I've been making lots and lots of socks. Here are some of them:
Last Winter I made my first pair which were supposed to be for me but somehow ended up warming my mum's feet:
She gets very cold feet so I don't mind.
In the Spring I made my second pair:
They came out a bit too big (you can see them wrinkling round the ankle in the photo) but that's OK cos I can fit a pair of thin socks underneath to prevent blisters
And in the Summer I finally finished my third pair which I made for my friend Nicki:
They have a 2x2 ribbed leg so she can turn down the cuff if she feels like it.
And finally... it's nearly Autumn and I've just finished the pair I've made as a leaving present for my boss. They're made with 100% cashmere sock yarn from Hip Knits. These have a short 3x1 ribbed leg.
and a close-up:
I like making socks because they're quick but technically challenging and don't take much yarn, which means I can splash out on something special occasionally.
