Bubble Socks 

I finished another Christmas gift. This one is for my daughter. She requested long patterned socks with this yarn. I have found that I really enjoy knitting socks from the toes up. It’s great for yarn management and it also helps with measuring length. It’s nice knowing that both socks are the same length so […]

Melted Crayon Socks 

Wow! I love how these socks turned out. This is the last skein of my anniversary yarn. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to knit with it. I think that they make great cheery socks. The ribbing that I added makes them extra soft and squishy.  RAVELRY NOTES RECIPIENT: me […]

March Socks

These are from some yarn that I dyed last year some time. It was one of my first experiments with using multiple colors and I wasn’t too sure how I was going to like it knit up. However, am really pleased with the results but I didn’t think there was enough purple in the yarn […]

Ridge and Eyelet Socks 

I started this pair of socks way back in September but I lost interest in knitting them because they were being knit top down. I find that I prefer to knit socks from the toes up. I finally decided to just get on with it so I could use the needles for something else. These […]

Ugly Ankle Socks

I managed to knit a pair of socks with some yarn that didn’t quite turn out the way I had wanted it too. I figure that ankle socks to wear a round the house will be a perfect use for yarns that I am not totally satisfied with. I also knit a little mini sock […]
