FO Friday- socks edition

More socks have been finished! Ahh, the delights of easy projects while stressed about writing up a thesis and job applications…

But hey, there is never a down side to more socks 🙂 Unless you don’t have the space in the drawer for them all…

Oh, and taking decent pics, I guess!

So, onto the socks: these are more jaywalkers, modified so I can do them toe up (I really do dislike cuff-down!) 2mm needles, 84 stitch pattern, yadda-yadda. At some point I need to write the toe-up pattern, as my friend who’s just starting to knit socks wants to knit some jaywalkers. Or she could knit them cuff-down. It would be a good experience for her…

More socks have been cast on (as mentioned on Wednesday). Again, I’m modifying a pattern to knit them toe-up, rather than cuff down. Fingers crossed they go well 🙂

  1. Very jealous of your cosy socks! There’s no such thing as too many socks! You just need a bigger sock drawer!

    • I know! But my wardrobe size is going to be limited for a while as I’m hoping to be getting a number of tempory 1 year jobs all over the place (except America and Russia and other LGBTQIA+ unfriendly places), so small wardrobe for ease of travelling!

  2. Super socks, they look lovely and warm. If I ever knit more socks they will be done two at a time as I find it so tricky to make them identical.

  3. Oh, I love making socks, too, only my toes always go through the end and it seems like a waste so I tend to make them for other people now. I’ve only ever knitted cuff down though; it’s interesting that you prefer toe-up:)

    • Try making them a smidge longer- your tes are probably going through them because the yarn is pulled too tight. Also, you can always pick the stitches up around the toe and reknit the toe. Hope you get better at them, everyone should have handknit socks!!!
