Some background.. My LYS has social knitting nights and I go on Fridays. One of the women created these socks for us to do as a group project. Last Saturday we had a workshop to learn the techniques (if we didn't know them) and next Sat we are having a party at the LYS after hours to start our adult size socks...and eat and chat and whatever..:teehee:

We are making them out of Plymouth Encore DK in whatever crazy colors we want. Most of them have colors similar to mine. They are toe up with a garter stitch short row heel and they will intentionally not match. I plan on adding the slipper sole with fleece to mine and using them for slippers.

So here's the first baby sock I made in preparation for the adult size. Lots of mistakes in this one, but hopefully I learned something so the adult size will be fine. ;) The pattern is not available yet, but will be a Ravelry download which I'll share when it's ready.

That is the coolest thing! I love it. I can't wait for the download. Should be a pretty quick knit, too, in Encore, right?

The baby sock was a quick knit for sure so I'm sure the adult one will go pretty fast. Yes, Encore DK.

Thanks!

I love the sock. The colors remind me of a box of crayons.

As far as I know it's just the sampler size and adult in two sizes, but once you learn the techniques involved (pretty easy) you can apply it to any size sock I would think.

Thanks to all! It IS bright, but for a house sock it'll be fun!

I'm sitting here with a smile on my face...that is such a cute sock! I know I shouldn't be thinking about Christmas:eyes: ...but that would be a cute slipper for my 5 year old granddaughter!!
Good job, can't wait to see your adult size one!

That is so cute! I can see why it's called a "party sock". What a great way to learn new techniques.
