Crayon Socks

Crayon socks

I finished these socks at work yesterday. Everyone really likes the colors. They were named crayon socks by a coworker. I have them happily on my feet today! I am almost exclusively wearing my own handknit socks and that makes me happy!

Crayon socks

Yarn: On Line Summer Color #792
Needles: Crystal Palace 2.25mm
64 stitches short row toe and heel
3 inches 2X2 ribbing
Russian bind off

I have been knitting on two pairs of socks at home this week.

Trekking Chevrons

I am totally loving this pattern!
And the yarn is funky - in a good way!

Walk in the Woods

This yarn color is called "Walk in the Woods." It is really living up to its name! The sage green, spruce, and brown of the trees and foliage, the blues of the sky and water. Makes me want to pull on my hiking boots and go up in the mountains!

a drawer full of my own hand knit socks sounds like a dream to me. I suppose I should start making more socks.

Again beautiful socks! I should try to finish mine soon. Do you use a short row heel when you knit toe up or a heel flap?
