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.
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.
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. 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.
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 theknitter.com.
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.
