From Sensational Knitted Socks, this is another fun pattern that knits up quickly if you commit to it. I started these on February 5th and kept putting them aside for other projects and finished this evening (5/31). I used Nature Spun Sport as a test yarn for a sock class. They are comfy, cot but since I have a terrible habit of throwing socks in the wash I'm sure I won't be using it again.

Women's 9 1/2 on size 2 Inox dpn's. More specs and details at fiberitis.

Spring semester socks!


These, my first socks ever, only took an entire semester to finish (including all the requisite first-time froggings). Finished the pair and my senior thesis almost instantaneously (and immediately went out and bought more pretty yarn to celebrate).

Here they are in all their self-striping glory:

Spring Semester Socks
Garter rib socks from Charlene Schurch's Sensational Knitted Socks
64 st
Plymouth Sockotta, Colorway 5616 (sad, no fun name)
US 2 (2.75 mm), 4 dpns
Started: early January
Finished: May 6, 2007

Yay!! I've already started in on another SKS pattern... it's not going to take me quite as long to finish the pair this time, now that I have NO HOMEWORK!!!

Crosshatch Lace Socks Done

I knit the Crosshatch Lace pattern from More SKS in this orange Trekking. I knit the legs with 72 stitches on size 0's and the feet with 68 stitches on size 1's. This is a great pattern, easy to memorize and fun to knit.

I'm working on these socks along with a few other pairs. The stitch pattern is on page 96 of More SKS. I'm using Regia cotton/wool blend yarn and size 2.0 mm needles. It's a 12 round repeat pattern, but all of the odd rounds are plain stockinette and the other six are all variations of the same combination of increases and decreases. I used an eye of partridge heel flap and am continuing the stitch pattern on the instep to the toe.

Scrolls Socks (from More SKS)

I have finished my Scrolls socks from More SKS. I finished the first one in April but got sidetracked by other projects and finally finished the second sock today.

The pattern reminds me of ripples in puddles and so I thought it went perfectly with the yarn I had from Posh Yarn in last month's sock club - it's the April Showers colourway.

I knitted these toe up with short row heels on 2 x 2.75 mm Inox Grey circs. It's a 14-row pattern but knits up surprisingly quickly.
