Finished Socks, New Socks, Everywhere There's Socks, Socks

I warned you at the start of the month.  There will be socks!

Homely socks

I finished my first pair of socks (first pair for the ESK Second Quarter CAL, third pair for the year) and got them blocked.  These are the Homely Socks knit in Teal Torch Knits Evelyn in Afternoon Tea on US 0's (2.0 mm).  I love the way the lightly speckled yarn worked with this pattern so much.  They were made to go together!

Old Sweatshirt Socks

As soon as I got the first pair of socks off the needles and onto the sock blockers, I cast on for the next.  These are Old Sweatshirt Socks (free pattern) knit in Madelinetosh Twist Light in Dopamine on US 1's (2.25mm).  I'm knitting the 66 stitch size for these.  They are a simpler design than the Homely Socks so I don't have to think as much while I knit them, but I do have to commit to the ribbing for the legs.  I know some people don't like ribbing, but I don't mind it once I get into the rhythm of it.  Not only are the entire legs of these socks ribbed, there are more stitches in them than usual to get the slouchy, loose look the designer was going for.  Things will be decreased back to normal sock numbers by the foot, which is knit in stockinette.  For now, we rib!
