Sock it to Me Week 7

I'm pleased to announce the completion of the first pair of socks in the year of socks! (We're just going to ignore the fact that these are February's sock and January is still waiting patiently in the front pocket of my knitting bag.)

I was so excited by how well I got the strips to match. I really need to get into the practice of starting striped yarn at a color change so then my strips will easily match up. (Of course when the yarn company decides to randomly repeat three strips of colors it throws off all of your planning. If you look closely you'll notice the purple strips stripy bit repeats itself on the right sock. Grrr.)

Linking up here:


  1. That's frustrating that the company changed things up on you! I guess if you have closed shoes on no one would notice! Lovely socks. Visiting from yarn along.

  2. I did a nearly year of socks in 2012. Towards the end of the year I was getting a little tired of socks and made a baby sweater out of sock yarn, and a pair of baby socks that I counted (the sweater because it used up sock yarn stash, and the baby socks because hey - they're socks). I do feel a lot better about my stash now, and I have a fantastic collection of socks to wear. I'm making more this year.
