These kneesocks were my contribution to SnB. The socks in the book (seen here were knit up in Brown Sheep Co's Nature Spun Sport, which is admittedly more widely available to folks in the US. But the Silje yarn is available through jklneedles and I like it.

Yarn :: Bambino ull from idena
Pattern from Judy Gibson here.
The second pair of toe-up socks I made, using the figure 8 cast on this time. These socks now belong to my father who always says he wants purple when you ask him what color he prefers. The making of these socks was chronicled here.

Yarn :: Bambino ull from idena
Pattern from Judy Gibson here.
My first pair of toe-up socks, made with a "reverse star toe" that I kind of guessed at as I went along. I just love the way the stripes make them matching, yet individual. These socks have held up very well.

Yarn :: Lion Brand Wool-Ease, color :: Wheat 402.
The ones on the left were made for my then 8 year old stepdaughter who requested tube socks. They’re knitted for the leg in k2, p2 rib on 36 sts on size 3.25mm needles then I changed to a spiral rib for the foot and closed it with a “star toe”. The socks on the right were for her 12 year old sister who wanted regular type socks. These are basic socks with the leg and the top of the foot in k2, p2 rib with a round heel knit using heel stitch.

Yarn :: Rauma's Finullgarn
Pattern :: Merike’s socks from Folk Socks.
I used dark cherry, white and two colors of red that I had leftover from other projects. I really like the braiding above and below the ribbing at the top of these socks.
Update :: these socks have been darned twice and finally developed too large a hole to repair. This yarn needs a reinforcing yarn on heels and toes to be good to use as a sock yarn.
