I started to knit these socks on the drive to and from Lori Foster’s Reader-Author Get-Together in June. (I was riding, not driving!) I finished the second toe on the last pair, so cast these on. As usual, this is my own sock pattern, the one I don’t have to think about anymore, and as usual, I’ve used a self-striping yarn.
This yarn is Patons Kroy Socks. Once upon a time, Kroy was available in a 3-ply yarn in solid colours. Now it seems to all be 4-ply, whether it’s solid or self-striping. I like the thicker version better – it feels more squooshy, although it does make a thicker sock. This is one of my favourite colourways of Kroy Socks, Summer Moss Jacquard. (Although I see on the Patons’ site that there are colours I haven’t seen before and like a lot – I’ll have to keep a lookout for Meadow Stripes, Mexicala Stripes and Fiesta Stripes.) I actually have enough of this colourway stashed to make a cardigan – the trick will be ensuring that the pieces are narrow enough so that the stripes work out well. I’m thinking I’ll have to put a seam down the centre back to make it work. Hmm. I did knit a pair of socks for Mr. Math in this colour of yarn, as well. (Ewww, now we can match!)
And here they are:
Wow, I feel so lucky. I have two new pairs of socks for the fall!
What do you think?
