Wow, who would have thought I’d be knitting so many socks this winter, since generally speaking, up to this point, I’ve actually taken little to no pleasure in the creation of these toasty feet wonders.
And now, I may say, I’m a semi-convert. I won’t go out on a limb and declare myself full-blown sock knitting craz-o, but I’m pretty darn consistent these days in producing some sleeves for ere feeties.
These beautious purply-brown-orange colorway are a simple stockinette stitch sock with a 1/2-inch 1X1 ribbing, but that’s literally all I can say about them since they were so easy to knit up and I didn’t follow any pattern.
I intend to gift these glorious babies (which fit a small foot more than perfectly…and by small I mean sized 4 or 5) to my Mum, who has little bitty feet like me, though she’s got a good 1/2-inch on me, clocking it at a monsterous 5.5.
File Under: Socks on the mantle, socks on the feet. Whichever you choose.
