Finished Socks!

Socks for momIn just 9 days I knit an entire pair of socks!! To be fair, they are knitted in aran weight yarn. Mom bought herself some Danskos at the outlet a while back and she likes them for flying because they are easy to take on and off. However, she has very narrow feet and found them to be pretty loose so she has been on the look-out for thick socks ever since. When I saw this aran weight superwash (Victoria by Spirit Trail) at Socks for momMd Sheep and Wool I knew that was the ticket. The Cable Twist pattern is great, just interesting enough. The socks will go in the mail to mom, a late birthday surprise. From there I am sure they will have many adventures with my world traveling parents! Ravtails here.
Socks for mom PS: What is it about red? I have enough trouble with color and photographing these was a dozy! None of these are actually right, oh well.


  1. My camera doesn’t take true color pictures either. Maybe it’s the light?

    The socks look good! Aran weight cable socks are my kind of sock.

  4. Your socks are great. I hope they sort out your mom’s Dansko issue because I know I LOVE my Danskos. I have 3 pairs.

    (PS, I got my sparkly clear “sock shoes” in the flip-flop aisle at K-Mart on sale for $8.00!)
