First Friday, Finished Object

If my feet look relaxed in the photo, it’s because these socks were a delight to knit.

The long sections of leg and foot never got boring. How could they, with the ever-changing panorama of colors unfolding. The yarn was excellent – no splitting, no knots. This is one of the yarns I purchased at North Wind shop in Spooner, WI.

It was the ball on the left, Berroco Sox – a nice blend of wool and nylon.

I chose to knit a 3 by 1 rib pattern again. This time I continued with the rib after I finished the heel shaping. It circles the foot, which makes the socks hug it nicely. For the shaping, I used Hermione’s Everyday Sock pattern, available on Ravelry.

One of six children, I was raised by a busy mom, who instilled in me a love of fabric. Though I learned to sew and knit at a young age, it was the arrival of my first grandchild that pushed me into action. A long-time knitter, I am now ready to explore all things fiber.

  1. Nice looking socks you are all set for winter when our feet are always cold. How do you get your knitting done so quickly. Do you knit in your sleep?
