Two socks have come off my needles recently. Sadly, they’re both first socks so I don’t have a new pair to wear, but at least both second socks have already been cast on. First to get done was my Rose City Roller, only I called it my Nebraska Roller since this yarn came from our college visit road trip.
I’ve slipped it on and can already tell I’m going to love how short it is! I’m kind of hoping I can get two pairs of socks out of one skein. The yarn is Indigo Boulevards 2-ply sock in color Lost Diadem.
The second sock is my Girl Power sock, which FLEW off the needles. I could not stop knitting this sock!
I love everything about this sock. Everything. The yarn is perfect. The pattern is simple and fits well and is perfect. The gray is the perfect accent to the bright colors. LOVE. Yarn is Show Me Yarn Boot Heel in color Girl Power, pattern is Vanilla Latte.
And then somehow I managed to buy another skein of yarn. I know! It’s crazy. Even crazier? The husband was right there with me when I bought it! We went on a little day trip to downtown Lawrence, Kansas and had to stop at the Yarn Barn of course, and this skein of Malabrigo Sock called my name big time.
I decided that rather than feel guilty for buying more yarn, I would celebrate the fact that I only bought one skein!
Love it! Socks are one of my favourite things to make. I find I can’t put them down once started!
Me neither!! 🙂
I did a pair of Rose City Rollers this year and am ready to declare it my new favorite sock pattern:)
I think it’ll definitely be in my top 3!
I just love the low profile so I can wear wool socks year round for warmth and people won’t be able to notice as mucg
That is an awesome skein of Malabrigo! So pretty.
And I love the finished socks! They both look like they’ll be amazing to wear.
It’s all about how you look at it. Ha ha. I love your socks. They both have happy cheery colors
All are looking gorgeous!
