So … Socks

A short post this week to share with you my latest Finished Object … My Nutkin socks are off the needles and ready for my feet!

The only change I made to the pattern was to use rib for the cuff, instead of a folded hem. I’m not sure how the ridge across the toe flap will work in practice when in a shoe – I guess time will tell – but it was interesting to knit and I’m willing to give it a go before making a judgment.

I’m already lining up my next sock project … Just a case of deciding which ball to use from my (greatly reduced) stash 😀

Do you have a favourite sock pattern? I’d love to hear about it!

  1. Your socks are great! I just knit Winters Frost and really enjoyed it. My favorite pattern is Monkey socks by Cookie A. They knit up quickly and the pattern works well with all yarn even the most wildly variegated.

    I only knit plainish socks, because they are my ‘don’t have to think’ project. I use Susan B Anderson’s ‘How I knit my socks’. I don’t even need to read the pattern anymore.

    Well, in the worst case, it wouldn’t be too hard to reknit the toe…!
    Lovely colourway, great pattern 😉
    I most often make plain vanilla with a ribbed leg but just making a simple cable ‘Thankyou Sock’ from my knitting calendar at the mo, in plain mustard from C’s shop 👍

      Yes, I contemplated grafting the toe join instead, then decided to stick with the pattern and see how it wears for a while … As you say, I can always undo the cast-off at a future date. The beauty of hand-made, eh?! 😀 Looking forward to seeing your socks – they sound lovely! 🙂
