather than matching exactly is more fun (and less pressure) for me.
These are wonderful! Love the colors.
They’re fantastic! I like self-striping yarns, too… Keeps it interesting as you knit. There’s nothing wrong with Vanilla socks - they’re just about “the perfect sock.” All that stockinette is comfy.
Your socks are beautiful! Wish I could knit and make socks… They seem very special to me!
I like all these pairs, but especially the middle green/purple stripes!
Vanilla? Girl, those are swirls in the very least! They look amazing. I hear that socks are hard, especially the heals, so kudos on these. I love a craft that is actually functional so this is extra cool.
They might seem vanilla to you, but you get TWO done! The striping yarns are my favorite as well…I prefer that handmade socks are not identical!
Handmade socks are one of those crafty items that I yearn for but will likely never learn to do. I can loom knit slipper socks but that’s where my skills begin and end in the sock department. So even “vanilla” socks wow me!!
Wow! This project is out of this world and one of this week’s featured projects!
