I’ve been participating in Socks with Sarah, verrrrry slowly. Most days I only knitted one row. I finally finished my first sock. I’ve been making Tennarisukka ankle socks. The pattern for the socks is free, and they have really fun texture. They fit really nicely and are much cuter than the white sports socks I wear all the time. These are definitely my new favorite socks.

Socks with Sarah is a year-long knit-a-long (KAL). The goal of this KAL is to knit at least a little bit on a sock everyday for the next year. I’ve been wanting to make my sock drawer more exciting for quite some time, but I get a little bored making socks. I decided this would be a good way to make sure I make them. I plan on going slow and steady and making lots of other things. The KAL started today, so I cast on the second sock to match this cutie I made a couple of months ago. The pattern is here.
Before our wedding, I secretly knitted a pair of socks for my husband. I gave them to him the morning of the wedding so he wouldn’t get “cold feet.” I knitted the socks using the Deborah Norville Collection Serenity Garden Yarn in Twilight. I loved how the color work turned out, and the yarn feels amazing. I used a free pattern available on Ravelry titled “Basic Ribbed Socks.” The pattern was easy to follow. I didn’t make any adjustments to the pattern. He married me, so I guess he didn’t get cold feet!
Time Required: About 20 movies
Overall Experience: Good. The only thing I didn’t like is how the socks came together at the toe. The joining technique caused a slightly pointed toe.
