Mystery Socks

Mystery Sock

I just loved knitting Kristen‘s mystery socks for 2009. I may start trying to knit socks this way in the future — knitting both cuffs, then both legs, etc. — because it gets them done, both socks, pretty quickly. These are for my grandmother and so they are a bit big on me, which is good since she has bigger feet than me. Kristen’s pattern is wonderful and the details in the socks are really great. So one Christmas gift done, a whole bunch more to go.

    I should try knitting 2 socks at once, otherwise, I only make one! And I’ve tried several times and have made many a lonely sock(5!). Yours look awesome and I’ve certainly got the sock yarn to make some too!

    Those turned out awesome. I wish I was a better knitter (or knew how to knit period!)

    These turned out so beautifully! I have still never been successful with a pair of socks. Maybe I’ll try these and see if I can get them cranked out!

    I love the idea of avoiding the dreaded SSS-second sock syndrome. Does this mean that you have two sets of needles that you’re using at the same time? Cute socks and pretty color!

    Just finished seeing the pretty socks you have knitted. Really looks elegant. I just can’t imagine that you made a socks like that, amazing! Hope to wear that in sometimes. Good work of hand. Thanks for sharing.
