    February 2020 Finished Socks Only Please

    Hello! I'm actually posting this a day early - I feel like I've been late lately. Wonder why

    Here is the finished thread for our February 2020 KAL - if you have a sock in progress, the "in progress sock" does not count but the finished pair does.

    As always you may choose any pattern and amend for size and preferences. You may also multi-dip with other make alongs, as long as that organizer is good with it.

    Please post an entry (use the "post reply" button) for the following:
    • first finished sock (or two through the heels)
    • pair finished
    • featured pattern
    • featured theme
    • Festured color
    knitter131 is donating a skein of yarn this month. It is a lovely pink sock yarn in the spirit of our color(s) of the month. :-)

    Please remember - new posts (using the "post reply" button) are for finished sock entries only - oohs, ash’s, and Thank you’s should be posted as comments (press the three dots at the bottom right hand side of the post) not as new posts. This makes it easier on me at the end of the month to draw a random number winner! Even one sock finished has a chance to win, so be sure to post pictures and knit socks! I'm off to wind my yarn now.

    I finished these today. They were a WIP from last month.

    The yarn is Regia - Wool and the Gang pairfect line. I have another pair of this style. The next yarn I will likely cut out the heel, add an inch or inch and a half to the leg before inserting the heel. It was a fun knit!

      lovestostitch yes - it came with instructions, even bright yellow scrap yarn for the afterthought heel. It was kinda odd, really. But if your gauge is correct it was set up to make a “perfect” sock (in EU sizes though).

      I've used the pairfect yarn before and just knit the whole sock without taking out for heels, maybe because it wasn't patterned?? I'll try and post pictures

      Love the pattern AND that they are toe up. What pattern is that? Can you post a link?

      Thank you FreedomLover and KnittingNana! The pattern is one that I found on "r" a couple years ago. It's actually more of a recipe for the lace hearts with suggested ribbing. I used the heart chart and just plugged it in my own preferred type and heel. The pattern was free at the time and can be found under user Patty-Joy White. Hope that helps 🙂

    Equivalent of one sock completed, toe-up through the heels. These will be "summer shorties", with about a 3" cuff.

      I love these! I have to check my leftovers and see if I can steal this idea for a simple striped pattern.

      Y'all are making beautiful socks! I'm enjoying them so much. My arthritic thumb is requiring bigger needles right now or I'd be in there making socks, too. Baby blanket almost done.

        Finished first and probably only pair for February, my eyes are shot from focusing on the tiny stitches and shiny needles 🤓

          I will post pics somewhere Char, hopefully I can get it done in the next couple weeks. I only have 2 1/2 more rows of rectangles on the interlac part the rest is garter stitch so easy peasy right?

          These are beautiful! (Although I am biased as my favorite color is green).

        I might even get these done this month! :-)

        One pair past the heels! I am trying out the magic loop on one sock. If I like it I’ll merge the two together for magic loop and see how that goes.
