Lonnie's Sport Socks
Hey Ya'll

Okay, the jest of it...I designed a pair of socks for Lonnie...I had to post them on here even if I am on bedrest!
As some of you know, I recently knit a pair of socks for Lonnie and he loves them! I've seen him washing and wearing them 3 times a week! Yes, I'm hanging my head these were the only socks I'd ever knit for him!
That said I had to not only knit another pair for him, but design a pair! Lonnie enjoys short socks, they can easily be lengthened in the leg, I would suggest another ball of yarn should you choose to lengthen. These are a simple 4 st/ 4 row slip st pattern, easily memorized. I think that this pattern would look nice with solid or variegated yarn. I have several discontinued colorways of KnitPicks hand painted merino sock yarn in my sock yarn stash and he picked one of these (yes, hand wash socks, but that's okay, my Baby is worth it!).
Oh, almost forgot, I wrote the pattern for 5 size 1 dpns, but it can easily be adapted to your favorite form of socknitting (I actually knit mine with 2 circs ) Don't ya love this girly picture...I didn't put it in with the pattern, though! The pattern can be found on my design blog.

I'm headed to the doc again tomorrow, hopefully he will allow me up more, if so you will be seeing more of me around here! Goodness, bedrest stinks, it doesn't sound like it..but it sure does make you tired!

I miss ya'll so much You are the BEST

That is so cute that Lonnie wore the first pair of socks you made for him so often. I'm sure he'll be glad to have another set in rotation. Thanks for sharing the pattern with us -- it's so refreshing to see some man socks that aren't too boring (like plain stockinette and ribbing).

Hope your appt goes well tomorrow, Rebecca, so that your doc let's you be up more. We miss you!

There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman

That's so cool that he loves your socks. I'm sure he'll love these, too. They look great.

So sick, eh? I had been wondering about your lack of posts recently.
