Knit Socks & Yarn


I knit these purple socks for my friend Susan for Christmas. No matter how I photographed it the royal purple color of these just didn't come out in a photograph. They look more blue, but they are really a beautiful shade of purple. These are an acrylic/nylon sock yarn.

I also knit these socks for Susan too. They are a variegated self-striping yarn in blue and green. It's a wool/bamboo/nylon blend sock yarn.

Oh and look what Susan mailed to me! Now I can knit some socks for myself with this great-looking sock yarn in those yummy Kaffe Fassett colors. Wow so many colors in one yarn, I can't wait to see how they knit up. The green ribbony-type yarn I had never seen before. If you pull the green yarn out width wize it looks like those fishnet stockings I remember wearing years and years ago. Lots of possibliites for using this yarn. I wonder how it will knit up? Can't wait to try it. Thanks Susan!

  1. I love these socks? Do they take long to make?

  2. Hi Stasha,
    I'm answering you here because I don't have your email to reply to you. I'm a fairly fast knitter and I became pretty good at knitting socks, so for me they don't take too long to knit. I'm guessing I made a pair in about 3 or 4 nights while watching movies on DVD. If you've never knit socks before, it may take a while to get the hang of it. I knit socks on 2 circular needles, which for me is a lot easier than using double-pointed needles. I also like to knit on 2 circular needles much better than the Magic Loop method too.
