Wooly Warmth

I didn’t make Christmas, but I did finish before the end of the year. Nine pairs of socks:

that started as this:

at the end of April.

On a cold day, there’s nothing like the warmth of a pair of wool socks or giving gifts you’ve made yourself.

  1. Nice! Now I need to get on the ball! I’m still on row 2of my hubby’s washcloth, and his birthday is next week. It was supposed to be for his last birthday. But this year is different! No looking back. Thanks for the inspiration. They’re beautiful!

  2. Hi! I came across your blog during my lunch break & was unable to comment or add you for some reason.
    Love your blog! Also have to admit I’m a little jealous of your sock project! Love the colors! I’m on my very first pair of knit socks..have no idea what I’m doing & not really loving them so far 😉

    1. Thanks so much! Socks are my go-to project (though I have to admit I struggled with my first pair and didn’t go back to socks for more than a year). Good luck with your socks; I’m anxious to hear about your progress!

  3. Oh my, this is just loooovely eye-candy! Is this yarn fingering-weight or sock yarn?? It looks a little thicker. Also, the pattern is sooo pretty! I love the classic color changes in the heel, toe, and cuff! This is quite a project, bravo for getting it done!
    Also, are these socks already blocked or before blocking (if you even block)? Just trying to get an idea of how socks should look freshly knit!

    Thanks! Great blog!

  4. Thanks! I wanted the socks to look the same but different, so I tried to change up the stripes at the top. The yarn is fingering weight (Stroll from Knit Picks). I don’t block my socks; they are fresh off the needles. 🙂

      1. It’s just a pattern that’s evolved over the years of knitting socks for my nieces and nephews. Sort of a combination of a couple with some modifications thrown in. What size are you thinking of making?

I'm wondering what you're thinking?
