Well I’m not really sure that I have a sock addiction 🙂 but I haven’t made any socks for a long time and from time to time I get a craving to make some more.
I normally force myself to resist this temptation because I have enough already but recently I discovered that both my daughter and granddaughter have the same size feet as myself and would both love me to knit them a pair of socks.
I have a stash of sock wool because of some that has been passed on to me for free, Yay! so I offered my daughter a choice of yarn.
and she said that she preferred the one on the left.
Here are the pair I made her. It’s hard to get socks to look good when lying flat which is why when I knit them for myself I also photograph them being worn!
I have actually bought some more sock wool to make a pair for my granddaughter and when I know how long she would like her socks to be, compared to her mother’s (her mother wanted fairly short ones!), I will start a pair for her.
I could have used the wool to the right in the picture at the top but I thought maybe it wasn’t quite her sort of colours.
I do like Regia sock yarn!
