Karen's Socks Done


I'm still working on Christmas socks for brother Dave and his partner Karen. Karen's are done.

I won't try to give an excuse why I'm still knitting Christmas socks in March. We'll just pretend it is OK.



Last year when I posted a picture of the cuff of these socks (see below), there were several people who wanted the pattern. It's not a pattern. It's a basic ribbed sock with an Alpine design running up each side. If you want to know more about it, it's explained in detail in a previous blog post here.


Here's a closeup picture of this beautiful yarn.



Pattern: Basic cuff down sock pattern on 64 stitches with Alpine motif down both sides.

Yarn: Cascade Heritage #9828.

Needles: Options #1, 2.5mm

Gauge: 8 stitches/inch, 10 rows/inch

The yarn is one of the prettiest that I've seen and the design you are using for this yarn is exquisite. She will adore these socks!

Those are just stunning. Maybe I'll go dig out my book of twisted stitches for my next pair of socks. Don't feel bad about them being Christmas socks. I've been known to give boxes of yarn for Christmas!
