Crazy socks!

Another completed pair!

Started: June 29, 2005
Finished: July 4, 2005
Yarn: Knitpicks Sock Garden in Zinnia
Pattern: Pretty much just made it up using the Knitters Handy Book of Patterns...mind you it is just simple ribbing carried down the instep.

I must tell you that my mom has been wearing her socks out of this yarn...even though its super hot, and they are wool...but I did make them...anyway, they are really blurring on the bottom...alot...keep this in mind when choosing this yarn. I don't think this soft merino is going to wear very well.

Cute! Good to know about there yarn. I wonder how this compares to other sock yarn, as I can only imagine all socks and the yarn they are made from take quite a beating on the feet.

You really are a crazy sock knitter! I love the stripes in this yarn with the ribbing. As for the blurring, I have a pair made from Koigu which is doing that on the heels.. so it might be a merino thing.

Yea! They are so pretty! I started my first pair of socks, but they are not knitting up as fast as yours :)

Great pair of socks, I love the combination of the simple ribbing with the self striping yarn. I imagine most wool yarn will eventually felt a bit on the sole, hopefully it will "harden up" and not wear through.

To be honest my dear blogger, I found this by accident, but I'll be a regular visitor here. Anyway, they are really blurring on the bottom, always is good to know about all this.

well, I think that this is excellent because I like those socks actually I'm gonna buy some of them to my mom because I'd like that she looks like that, I know my father will be impressed and he won't use viagra anymore.
