New socks listed in my Etsy shop. I have listed two pairs. As soon as I started to take these pictures Tati stole the scene. I had to push him little by little out of the frame. And even then most of my pics had to be cropped so that the curls on top of his head wouldn´t show… So eager to participate ;-)
Basically I make two types of socks: thinner and thicker. These are thinner ones, the specialty ones as they require more work. With socks I usually pick yarn and pattern that I would use but end up selling them because I have so many pairs. I wear handknit socks everyday throughout summer and winter.
Do you remember this orange yarn? I bought it from Paris where sock yarn is actually very difficult to find. It is the perfect colour and softness. I wrote a post about it a long time ago. Still is the gem of my sock yarns.
This is what happens when you can´t be on both sides of the camera at the same time. This is me pointing to R where to focus and being overhelpful (perhaps a little imperious as well…).
Love decorative rib patterns for socks. You really can´t beat rib in socks but it doesn´t have to be boring old “two knit and two purl stiches”. Besides, you get to do less purl stitches (the lesser nice ones in my opinion) with these textured rib patterns. I call them lazy ribs.
These socks I won´t sell because something (or someone) mysterious happened to them. I noticed a small hole in one of the socks. I must admit that I suspect Tati. He hasn´t chewn anything but still I can´t find any other reason. Perhaps when he was a small puppy because these were finished around the time he came to live with us… It´s a pity even though they´re already amended. I wish he´d had a bite of those orange ones so that I´d have an excuse to keep them.

Oh well, have a nice week!

    Ooh, I am just seeing this post! Lovely socks – I like your rib pattern! Purling is so slow that I try to avoid it too, but maybe I need to learn to learn your lazy ribs :)
