October Socks

These are Pulled Salt Water Taffy Socks by Jackie Erickson-Schweitzer.  The yarn is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Desert Flower.  I used size US 1 (2.5mm).


Close up view here.

Not my best pair of socks.  I ordered the wrong color.  This color is much brighter than I wanted.  I also tried to match the start point, so the two socks would match. Obviously that didn't happen!  But it was a fun pattern to knit.

They are bright and will keep me warm this winter.


I have two pair of socks for this month  . The first ones were actually cast on in September but not finished till early October . They are some warm ski socks for DH . The pattern is Garter Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks .The yarn is Regia Highland Tweed . Mike is pretty happy with them .

The second pair are for me . It was love at first sight when I saw the colourway at my LYS . This was one  of my few yarn purchases this  year . I'm really work down some of the sock yarn stash . This is another Regia yarn , Ombre Stripe by Kaffe Fassett . The pattern is Jeck by Regina Satta . I really enjoyed knitting this pattern , thanks Regina !

October Socks

Two pairs completed for October, with two (one new...) pairs STILL on the needles.  First, I finished my first pair of man socks after my husband had been badgering me:

Pattern is Jane Cochran's Hedgerow and the yarn is KP Stroll tonal in Kindling.

Then I settled in to knitting the long-promised pair of 'gween socks' for my little girl, using leftovers from my previously posted Kai-mei socks and a little yellow mini skein I picked up at my LYS for $1.  I used a single pattern repeat from the Dragonfly socks to make them more interesting.  And getting a good picture of toddler feet is as difficult as getting a good picture of their smiles:

October Socks

It's been awhile.  I lost my knitting/blogging mojo for quite awhile, but I think it is back.  :-)  At least I hope it is.

I finished a pair of simple stockinette socks for October.

Yarn:  Regia Patch Antik

These will be a Christmas gift for DH.  I knit on them last week while we are on vacation and he didn't suspect a thing.  So, shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...don't tell.

October. Check.

Finished up a pair of socks for my nephew.

Basic vanilla with a 3x1 ribbing using Regia's Kaffe Fassett yarn.  Really nice stuff and would use again.

By the Skin of my Teeth September

Pattern: Haystacks by Lisa Stichweh
Yarn: Hazel Knits Artisan in Blue Spruce
Needles: 2.25mm

I finished these Sunday afternoon and I forgot to post them!  Crazy because I have been a knitting fool for the last few days to finish these so that I would have completed my pair for the month.  Then posted them in all the appropriate groups on Ravelry,...... and forgot the blog.  So silly!  Anyway, this was a fun and easy pattern and knits up pretty quickly due to lots of stockinette.  I love that they are left and right socks to add a little fun and interest.
