FO: Socks

Here are two pairs of socks I recently completed. Both patterns are from Sensational Knitted Socks. The blue yarn is Opal that I got on sale from Kemp’s store. It’s kind of hard to see in the picture, but it’s just a fancy rib pattern. The pink socks are in Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock. I love the way they came out and plan to make another pair with that kind of lacy pattern.

:slight_smile: Nice socks! Love the blue especially!

They look great!

Neat! I’d love to try socks but I’m still too intimidated by DPN’s. :rofling:

Both are very nice! I love the colors. :thumbsup:

Lovely socks…WTG :cheering:

Those look nice and warm !!!

Those are purty!!

those are great! I love love love that Opal yarn!

For the poster who said they are still intimidated by DPN’s but would love to try socks: I was the same, so I started doing a pair on straight needles. :slight_smile: Once you do those, it’s easier to understand the different parts of a sock (heel, gusset, toe) and DPN’s don’t seem so bad anymore. :slight_smile:

love those pink socks! do you remember what LL colorway that was?

Great socks. I love doing socks.


Very nice socks!!

Great socks!! :happydance:

cloud9 Hey are those Lorna Lace socks durable? They look so pretty I would like to try, but don’t want to put forth the effort if I can’t wash and really wear.

Let me know. Tks

I so admire pp who can knit sox !! I just love them! (too chicken to try) (dpn’s are my friends, maybe this will help me get the nerve up for making sox!)

The colorway was called sherbert, and I bought it at

Yes, Lorna’s yarn is very durable. Those socks are over a year old now. I wear them fairly often, and they still look great. The feet have felted a little bit but that just makes them more comfy. I just throw them in the washer and then let them air dry, although they can go into the dryer without any problems.

Those are great.
