My First FO in a While

Hooray! I finally finished these stress knitting socks for myself.


I love the yarn and the colorway - it's Regia Random Stripe that I got from Rhinebeck this year. 


All in all, they're okay socks - but they sag at the ankle and heel! It's hard to tell from these photos, but as I was wearing them I noticed it.  It sort of makes me feel like an emaciated old lady!

I guess my ankles are just skinnier than my feet.  Who knew? Next time, I'll decrease a few extra stitches at the gusset to make sure the sock sticks.  Another alternative (I think) would be to make the sock longer so that it hits the thicker part of my calf - but I really like the shorter height. 

And, if the socks bother me that much, I'll just give them to my mom :P


  1. I like the colour of the socks. One of the benefits of being a knitter is that you can custom knit everything for a perfect fit!

  2. They are really pretty. I love the cheery pink color. When you wash them, they might tighten up a little bit.

  3. Oh I love the color!! I keep smiling as I look at them. And like it was said above, maybe with a wash they'll shrink a wee bit?

  4. I can't wait to finish my socks. I think I have a sock-yarn problem...

  5. They are so cute! I love the colors!

  6. You did a really nice job! I am envious of sock knitters...I have attempted them several times but they have never really "clicked" with me before...I love the colors!

  7. I love self-striping sock yarns! (but hating making them myself) Juicy good colors.

  8. Those are lovely! That yarn is beautiful!


Hey, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog! :) I really appreciate it!
