Surprise! More socks!  All three pairs are 60 stitch vanilla socks, heel over 30sts, toe to 20sts,  knit on 2.5mm needles with Patons Kroy Sock Yarn, whether it be stripes, jacquard, solids, etc.  First up are a striped pair in rainbow stripes that I could in now way make totally match, so I got them as close as I could.  The cuffs are a little off, but I figured the rest of the sock was more important to match since the cuff is usually inside pant legs anyways.  Ravelry details here.

Next are a pair with solid Coal heels and toes, paired with spring leaf stripes.  Details here.

And the last ones are summer moss jacquard, details here.

I do have a hat finished, but I need some good pictures taken of it before I can post it.  For the next bit I hope to be concentrating on some Christmas gifts, so there should be more than just socks to see! lol

Happy knitting!

More Socks, Again

Got a couple of more pairs of socks finished. There's another pair, too, but not washed, blocked, and photographed yet.

First up is a pair of Basic Cabled Socks knit with Lion Brand Sock Ease Solids in a rusty orange color.  I used a slightly larger needle and decreased the stitch count to 64sts.  Details here.

There's also a vanilla pair, Lion Brand Sock Ease Prints. Details here.

I will have something different than socks, soon, though.  Our new local yarn shop opened up by fellow Knitterpudlian, Marti, is having a Wurm KAL.  I bought this at her shop.  That pattern has been on my list for a long time, so it was a good reason to start one. 

Happy knitting!
