I agree, everyone loves handmade socks.

And if I got a cent for every "Oh, why don't you knit some socks for me" comment I could afford at least the yarn for a pair of them ;)

Ohhh I remember the watermelon yarn you bought on a craft market, really cool color combination. But if I had to decide I would take the french brocade or the longitudinal - especially the last one have a very uncommon construction.
I am still on the not-sock side... but the desire to learn it grows :-D

·

Socks are great as "projects to go" because of their small size - suitable for every handbag. Come to the sock side, we have warm feet ;)

All the socks are impressive, @muscara... but that 'longitudinal' design is so different :D

·

That's why I wanted to try that pattern. Though I only did one sock - it was much too big. Even though I used the numbers for two sizes smaller than I wear it ended being two sizes bigger. And it's made in garter stitch so it will stretch... But one day I'll make a pair of it for me :)

I love your socks!! I love those watermelon and green as the grass socks! I would wear those cotton sneakers socks as slippers and make those Spider-Man socks for all my boys!! 😍

I love your sock mannequin too! That’s pretty cool to be able to display your socks that way. Thanks for showing us all of these lovely socks you made!

Side Note: I’m trying to reach you on Discord. Do you go by a different username?

I bought a pair of cheap "plastic feet" on ebay and gave on of them to a friend - I only needed one. But yes, it does make taking photographs so much easier.

wow !!!!!! what a variety of socks! You have a creative approach to knitting. I like everything !!!!!

·

Thank you. I made them during the last two years, not all at once.

When my sweater is ready, I would soon like to try on socks.

·

Socks are nice projects because of their size. And if you have understood the construction of them (especially of the heel) they are quite easy to do.

ja und jetzt mal so ein paar Steemit Socken? Würde wohl ein Paar davon nehmen 🤪

Meine Oma macht keine mehr - die kauft nun extern zu 🙄 früher war alles besser

·

Für andere Stricken ist wie Sex: Es gibt einen stark begrenzten Personenkreis da ist es umsonst, ansonsten nicht für alles Geld der Welt ;)

Schau mal in Garngeschäfte bei dir in der Nähe, es gibt immer noch welche die handgestrickte Socken zu Selbstausbeuter-Preisen anbieten.

Öhm... Danke für diese Metapher die nun Bezug zu meiner Oma kriegt... wähhhh...

Aber mach doch mal steemit Socken. Alle machen was mit Steemit... steemit Shirts, steemit Mützen, steemit raspberry Gehäuse... Strick dies Logo 🤪🤪🤪

Ooo I love all your socks @muscara!! You are so good at it! I especially love the Green as the grass, Cotton sneakers and Cable socks. Oh and I love how your Alpakka is opposites of each other :)

·
Thank you! The alpaca socks are made with (out of? Sometimes I hate English prepositions!) a Norwegian sockyarn with 70% alpaca - soooo warm and fuzzy. I had planned to make stripes but with its fuzziness the lines between the colors got blurred. So no stripes but just opposites ;)

And the green yarn is a favorite of mine though I like it especially in the mitts I crocheted with it - looks even more "grassy" :)

·

Hehe opposites are cute nonetheless. Ooo I love the mitts!!! Such a pretty yarn colour and the different green tones mixes very well too! You should open your own shop selling socks and mitts, if you haven't already :)
