    Finished Pair of Handspun Socks. How about credit for the colors of construction- paper turkeys???LOL No? it's ok.

    As I said in the chatter thread, my first handspun socks reflect my thankfulness for the friends I have met through Fiberkind this year during the stress and boredom of having to #stayhome, and especially the comeraderie and support received during the Spin de Fleece back in Sept. and the Virtual Yarnies group which allows me to talk to adults with like interests. Thank You Fiberkind Friends.

      Thank you all,the thing that I love about these is what I learned about spinning sock yarn and knitting with it. It gives mean incentive to swatch my other handspun yarns so I’ll see what needs to be corrected or improved.

      I'm planning to make some dk work socks for myself when I get a minute free. That's the weight I prefer for wearing around the house as well as in my work boots in winter.

      It looks really good! I'm thinking about making some thick socks for myself, this is great inspiration!

      That's cute!
      I agree it's good to have thicker socks for winter. I've been lurking at patterns with doubled sock yarn. A good way to use up yarn and the combos are kind of neat too in the way they marl together. Bonus, they knit up faster, too.

    Feeling well enough to knit today, thank goodness. Socks for my oldest daughter finished through the heels. This is based on a pattern from Tiina Kuu that I adapted to toe up with my heel of choice. I just fell in love with the color chart. Click image for larger version

      The combination of textured pattern stitches and soft, fuzzy yarn is delightfully fluffy and feminine!

      I was so lucky to have a skein of the perfect shade of green to add to the mixed colorway. I was concerned that one skein wouldn't be enough yarn since he wanted a generous height on the legs and his feet are pretty long. I weighed the yarn after the first sock and it was a good thing I went with the contrasting cuff, heel and toes.

    These have *nothing* to do with the theme, but there you go. I'm using up the leftover yarn from last month.

      Fabulous!

      For anyone wanting to locate the pattern quickly, some search terms to try: Dreaming of Happiness (Unelma Onnesta) by Tiina Kuu. She is a Finnish knitwear designer.

      I got the pattern on payhip. You can get it free or pay as you are able. Just look for Tina Kuu on payhip.

      And one for the theme. This may be way more than y'all want to know about me but here goes... These are to be a Christmas gift for my oldest daughter, Bonni. I can't describe how thankful I am for her. I had her right after high school. I was a very wild child who grew up in a violent home and I was definitely passive suicidal and into very high risk activities like riding wild horses with no gear as a bet and racing cars on dead end roads. Until nobody would race me anymore because I had a reputation for not caring if I died. But when I learned I was pregnant it changed everything. I didn't care about me but she deserved the world. Including a sane mom. I got therapy and went to college. The doctor who delivered Bonni was my best friend's dad. When Bonni was 9 months old he told my mom (a nurse) that if having a baby would change his daughter the way I had changed he would have her artificially inseminated. πŸ˜‚ She turned out to be my best friend and an amazing woman and mom. She leaves me in awe every day.

        Thanks y'all. This is the first Thanksgiving in a while that I haven't had all 5 of my kids. The two oldest girls being quarantined is hard. So I cried a lil bit typing that. She really is amazing. I can't believe she is fixing to turn 40. She doesn't look it. And she runs every day and does power lifting. She out lifts most guys. Not to mention raising 4 amazing boys, 5 if you include her stepson who she definitely had every bit as much to do with raising him as his mom and more than his dad. Oh and the little guy is my youngest grandson Gauge.

      Finished these yesterday and was happy to find that less than 50 grams of the main color was used. I have quite a few 50-gram skeins in my stash and this will be a good way to use some of them. 😎Click image for larger version

      I just realized that I hadn't posted the socks I made here. I finished the first socks I ever made on November 6th for my brand new grand-nephew. They are blue, yellow, and beige (it looks grey in the pics, but the lightest color is beige ) and they fit for thankfulness because they were part of a layette (blanket, jacket, hat, and socks) for my oldest niece, who lost her first child at birth in January 2019. I am so thankful that my wonderful, amazing niece finally got to hold her happy and healthy child in her arms. His name is Ryker and he is so beautiful. I haven't been able to meet him in person yet, due to the lockdowns, but my nice sent me some pics of him wearing the layette I made for him.
