FO: Slip into Spring Socks

FO: Slip into Spring Socks

The time: Mid-March.

The challenge: make my mum a pair of socks with no lace, no cables, no short-row heels but which will be fun and interesting enough for me not to want to stab my own eyes out.

The result: Slip into Spring!

I combined a simple slip-stitch pattern with a WendyKnits sock template, put my head down and made a pair of socks in 11 days flat.

The back of the leg is worked in a rib pattern to help hold the sock up (I hope)

Pattern: Slip into Spring (my own stitch pattern superimposed on Wendy’s Gusset Heel Toe-up sock)

Yarn/Needles/Technique: Lane Cervinia Forever Jacquard wool/nylon sock yarn with 2.25 mm KnitPro circular for Magic Loop. Toe-up 2-at-a-time.

Toe/heel: Wedge toe with Judy’s Magic Cast on.  Gusset Heel from Socks from the Toe Up by WendyKnits.

I’m planning to make myself a pair of these in a semi-variegated yarn (my first Posh Yarn purchase to be precise) and then I may write up a pattern.  Contain yourselves, good people! :D

Sorry for the inconsistent quality of the photos.  I took these at 9 at night in March. Indoors.  I did the best I could!

  1. That looks like a fun yarn to knit with. I thought it was a Regia at first. It looks similar to a yarn I used long ago.

    Wendy’s pattern is great. I’m using it to figure out how to do the heels and toes on another toe up pattern I’m making.


Because it's just me talking if you don't comment!
