Socks, Socks, Socks!

by Aimee on August 18, 2011

I haven’t knit a pair of socks in ages! But in the last month I have knit 3 pairs. One for the “Couldn’t Foot it Challenge” for those of us who couldn’t make it to Sock Summit. Sometimes you just have to knit a pair of socks in 3 days.

I also designed 2 new sock patterns as part of the Camp Loopy 2011 KAL. Two? Yes. 2. See, I was traveling for work, but I bought this gorgeous yarn – Madeline Tosh in colorway Isadora – and off I went. I knit the Campfire Songs – they were everything I wanted. They reminded me of…campfires. You know, singing songs and scarfing s’mores. yum.

I was so very excited! And then I re-read the prompt and it included cables! Oops! Guess I have to order more yarn and knit another pair of socks. Oh, darn!

Another order to The Loopy Ewe! Some gorgeous Lorna’s Laces Soulmate in Whisper arrived at the house and then Love Knots appeared on my needles.

A special thank you to Heather who helped me name these socks!

I had such a great time designing these! I have plans for some knee highs in MadTosh (because if you haven’t knit with MadTosh – well, get on that! It is AMAZING!). My love of sock knitting has been rekindled!

So glad you came out, had a blast!
Love the new design here… you may have inspired me to refresh mine a bit.
