Second Socks!

 I finished my second pair of socks! Simple and straightforward pattern. Made with Pattons Sock Yarn (Stretch, I think). I've lost the ball band. I know the color is Cherry Sour.
 The pattern is Susan B. Anderson's How I Make My Socks pattern.
I flew through the second sock. Took less than a week. The first sock took ages since it was constantly set aside for other projects.

I am so very proud of my simple socks. Such a gratifying knit since it can be finished fairly quickly and you have cool socks to wear!

Love the color! I wish I had patience for socks. Yours definitely inspire me to make more, but my feet are so claustrophobic!

I love wearing socks since my feet are always so cold. I have a few sock patterns saved in Ravelry but I still come back to this pattern and one other. Simple easy to do design. Great for taking anywhere.
I also use an 8 inch circular instead of the double pointed needles. This makes it easier for me and I find that I knit faster. Once I get to the toe I do have to change to dpns, but it is only for a few rows.
