FO: Cinema Socks

Well, December is here at last, and I feel like I really ought to have more Giftmas knitting done than I do (which is ridiculous-I have half of one present done, another won't take more than two hours, and the yarn for the last two is en route, so really, I'm in fantastic shape for the shape I'm in). But despite the frenzy of trying not to fall behind before we get too far into December, and tying up 2015, and planning the next few designs, I did somehow manage to finally finish a pair of socks for myself, and just in time for wool sock weather!

After almost eleven months on the needles, these bad boys are done! As I was finishing them up, I realized that this is only my second pair of socks knit this year (the first being my mum's birthday socks), which is kind of sad, given that I used to be such a prolific sock-knitter. I love my knit socks, and I have an entire bag of sock yarn in stash that's dedicated for socks, and I really had hoped that I would have gotten more pairs done this year. I guess that's something to keep in mind as I'm planning my 2016 knitting goals. (I think the solution to my sock problem is to go out to the movies more. I must experiment and report back.)

These are just basic cuff-down socks, using the Yarn Harlot's Recipe, which is always my go-to. The yarn was a dream too-I love how Patons Kroy knits up for socks, and I know these are going to be a fantastic cozy addition to my sock box.

  1. Great finish here. I like them with your rolled up jeans.

  2. There's nothing like a great pair of handmade striped socks :) I also finished an unusually low number of socks this year, maybe it's not our fault but the planets were just aligned weirdly (I'm sure planetary alignment is critical for sock knitting).

  3. You have a good point here!I totally agree with what you have said!!Thanks for sharing your views...hope more people will read this article!!! buy football socks in bulk
