Striped Socks in Pairs

January 20, 2019

I don’t set New Year’s resolutions, knitting or otherwise. Occasionally, I’ll send an intention, often vague, into the universe — “try not to worry so much” or “live more mindfully” or “don’t buy new yarn until you’ve used at least as much from your stash.”

Just kidding about that last one.

But even though I’ve not set a “sock of the month” goal, I’m quite pleased and a bit surprised that my first socks of 2019 are knit and blocked.

Yarn is Patons Kroy Sock in Blue Striped Ragg with contrasting toe and heel in an anonymous yarn from aforementioned stash. They’re now wrapped in tissue paper and tucked away for someone special.

Those of you who’ve been with me for a while have seen a few of friend Judy’s socks, starting with her very first sock about five years ago when she took my knitting class. She’s made many pairs since, including this lovely pair of knee socks (her preferred length for her own socks), which she modeled at the gym this week.

She’s puzzled — and a bit bothered — by the relative droopiness of the left one, but since they’re knee socks, no one will know. Except you, of course, and I know you won’t say a thing.

    Nice work on the high socks Judy K – Jason Varitek style! And nice pair Mary Ann to start 2019 off on the right (and left) foot. 😉

    These are gorgeous. I have so many questions about making socks that I would need to sit with a wise sock knitter to get all my topics covered. Good work and lucky recipient (in the future). Happy NEW YEAR! I’m thrilled to report that at 8+ months Iz, my granddaughter, is growing into the sweaters I knit her when she was in utero. there’s a great sense of completion.
