Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,
Warning: My daughter’s feet have grown! These socks are sized for women and yes, my daughter is still 10 years-old for another week. However, her feet are now a women’s size 7. Her height will catch up to her feet I am sure.
I am giving a quick peek at the sock pattern I have been working on. These are the bigger version of the Ribbed Socks for Kids pattern from last summer. I will have the bigger pattern available very soon. This ribbed sock pattern is a tried and true pattern for a cuff down, heel flap sock that I have used forever and a day when I knit socks. It is a standard sock pattern, very simple and straight forward. I have made fancy socks, stockinette socks, ankle socks, knee socks, striped and lace socks. This simple rib sock is by far my most favorite sock in the world. I have a drawer spilling over with this exact same ribbed sock. I love the way they work up and most importantly I love how they feel and wear on my feet.
I have a feeling you might like knitting and wearing these socks, too.
I like my sock cuffs to be about 6-inches long. I used two skeins of Fine but had lots left over so you could easily make the cuff quite a bit longer. No problema.
If you haven’t knit with our gorgeous fingering weight yarn line yet you are missing out. It is wonderful to work with, squishy, has a slight sheen due to the silk, and they wear like nothing else. The stitch definition is divine and crisp. You will love knitting with Fine. I guarantee it.
The next pair I have on the needles right now is a stripey cuff ribbed sock. I am almost at the toe and then that toe will just fly off my needles. Oh, and those colors? The. Best. Can you imagine these worked up in the new Fine colors of Shitake and Red Hot? I can and I will!! I would like these with the red as the main color and with the shitake as the main color. I may have to make 2 pairs. I am liking those colors together so much. Maybe a striped hat, too!
By the way, my sheep sock blockers are from the Loopy Ewe. I have had them for at least a few years and I love them. I am extra excited to say that the Loopy Ewe now is selling Spud & Chloë yarns. That’s way cool.
I’ll be back with this standard rib sock pattern for women in a short while.
Hope you are well, friends.
p.s. The black mary jane shoes are Dansko and I have had them for at least 3 years now. I loved them so much I bought a pair in red, too. I don’t know if they still make this style:)
