Socks that Rock, and Pirate’s Booty

Filed under: baby knitting,knitting,socks — by tricotchick @ 6:52 am

It’s been a busy summer! Sorry about not posting for quite awhile. I’ve been trying to concentrate on one project, and I was able to do that. Unbelievable!

I made some socks for my dad, which I just finished on Friday. They are ragg wool, a denim colorway. I also made a baby blanket 3 years or so ago for my nephew out of this same yarn. The socks, with a busy schedule, took almost exactly 3 months to make, but they are done! Voila!

I have started my next project. There are a lot of pregnant women at work lately! One is about due, and so this will be late, but I had to finish the socks first! It’s the Baby Yours pattern. I’m using the Socks that Rock medium weight yarn (100% superwash merino) in the Pirate’s Booty colorway! I’m going to have to apologize to the recipient in advance if her child turns out to be mischievous!

So far it’s working out alright. You start out with several rows of garter stitch, which is very relaxing. Then you get into the pattern. The center part is a cabled section. The left and right parts are a k2 p2 check pattern. Cool!
Have a great rest of your weekend!
