Because I have to have someone to share them with!
Here are some socks I did for my five-year-old. I did them with Cascade Fixation, which for those of you who don't know, is a cotton yarn with some elastic in it. I thought I was a wool-only girl, but I just loved this yarn for kids socks. They are probably the best-fitting socks I've ever made. I did them toe-up in a basic 2 x 2 rib with a picot bind off.
Here are Steve's boring work socks all finished. They turned out well - fit great, feel nice and look good. These were a 3 x 1 rib (finished in 1 x 1 rib for 1 1/2 inches or so). I used this pattern, which is my new go-to sock pattern. Sigh. Why don't guys like lace? I am the model in this pic, so the socks don't fit as snugly as they do on Steve.
And, some Basic Dude Socks I made for my dad for Christmas. I don't think he reads my blog. I'll have to warn my mom not to read this when my dad is in the room! These socks are made with worsted weight yarn (actually, three strands of sock yarn twisted together). They knit up VERY fast. I could get used to this! Again, I'm the sock model here, so they look baggier than they will be on my Dad.
And, that's it for finished objects. I've cast on some little socks for my baby for Christmas, which I think will also work up quickly, seeing as his little feet aren't very big.
Well, I'm off to knit!
