It should be no surprise that I love knitting socks. I find it relaxing and a great project to take anywhere. I can usually make a pair in a week. I rarely change up the pattern I use. I prefer the straight forward pattern and pairing it with stripped and fun colored yarns. The pattern I use most is How I Make My Socks by Susan B. Anderson.
Plus, I am also making a sock yarn afghan with the scrap sock yarn from all the socks I make. That project is slow going, but I hope to have it completed or near completed by the end of the year.
Anyway. Socks! I've knit a bunch and haven't shared any recently. So, scroll on down for all the pics and details.
Trailing Clouds in England and is their Nimbus Self-Striping Sock yarn in the Mind The Gap colorway. If I remember correctly, it is colors from each of the tube stations around London. This site only updates on Thursdays and sells out quickly. Surprisingly, it cost about the same as any other sock yarn even with shipping from England.
See Jayne Knit and is the Superwash Merino and Nylon Sock. There is an entire line of NCIS sock yarn. There is Doctor Who colorways, Criminal Minds, Mad Men, and more. Plus, a lot of other colors and stripes. Also, jewelry and silk 'hankies' to knit with. I so badly want to try those. I recommend checking out the shop. It does ship from Canada so the sock yarn is around $31 with shipping and takes about a week to a week and a half to get here.
I also have the Duckie colorway, but haven't had a chance to knit it yet. I still need the Gibbs, Ziva, and Tim yarn. I'd pretty much love any sock yarn from there, but I'd like to finish my NCIS set. See Jayne Knit sock yarn is my special treat when I have the extra money. Love the colors!
Premier Yarns Wool-Free Sock. It was hard to match up the pattern between the socks. Just tried to make them as close as possible.
Basic Ribbed Socks by Kate Atherley. Peter appreciates my love of fun colored striped yarn so I got this yarn. It is Plymouth Yarn Diversity in the Deep Sea colorway. I bought it from Paradise Fibers using some of the points I had saved up there. I think I paid less than $10 with shipping. This line of sock yarn makes my heart zing! with its stripes and colors. I want more (and I'll hoard it all for me!!).
I need more sock yarn!!!
