My First Socks!!!


Wow. My first pair of real socks. Aren’t they cool?

The yarn is Lanna Grossa Meilenweit Multiringel, some sort of wool/nylon blend, on 3.25 mm needles. I only used one ball, which is really good because I can’t find the second ball. Otherwise I could tell you more about the yarn- I threw away the label because I knew I had the other. It’s nice stuff, and it really softened up after a wash.

I’ve already got yarn for my next pair of socks, some pretty handpainted Wildfoote. I’ve also decided they’ll be in a smaller gauge and feature a more complex stitch pattern.

    [...] A pair of socks.  Brown Sheep Handpaint Wildfoote, 75% wool/25% nylon, “Brown Sugar” colorway.  These are top-down socks from Sensational Knitted Socks, corrugated rib from the 4-stitch pattern section, knit on short US 1 DPNs.  They’re pretty much identical to Matt’s socks, just with a different ribbing.  Using the shorty needles was super fun on Matt’s socks, but I couldn’t stand using them on these.  I need to try some metal sock needles, I think, especially since Brittany never replaced the dang broken needle.

    [...] on her website. I don’t expect you to recognize the yarn, but it’s left over from the first pair of socks I ever knit. Matt and the baby will have matching feet!  Well, sorta [...]
