WIP – Knee Socks

WIP - Socks

Or maybe I should call these however high they are before the yarn runs out socks. These are for Katrina and when I told her I was making her knee socks she said they should go over her knees. Hmm, is that an appropriate look for a four year old? I think she’s hoping they’ll poke out a little from under her boots.

I went to my non-favorite but closer LYS on Wednesday to get some yarn to start a Christmas gift and left with this Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Merino instead — they did not have the yarn I needed or any reasonable substitute. The colorway is called bright — if that’s not an understatement I don’t know what is. I’m using Kate Gilbert‘s generic sock pattern and doing the whole thing — except the heel and toe — in a 2×2 rib. If the yarn starts to get scarce I might do the heel and toe in a solid color. Still a ways to go before I worry about that though.

    Those look very fun! I am still impressed with knitting in the round on dpns. Not ready to conquer that yet. Katrina needs some of these for her colorful socks

    So cute. It makes me want to give sock knitting a (third) try. Maybe it’ll be third time lucky…

    Ok, scary scary. I dream of someday knitting w/ 2 needles. Your picture here using 4 will probably keep me up at night. This is nuts – is it normal to use 4? I’m a total knitting know nothing! Anyhow, the yarn is beautiful amazing and I’m looking forward to seeing the final product!

    I agree with Marisa, I will someday knit with 2 needles. 4 is amazing. And the variegated wool you’re using is so cute!!
