    First sock finished. This is a short cut sock for my four-year-old grandson. You can see the kinky texture where I used frogged yarn but it will smooth out after washing.

      These are super cute!! I was wondering if these would work as short socks. The ones in making for Gauge are y'all but his brother, Luke, mostly wears short socks but I want sure how they would look.

      I always reach for stubby pencils first as they are wonderful to use, and become favorites. Yours are adorable!

      knitter131 Char Thank you. πŸ€—
      lovestostitch thanks I will. I was thinking I might have to go buy some pencils since all I have on hand are mechanical pencils that are red, white and blue or paisley. Lol

      KnitsWithHorses - paisley sounds good. Lots of colors that might be suitable for variegated yarn....

      FreedomLover Thank you! 😁 Char did a great job with the pattern. The ONLY thing I changed was making it kid sized.

      I was productive on our Fiberkind Zoom meeting today. I finished my pencil socks. Now they need a good soaking to get the kinky bumps out from using frogged yarn.

        pinesprairie - great questions.

        I think Rose the Rebel meant "shorties" (short socks or ankle socks), not "stories."

        The grafting that FreedomLover mentioned would be closing the toes, as the final step in knitting a pair of socks top-down (beginning with the cuff or opening at the ankle, and knitting down to the toe).

        Yes I meant shorties, bad proof reading on my part

        qfknit, Rose the Rebel Appreciate the info, thanks. No worries on not catching something, I just thought it was something about sock knitting I should know about for my 'someday'.

I've used this pattern many times. It's one of my go-to patterns for every day socks. It's written cuff down.

            They look great. I really like the design - simple (as in not a busy look) and the cable gives it a nice pop. Did that compliment make sense?

          I almost forgot to post these! I finished my Just Cuz socks and have cast on another pair of pencil socks, although they are not exactly traditional pencils. πŸ˜‰

          Just finished my β€œBack to School” socks. Yarn is a Knit Picks Felici. I always think of bright colors when I think of school. Especially those years in elementary school 😊😊
