New Socks

DSC05080
Since I finished up Damson so quickly, I started a new pair of socks for Mickael. He seems to be enjoying the last pair I knit for him and I've even caught him shuffling through his sock drawer looking for other handknit wool socks, so he deserves more socks. The yarn is Dream in Color Smooshy in Grey Tabby. The needles are my new Blackthorn's (these needles are the pointiest needles I've ever worked with). The pattern is New Fallen Snow (from the Visions of Sugarplums collection) which I've adjusted to fit Mickael's foot.

Caleb actually picked out the pattern from Ravelry. I was doing a search of sock patterns that didn't have lace (I can't remember all the other filters I used, just not lace) and Caleb was helping me find one that would suit Mickael. I had already decided I didn't want to knit a plain, grey sock, but any pattern or texture had to be subtle. As we were going through the socks, Caleb saw my New Fallen Snow sock and immediately said that was the one - he didn't even know it was my design! I'm calling these Tabby in the Snow socks while I'm working on them, but I'm sure Mickael would rather they be called Warlord of Doom socks. Or something.

It just occurred to me that I may or may not have ever explained how to adjust a sock pattern for a different size foot. Have I ever done that here? Would you be interested in that as a blog post? Let me know in the comments and if enough people are interested, I'll work it up.

The socks are looking lovely - how nice it must have felt to have him select your pattern from all those available!

Oh yes please, I have very large feet (blush) and that is why I have never knit a pair of socks. It would break my heart to do all that work and then have to frog it because it doesn't fit...

Yes. I slavishly follow patterns and doing the math for changes makes my head hurt, which means there are many patterns which are lost to me.

I'd love to see that too. I have a very narrow foot, and 64 stitches can often be too big for me...grrr.

Thanks for re-showcasing these sock patterns. I love them both. I will need to spend some time on Ravelry looking at your other patterns!
