More New Socks

I made myself finish the second of the latest pair of socks before I would start my sweater. (I swore that knitting WILL NOT turn into yet another collection of unfinished projects!)

These are knit on the sock loom in a basketweave pattern out of Lang “Mille Colori” Socks and Lace superwash yarn. I doubt that I will use this brand of sock yarn again. I love the color, but there were so many slubs and very thin places that I am concerned about how the socks will wear.  DSC01381

I named them “Whovian” socks as they remind me of the multicolored knitted scarf that the Tom Baker Dr. Who always wore.

  1. They are very attractive socks and look comfy too. I hear what you say about thin spots and slubs as I knit too. It’s more accurate to say I used to be a knitting fiend prior to becoming a blogger. Now I don’t have the time for knitting but I won’t be giving up my boxes of wool because I usually knit something every winter. This winter I knit a sweater for a niece and this coming winter I’ll knit one for her sister.

  2. Janet, I love how these are obviously a pair through your yarn, pattern and colour choices, yet asymmetrical in the random design … such ‘artzy fartzy’ socks!!!
