So check out my newest socks:
These would be the first in a long line of quick projects that are hopefully going to hold my attention while I’m couchbound. These are pair of thick, boot socks for myself to keep my feet warm while I’m out on construction sites in the winter. And of course I had to knit them in my school colors – UC is the one of the top schools in the country for Architecture – so I need to flaunt my alma mater!
Pattern: Basic Top Down Socks 40 stitches, size 5 needles, based on the Men's Gray Socks on the Lion Brand website. I knit in K2P2 rib for 11 rows, knit one row Black, then alternated stripes of 4 rows.
Yarn: Swish Superwash, just less than 1 skein of Red Pepper, 1 skein plus a little of a second of Black
Timeline: Yeah. I cast on for these on the way to Akron for work on Thursday. I finished them during the superbowl. I literally knit an entire sock on Sunday. Being couchbound, while boring and frustrating, does have some serious knitting advantages!
