Another Pair Of Socks

This is a pair that I finished yesterday. I did try to match up the stripping again this time and think it came out pretty well. I hope you guys aren’t getting tired of seeing socks. I don’t post them on here for praise, but just to share my work with you guys. The guild that I’m in is starting a KAL this month for the Ten Stitch Triangle. The Ravelry link is:; hopefully I’ll have something to show that is different later on.

I have a shawl that’s been on the needles for a while, but can’t get the mojo going to start back on it. It’s the Summit Shawl on Ravelry. The link is: They’re both free patterns. The Summit is kind of fun to knit, so I don’t know why I keep putting it off. Unless, of course, it’s because it’s been socks, socks, socks with me for the past several months, lol.

I love those socks, I've only made three pair, just basic socks. I haven't ventured into the patterned socks yet. But, for some reason...I keep buying sock yarn. HMMMM!

Thank you, Terry. You can never have too much sock yarn; in my opinion, anyway. The self-striping yarn does all the work for you. Hope to see some of your sock work sometime.

This is the perfect season to open up the MWK Web site and see a new pair of sock. It makes me feel nice and warm. I really like the color choice. Isn't self-striping yarn great? You did a great job matching the color striping. I have a few ideas for some socks waiting in the wings until I finish two projects on my needles. I may be bugging you for some advice. Your stitching is very controlled and exact, something I feel mine lack. Well done, Calvin!

Thank you, Mark. I agree, self-striping yarn is wonderful. I think we're very fortunate to live in an age where we have all these wonderful yarns to knit with. Any questions you may have, please ask.

I can never tire of seeing hand knitted socks. Each and every stitch of this pair looks so good and even. Hope they fit well and are nice to wear...Thanks for the compliments of my sock work, Calvin.

I mainly knit socks and often surprise my friends when I don't. Very nice work.
