Knitting, Spin the yarn

Handspun socks? I made it!

Ok, so I tried to take a nice photo my socks fresh off the needles, but failed. I partly blame my dog, who tried to eat my toes in the process… But here they are, my first ever handspun socks! And I love them!

Ok, let´s talk facts:

I think I spun the yarn some time in spring 2015. I started the socks in July 2015… That´s almost 2 years ago… so about time the socks got finished! I´m so pleased with this project! The wool was bought from Tante Ull. I believe it´s a merino/nylon mix, but I have long since lost the card with the info… So… the facts are a bit blurry…

But, I know the yarn is a 3-ply, I used 2.5mm needles, and the pattern is called Monkey Socks by Cookie A. It has this nice pattern throughout the socks that is easy to remember. The yarn is a bit busy, and the pattern is a bit lost in the yarn, but it kept it interesting. So totally worth it!

But I did a grafted toe…

…and my usual heel.

And that was that.

  1. Beautiful hands pun socks Lena! I’m impressed. BTW! I love your heel. I made it back when you had a mystery KAL and it’s the only one I use. It keeps the heel in the right place and doesn’t slip!

    1. Thank you Charlene! I´m happy you like the heel. It´s the one my mother taught me, and even though I sometimes stray, I always come back to it.
