I hope when you see I am knitting these very fall looking socks, you will say to yourself "boy that Carol is on top of things, knitting those just in time for the upcoming season".
Those of you with a good memory will recall that I started these several years ago. The first one was too big so I ripped it out and started over and then set it aside for awhile. I took it to Bavaria because socks are the perfect travel knitting project. Unless you drop one of your double points on the plane and it rolls back several rows and you have to ask half the passengers to look under their feet for your needle. But that hardly ever happens more than once on a flight.
Working with sock yarn is just plain darn satisfying. Watching to see how the colors will work themselves out as you go.
I do not like my socks to match, and so instead of finding the spot in the yarn where they would come out the same, I just start the second one where I left off with the first one.
There are many sock patterns out there. This one is my favorite. I always come back to it. It has a nice formula so you can be sure they fit properly. (Which I did not pay attention to when I started these the first time). It's really always best to do a swatch to check your gauge with something that you will want to fit correctly.
Here is a link if you are interested. Knit to Fit Socks. Or better yet, make a field trip to Lawrence and do yourself the favor of going into the Yarn Barn. They have the pattern there.
