My first knitting project was socks. I quickly became a sock addict. I live in Canada and I prefer thick socks that fit well in winter boots. As a result I've experimented with different types of sport weight and worsted yarns, and avoided thinner 'sock yarns.' I love fair isle and lace patterns the most. I started off using Paton's Merino, but after my husband shrank a pair of his size 14 socks, I discovered Mission Falls 1824 washable merino. They're a Canadian company and theirs is my favourite sock yarn.
This pair is made with Mission Falls washable merino.
As was this one.
This pair, with the matching toque (yes, odd combo, I know!) was for me. The sock pattern was from Nancy Bush's Folk Socks.
This last pattern is an original design.
And that's it for today.
