November Socks

On a short felted slipper hiatus, I do still have three pairs to make in the rather near future. (Including my pair cuz if I soon don't get a new pair the entire sole of the right slipper is going to come unattached from the body of the slipper.) I did knock off two pairs of socks this month. The first ones were for the Oldest One, started way back on October 16 and not finished til November 24. I used a stitch called pie crust basketweave (details on how to do it on the Ravelry project page), and the yarn is Painted Skeins Superwash Sock Yarn in the zutano colorway. (Winnings from the previous Sock-A-Month KAL.) Details here.

Then there was a quickie pair, started November 24 and finished the 28th, these are plain old vanillas in North Pole sock yarn, the candy cane colorway. They are for the boys' school Christmas raffle draw. I just couldn't capture the color, red is very hard to reproduce correctly. They are a little less bright and pinky and more of a deeper red in person. The yarn has a gold metallic thread through it, giving it sparkle, and it shows up wonderfully in real life, the pictures don't do it justice. These were really fun to knit, I have a skein in a different colorway to make myself a pair. Details here.

You can kinda see the sparkle in it here, but it's so much better in person.

Happy knitting!
