Socks finished!

May 22, 2012

Green socks — complete!

Took a bit over two skeins. I’m going to give the recipient the remaining yarn for darning, I think. I’m hoping he likes them, and if he does I’m pretty sure he’ll wear them until they start disintegrating.

It’s a shame I’m not that big on making socks, because they’re a satisfying quick-ish knit. I haven’t made any fancy socks yet, though, so that’s the plan for this summer — possibly the Ravelympics. Something a bit more challenging with patterning and lace and whatnot. And then, as with most things, I’ll find that it’s not actually that hard, just a bit more time consuming.

That could also be a case of famous last words. We’ll see.

    I bought a book called Socks from the toe up by Wendy D Johnson. Only knit one pair from there seeing as they all call for VERY THIN YARN AND NEEDLES, but LOVED both the technique and the patterns. Might be worth checking out. Or come over and look, for that sake.
