I’m really enjoying knitting socks. Perfect sized project for warmer weather. I finished my 2nd pair today.
Panda Cotton from Crystal Palace Yarn. It’s 59% bamboo, 25% cotton, 16% elastic. Knits up really soft feeling. I used a set of size 2 DP needles.
On this pair I used a moss stitch ribbing for the body of the sock. I’ve learned socks have several parts. The cuff, the body, the heel, the foot and the toe. I’ve learned I don’t care for the band heel, but I love the origami toe. And I truly must find a different way to finish socks off other than the Kitchener stitch…..truly I must!
Notice the different color pattern in the left sock to the right? Not sure why that happened, but I think it’s interesting! One more pair of variegated and maybe my knitting will be pretty enough again to do a pair of solid color socks!

Nice socks – I love the one pair I made. I need to get started on a second pair.
Oh those are pretty !! I haven’t knitted or crocheted for years .. cuz of the arthritis in my thumbs. I sat here pretending to knit to see what about it hurts my thumbs ,.. I think maybe just having them in the same position until they freeze. Don;t know. still have some needles (actually LOTS of needles), so just may try it again. Like I don’t have other things to do !!
