My first pair is a simple pair of k2, p2 socks for Hubby.
My second pair is done. I casted on for this late in May, and they've been laying around with just the toes and the targets left. So yesterday I pulled myself together and finished them. And I'm so happy with how they turned out :) I've named them Wildflower target after the name of the yarn I've used for the targets.
This is my third pair in the 52 pair plunge. A pair of socks for my two year old son. He wanted red socks and as I showed him some yarn, he chose this lovely yarn, from Drops Fabel. I made the pattern available for download as well...it is free.
I must be crazy. I signed up to do 52 pairs of socks in one year, yet I haven't even knit 52 pairs of socks in my life. I don't know what makes me think I can do it in a year, but I'm going to try. Here's my first pair:
These were a kal sponsored by Wendy at Knitters Brewing Co. They're knit with Trekking XXL in color 147 on 2.25mm KnitPicks circular needles. The beads form a butterfly motif.
So pair #3! We have here the Ric-Rac Rib pattern from the Little Box of Socks. The yarn is Cascade 220 Quatro. Knit on 3.75mm needles. Fun pattern, but the knitting into the back of the second stitch on the needle and then knit the first stitch as normal really hurt my hands. Pair #4! We have Baby's First Sock by Ann Budd. Yarn is Sirdar Snuggly 4ply, and knit on 2.5mm needles. Fun, but starting the round with purl stitches hurts my brain. I didn't use the pattern on the sole of the foot because I wanted to stop the purling!
