Finished socks

Here are my last 2 FOs…

Started the red/multi ones ages ago, on 2 circs (size 2), but ended up taking them off onto dpns out of sheer frustration. The yarn (Dancing by KP) is stretchy and kept catching on the addi naturals… I was unhappy with both.

The beige/cream/blue ones are from Regia yarn, made on size 1 addi natural dpns. I enjoyed these needles. This yarn is meant to be very sturdy, but was not as fun to knit as a softer yarn would be.

Beautiful job on both. :cheering:

They both look great, but I really like the Regia ones. :cheering:

Nikki–Everytime I see your list of accomplishments you’d like by your 1st knitversary i am inspired! I need my own list, it would have to be my 2nd or 3rd? :shrug:

Wonderful job!

ooooh! They look great! :cheering: :cheering:

If you made these socks from the toe up, please tell what method of binding off you used. Each method I use doesn’t seem to stretch enough without being too tight.

BTW, your socks look great. Can you post directions for the socks or a link to the pattern if it was a free one?

Thanks and Merry Christmas.

Lighting,
Both of the pairs of socks were made top-down.I have not tried toe-up yet but when i do I’ll use the Sensational Socks book by Charlene Schurch since I trust her methods.

For the socks in dancing I used Nenah Galati’s DVD on knitting 2 socks on 2 circs, until I couldn’t stand it anymore and transferred them to dpns. For the Regia socks I used the Thuja pattern from Knitty.com adapted to sockweight yarn by following the Silver Sock Tutorial - just google it and it will give you the link.

Hope that helps! Merry Christmas!

Those are gorgeous socks!

I can’t wait until I get brave enough to make something like that… I love how they turned out, good job!

:cheering: :cheering:

WOOHOO for socks! I wish I had some of those on my feet right now. well i have socks on just my dh’s.

Great job! makes me want to get to knittin!

The socks are beautiful…I’m trying to get up the courage to attempt some sock knitting very soon!

Well, it’s not that hard - I know I was intimidated at first too. Check out Amy’s video clip on knitting in the round (on this site!), that’s a good start!

beautiful work–I love the brown ones!

Wow - I agree with a former commenter, both are well done, but I LOVE the colors in the Regia pair :inlove:
Great job!
