Socks

Just finished up three pairs of socks that I will give to my brother and sisters for their birthdays. I lost the label for the sock on the left, the middle one is Opal, and the one on the right is Zauberball. I used my mother's recipe with 2.25mm needles.

No secret to it at all. It is just a top down sock and if you look for vintage sock patterns that is what you will probably find.

Joe, I have tried all manner of making socks and always return to this one because it fits me so nicely and I can turn out a pair without much thought.

That's the whole premise

That's the whole premise behind hand knit socks - a great fitting sock that feels wonderful on your foot and is fairly easy to knit. [From my point of view, at least.]

Beautiful! I forget that

Beautiful!
I forget that people knit short socks...I'm so used to knitting boot socks...

Yes, Bill, I started the heel

Yes, Bill, I started the heel at 7 inches. I imagine your boot socks would be 12 or 14 and have a turned over cuff.
