More socks…

Easy knitted socks free patternI’ve finished another pair of socks. Sock making is really lovely, the effortlessly magical way the wool creates its stripy pattern continues to fascinate me🙂
Easy knitted socks free patternChild number one is very happy with them…Easy knitted socks free patternOf course, as I’m sure those of you with children know, that means I am being asked on an almost hourly basis how I’m progressing on the socks I’ve promised to make for child number two:DSC_0398 (1)Not too badly, I reply…Carters socks 2As I laze with my feet up and knit away the hours, Carters sockspausing only to nibble on feijoas (notice anything in the spoon?), feijoasand smell the sweet scent of this beautiful blue hyacinth…Hyacinth 2 HyacinthThen I wake up from that daydream, roused by the call to get back to preparing breakfast/lunch/dinner/ washing laundry/ cleaning/ work/ finding some lost doodad/ chauffeuring children to music/ friends/ sports –  did I mention I’m coaching a soccer team now too?

So yes Carter, I’m working on your socks love, they’ll be finished… soon, I promise.

    The magical way – that’s what it is! Did you ever try knitting socks toe-up? That’s even better (I think). Beautiful pictures, thanks for sharing, Coach🙂

    Not to preempt the earlier woman’s reply but I knit toe-up and use this pattern which is a generic pattern and so useful for any size. http://wendyjohnson.net/blog/sockpattern.htm
    It makes socks that are shaped like shop ones but I like it because there is no picking up stitches or grafting toes! The wrapped stitches and potential holes can be a bit tricky till you get used to them but otherwise they are so easy and you can try on as you go.
