Yay Me! I finally finished these socks!!! Wooohooo. I started the beauties back in November, got off track with other holiday knitting projects and finally I finished them last night. I do love these socks — they look amazing. They are actually too cool. I might have to wear some sort of skirt or something horrible in order to show them off. I am noticing that I somehow made the toes a little differently. I guess I should’ve taken notes while I was making my first sock, but I don’t think I anticipated it taking me almost 4 months to finish.
I used a pattern from the book “Knitting Vintage Socks” by Nancy Bush. If anyone out there is interested in making socks or already makes socks but wants some cool patterns to use, please pick up this book. It is awesome. Right now I never want to knit another sock again, BUT I can not resist wanting to knit up all the patterns in this book.
So here are the details:
Pattern: Child’s First Sock (In Shell Pattern) from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush
Yarn: Koigu Premium Merino in Mustard
Needles: Size 1
