I Gots Socks

Has it ever happened to you that your fallback project, intended for times when you couldn't concentrate enough to work on your important project, became the only thing you felt like doing?  So, while I have numerous works-in-progress and deadlines to meet, I have new socks.

The pattern is really simple, as befits a fallback project: Socks on a Plane by Laura Linneman, available on Ravelry.  Except, I substituted the Fish Lips Kiss Heel, also available on Ravelry, because that's the heel I always do.  The yarn is Patons Kroy Socks, color Sunburst Stripes.  I have no idea if that is still available.  

When I started, I didn't realize how loooong those color repeats would be.  The second skein didn't start in the same place as the first one, but I think I did a good job finding a place to begin the second sock so they more or less match.

They actually fit and look good, so I am happy.  But now I have to go back to all those things I was supposed to be doing, sigh.


  1. Those are some really snazzy socks, Martha. I do admire how you got them to match too. I’m very jealous. Hope you get your other tasks sorted so you can get back to socking again!!!

  3. You did a very good job of matching the colours, splendid socks. I know what you mean, I’ve just finished my fall back socks but not decided what to get on with next.

  4. Magnificent! Your socks are an envy.

  5. They look great! I knit but I've never made socks. Partly because I hate wearing socks!

  6. Awesome socks! And I know what you mean about the fallback project getting more progress than the regular stuff... I do that a lot.
