Crazy Woman Socks

And another pair done!


Project Details:

Pattern: my own jerry rigged sock pattern, tweaked over the years. Plain vanilla socks. I cast on 60 stitches at the cuff. Top down, flap and gusset heel, nothing fancy.

Yarn: Mountain Colors Weaver's Wool quarters, color is Crazy Woman. This is not superwash wool, so these will have to be handled a little more carefully, but it is lovely, squishy stuff. It's about sport weight.

Needles: 2.75 mm sterling silver double points from Celtic Swan.

Started: January 9, 2014

Finished: November 28, 2014

For: Me!

What I Learned: I've learned that I really should be knitting socks faster. I've got an aging sock stash that are starting to wear pretty thin. These will be very appreciated given the cold weather we've been having.

I was snooping around online at shops that sell this yarn. I opened up the handy dandy yarn database that catalogues the yarn I already have. I have this same yarn in eight more colors, to make eight more pairs of smooshy warm socks. Maybe I'll go cast on another pair right now.


Crazy Woman Socks — 5 Comments

  1. I’m making socks for myself, too. Maybe all the holiday planning for everyone else makes us a mite greedy?

  2. I have lots of socks and lots of sock yarn to make more! I am on a sock knitting hiatus. I think I only made four pair this year. Maybe, I will go back to one pair a month next year. I dunno. I have some sweaters I want to make. Decisions…

  3. Handle them very carefully, many years ago my mother-in-law shrank two pairs of mine. Luckily I had a friend with very small feet!
