Ankle Socks!
 
Thanks for the reminder, AuntCrafty! :)

We've decided to do something we can use for the summer.

ANKLE SOCKS!

If you've never knit socks before, you can see an excellent online tutorial created by our own amazing Silver.

I'm planning on finishing up a pair I started a long time ago for my oldest son. And I'm casting on another pair for my middle son. I might even make a pair for myself! cloud9

Here's the red pair I've been working on, using the "One Skein Sockettes" pattern:

And I want to use the "Ankle Socks" pattern for my other son.

Also, I have some nice colorful Plymouth Sockotta yarn in my stash that I've been wanting to use for a pair for me! The yarn has bright yellow, pink, and orange - PERFECT for summer!


If you need to find more patterns, just check out Ravelry, or look at Knitting Pattern Central. Here are a few I found:

Lacy Ankle Socks - 'Vog On
Pom Pom Socks - Alison's Ankle Socks
Bernat Ankle Socks
Vintage Ankle Socks
Lacy "Breeze" Socks
Chunky Ankle Socks (for a faster knit)
Fancy Girl's Ankle Socks
Patons Lace Ankle Socks

Happy Ankle Sock Knitting!
:muah:

:muah: Thank you!

I think I would like to do this one. I've wanted to try adult sized socks, so this would be a great way to try.

Hmmmm, now to decide on which pattern.

I have that EXACT same color!

I'm going to join with the socks I started like a year ago for a friend. I won't make any for me cuz I don't like ankle socks. But I'm sure she will love them and the first one is almost done. They are slipper socks... (hey she lives in NH and with the summer they are having she might use them in the summer too... :teehee:)

After I make those, I might make one for a friend's daughter, cuz she just deserves some...

i might hop on this one, i've wanted to get going on a pair of slipper socks for myself for a long time. the only problem is i have size 5 1/2 feet so everything is big on me...

Depending on how you do it you'd just make them shorter and use less stitches around the foot/ankle. :thumbsup:
