Simple Toe-up Knee High Socks for Me

7 Dec

I have been waiting for a little while now for some yarn to arrive so I can get started knitting a secret project so I didn’t want to start anything big or difficult. So, always having a huge stash of sock yarn available, I decided to knit myself a pair of knee-high socks for the cold days. I’m using some Regia Harmony Color. The socks are toe-up with gusset and heel flap and I’m knitting them two at once.

I have just finished the heel on both of them and this is what they look like right now. It’s nice to be able to knit something for myself for a change 😉

Also, you might notice on the picture, I’m using square needles. That’s right, square! This is the first time that I’m using my new Kollage square needle. I have carpal tunnel in one hand still (the first hand was operated about 6 months ago) and I wanted to try those as square needles are supposed to be gentler on the hands. So far, it seems like I’m getting less symptoms when I knit with them so, yay!

Hiss Socks

8 sizes included in pattern, to fit the whole family!

Hiss are toe-up socks with a heel flap and gusset. I designed them for my 7-year old boy who is fascinated by snakes. A simple cable goes up the socks, undulating like a snake. They are ideal to use up small leftovers of yarn, as colour A requires little yarn.

Another Pair of Skew

25 May

I was visiting my mum in France and decided to knit her a pair of Skew. She saw my pair when I visited a few weeks before and loved them! I had some leftover Felici sock yarn from my Agate Capelet, but not enough of one colour. So, I decided to use both colours and alternate between colours every other row. I love the effect I got this way!

A pair of toe-up socks with gusset. The pattern is pretty clear to me, but I’ve asked people around me and they can’t figure it out. If you read this, I’d love your feedback, what do you think the pattern on the top of the foot is?
