I know many people love to knit socks and since I’ve recently been bit by the sock bug, I thought I’d start a thread where we could discuss all things socks!
So here is my first pair
I researched for years before starting these last month. I learned that I prefer 2 circs for small circles, so I used a pattern called Basic Socks on Two Circulars with yarn Loops and Threads Perfect Pair in Glory Days. I also love the look and heard so many good things about the Fish Lips Kiss heel, so I used that. Finally, since I have small fiber Neuropathy, I had researched about the bumps of stockinette next to the sole and heard about the princess sole, reverse stockinette, and decided to try it. Finally, since the first 3 toes on my feet are almost the same length, I modified the toe decreases to prefecture match mine (most of the decreasing was done on one side, so I have a very obvious right and left sock) My cuff is slightly loose and I wish the patterning matched better (I’m particular about matching things), but all in all I love my first pair.
On my next pair, using the rest of the above yarn, I’m changing how much of the 2nd needle actually gets reverse stockinette. And I’m using the Hermione Socks pattern to add a little visual interest
So let’s talk patterns, techniques, etc. Show off your WIPs and FOs!
