View Full Version : Bad Day socks

10-24-2006, 06:09 PM
A friend of mine has had a streak of bad days and bad things recently and I wanted to do something special for her, so I'm making her socks. They're very simple, because I'm using Regia jacquard and I thought any stitch pattern would be overwhelmed by the colorway. Anyway, I hope she'll like them. One down, one to go!

Can't have a bad day wearing hand knit socks! :cheering:

I really do hope she'll love them. She's a knitter, too, but thinks that socks are "too hard." These are special, too, because they're my first "real" pair -- i.e. fingering weight yarn and size 2 needles. I've done socks in worsted weight on 6s before and in DK weight and sport weight, but these are my first fingering weight "real" socks. I know she'll appreciate the time that went into them and I hope it will inspire her to make the jump into making her own socks.

There is nothing like wearing hand knit socks, it is like your feet are LOVED or something. I am wearing mine today and when I was walking to go pick up my daughter from preschool this morning I just felt like my feet were being hugged. It is a cool feeling. I could just be overly senimental and nostalgic too.
