    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!

      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.

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

          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 😊😊

            I'm a newbie here, so excuse me for just butting in without following the theme. I finished these purple sock a couple of weeks ago. They have nothing to do with back-to-school though.
