I Love Sock Knitting

Written by Sarah. Posted in DIY, knits, socks, style

I’m not going to lie. I stopped posting because I started making socks. And I haven’t stopped.
I always swore that I’d never make socks. Mainly I didn’t like the idea of them eventually getting holes in them. All that work for nothing! Also, I hate entrelac and silly lace socks. I really like plain old socks with cool colors. Maybe even chunky socks. Oh, and I don’t like pictures of feet. Mostly pictures of my feet.

Anyway, I made socks. And everyone is right. Socks are amazing. This is my first pair. I adapted this cable sock pattern to make a pair for Jon. I took the cables out of them for something a little bit more modern-business. I got a gorgeous skein of Madeline Tosh Pashmina in Mare. I definitely can’t stay away from MadTosh. It’s my favorite yarn and I won’t knit anything else!
I’m really happy with my first pair. They knit up really quickly and, once again, everyone’s right, they really are great for commuter knitting. And since then, I’ve made two more pairs for myself.
Sock knitting, love it or hate it?

First post: Birthday Sweater

Written by Sarah. Posted in knits

I recently finished this sweater for Jon’s birthday and I think he looks great in it! The pattern is from Erika Knight’s Men’s Knits which is such a beautiful book. The navy rows are a special pattern of 2, 14, and 10 which represent our anniversary, February 14th.

It took a long time to finish on size 3 needles and I finished half of it without him knowing. Anyway, I’m so proud of it and I’m excited to keep him warm!
