Sock knitting isn't sewing

And neither is knitting hats, or spinning, but alas, I've been doing more of those things and less of the sewing than I should be. On the up-side, I've finally finished a pair of socks that I first mentioned back in April. Yep, these socks took me FOREVER. But now I'm on a roll! All I want to do is knit socks! But I can't, as I have several other things on the go that I want to finish before I start anything new (like that dress that's almost done...).

Pair #2 of Mr. Social's 12 pairs in 2012 are finished. I'm really glad he likes these colours too, as beige is a little too vanilla for me (I like my socks to the bright and bold, eye searing colours).

The pattern I used for these is Wendy D. Johnson's Diagonal Lace Socks, from her book Socks from the Toe Up. That's right, lace socks for a dude. But you know what? He likes them, and he's happy with them, and he'll wear them, just like the ones I knit for him before.

Wearing lace socks do not make you less of a man
So, that's 2 down, 10 to go. I can totally do this...


  1. My Mr. would totally rock lace socks too. Our Mr.s rock.
