Knitted socks

Yipee! Finished my first pair of knitted socks! It will be a present for my mom, so I hope she likes this colorful rendition of a traditional pair of socks.

Here are the specs: knitted from toe up with circular needles (KA size US 2 - 2.75mm), with Saki Silk yarn by Wisdom Yarns (55% fine merino superwash, 25% nylon, 25% silk). It is sooooo soft and comfortable! I will need to mail it to Brazil right away before I change my mind and start wearing it, particularly with this cold weather we are having in Utah.

I really like the colors of the yarn and how the project looks after you knit with it. I have another skein of the same yarn in a different color scheme for my next pair, which I will start right away.

The cast on is done using the Turkish or Mediterranean method - easy. The pair is knitted at the same time, although the heels are knitted separately: do one foot, then the other, then finish both feet. I enjoy working with circular needles... no seams!

This is my finish for today. I am a happy camper !

Enjoy the weekend,

  2. Love them Denise. They're so cheery. I have been wearing my wool hand knitted socks the last two days. You definitely need to knit a pair for yourself.
