Socks on Parade, Part Two!

Two more socks for you my Knitbloglandia buds!

First up -

Christmas in February Socks

Last year during our entrelac challenge over at SKA I knit these

My partner in crime fellow mod Bettina went so crazy for them that I promised to knit her a pair which I sent to Germany for Christmas in February!


Pattern: Annetrelac Socks

Yarn: Schaefer Heather in the Cranberry Kiss colorway ( I ♥ ♥ ♥ this yarn!!)

Needles: US #1 (2.25mm) and US #0 (2.0mm) 32" addi turbo circs, magic loop method

It's a super easy pattern that looks much harder than it is! I used a little bit heavier yarn than the pattern suggested so I made a ton of mods - all deets on on my Rav page (link above).

Bettina loved them and they are a perfect fit, see.....? (actual Bettina feet, woo hoo!)

And now for something completely different I give you....more socks!

Juicy Mystery Socks


Pattern: March Mystery Sock by Kristi Schueler of Designedly Kristi fame

Yarn: Sereknity Yarn and Fiber Sock Options Shimmer Merino & Bamboo in the Seriously Citrus colorway - Again LOVE!!!! (as an aside, I am completely enamored of bamboo blend sock yarn - it's so smooth and cool on the needles and the feet!)

Needles: US# 1 (2.25mm) Hiya Hiya 32" circs, magic loop method.

This was a very interesting and fun Mystery Sock with a cool Cast On/Bind off. We started the sock on waste yarn and added a knitted on I-cord after the whole sock was completed! A new and interesting construction from one of my favorite designers and bloggers, BUT IT STILL NEEDS A NAME KRISTI!! :)

Thus ends this week's installment of "Socks FKD has been too lazy too post". The parade continues next week :)

But WAIT!!

A certain handsome kitteh boy has a BIRTHDAY this week!

My P-Man turns FIVE next Friday!!

Happy Birthday baby boy!

There isn't a sweeter lil chubler kitteh than you!

See ya next week! :)
