Socks for me

Posted in Knitting at 10:11 am by dianelaces

In the last two months I will have made two pairs of socks for myself…how indulgent! Of course the girls at work think I stink because I’ve been cranking out the socks and none for them.

These two pairs have both been knit at the same time on two circular needles.  I like knowing that they are as close to being identical as possible.

The first pair I finished are black and the pattern is Moc Croc.  It’s a free pattern from Knit Picks.

These socks are called Girl’s Best Friend anklets and are a purchased pattern from Knit Picks.  I knit them using Knit Picks Essential in navy.  The yarn is nice to knit with and washes up nicely.  I don’t want to have socks that I have to treat any differently than the rest of the laundry.  In this photo one of the cuffs is turned down so you can see the pattern.  I am at the point of decreasing for the toe and will finish them today while watching football.
