After not posting to the blog for a few months here I am back again with a bunch of finished socks. When stressed I like mindless knitting and that means knitting socks. The first pair is something you saw ages ago. The yarn is Zauberball in color 2135. In real life the colors aren’t so bright. The flash on the camera really brightened up the color in an unnatural way. The pattern is my usual plain stockinette.
One of the women at knit night had some really pretty Patons Kroy stripes yarn and I decided I needed to knit some stripes so off I went to AC Moore to pick up enough for a pair. Oops! The yarn was on clearance and I may have bought enough for three pairs. The pattern is my regular stockinette pattern done on size 1 1/2 needles. This color is called sweet stripes.
So far I’ve completed two pair. This is also my plain stockinette pattern but I did them on size 2 needles. I like the way the socks feel when knit with the 1 1/2 size needle best. They seem less likely to wear out quickly. I’m guessing this is the sailor stripes color.
Finally we have the last socks I have to show you. The yarn is Mad Color Fiber Arts Luster in the Last Friday Night color. The pattern is again my standard plain stockinette one. The photo of the color isn’t correct. The socks are very dark and the bright spots of color are much more subtle.
If you’d like to see another pair of socks I knit this summer check out yesterdays post. Tuesdays post has a super cute hat I finished over the summer and Mondays post has a bag I had sewn over the weekend. If you want to see more FO Friday posts be sure to visit Tami’s Amis blog.
