Plain Striped Socks (Kaffe Fassett)


Design: 60 stitch socks, slip stitch heel

Yarn: Regia Kaffe Fassett Design Line
Fibre: 75% wool, 25% nylon
Colour: 4259 Fire Landscape
Needles: 2.5mm KnitPro DPN

There's not really a lot I can say about plain stocking stitch socks, because they're just that - plain. They'd be quite boring to knit too, if they weren't in such great self striping yarn. Yes, it's Kaffe Fassett again - I just love the colour use, and the intensity of the shades. And with the weather we've been having, one can never have too many pairs of hand knit wooly socks!

Hmm, I do believe I like those socks, grin. I do like knitting with that yarn and it is comfy on the feet, enjoy them. BarbM

I love those socks I am on a bit of a sock knit myself at the moment and am waiting for some wool to knit some just for me! How do you finish off your toe bit?
I need a new way to do mine!

A very happy Christmas Nic and the very bests for 2010, Health and Happiness
