        It's dk weight. It's a lot faster than knitting with fingering! I prefer thick socks for my ever cold toes.

      This is a pair I started last month, finished today. Yarn is Knit Picks Felici, a modification of the SKYP pattern . I should have been able to finish them, but other things took up my interest.

        I have this KP Stroll โ€œTulip Fieldsโ€ colorway that I have started - and frogged - socks with several times. It was pretty in the skein but not looking good to me when knit up. I decided to helical knit it with navy blue to break it up a bit and that worked out pretty well. I think my sister will like them.

          ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Those Stroll Hand Paint skeins are so pretty in the skein, but wow do some of them flash and pool a lot as socks. Iโ€™m happy to have found a fun way to use them.

          Kokoriffic - I had a bad experience with that Stroll yarn too. I did a pair that turned out with one striped sock and one pooled sock. One of my favorite patterns for breaking up yarn is Ugly Duckling.

        Hubby wanted to watch a Christmas movie last night - Miracle on 34th Street - and so I got both socks done through the heels.

          For mindless entertainment (to have on in the background while we multi-task with divided attention), we enjoy Hallmark movies... especially now the Hallmark Christmas movies. Somewhat predictable, but pleasant. It's often fun to guess the plot twists and ending.

          While they may make us nostalgic for days we've never known and sentimental for memories we've never made, Hallmark movies are a slice of Americana... featuring songs/carols, foods, and traditions from many parts of the country... while always promoting the idea of family. Hallmark movies can be a positive addition to many routines over the holidays. https://www.hallmarkchannel.com/movies

          qfknit My oldest daughter, Bonni, LOVES Hallmark. She watches ALL the movies and knows the Christmas ones by heart. She is a pretty strong, firece woman so that surprises a lot of people who don't know her. I prefer the Hallmark mystery Channel but I have both with my Prime membership as add ons or whatever they call it. But I would love it if they weren't all about 20 and 30 somethings. I still prefer Britbox and Acorn for the most part. But at least I know where to go when I need an infusion of inspiration, hope and old fashioned values that aren't ridiculed.

          KnitsWithHorses - we did very little Christmas decorating this year... LOL, we can turn on Hallmark movies and see abundant decor!

        Finished my blue-gray-purple blend socks. Nothing fancy here, just straight knitting. The heathering is so pretty that I didn't want to detract from that.

          Thank you, all. Yes, they were made from a double-stranded sock blank that I hand dyed, so matching is a piece of cake!

          What a great idea! I have been thinking of getting one of those little cheap looms to make sock blanks on and now I want to try this! I'm a total newbie at dying though so we'll see how that goes. Lol

        I had *just* enough of the blue/gray/lilac yarn left to knit this pair with the contrasting navy heels and toes, oh, and three thin stripes in the cuff. Thanks for the encouragement, ladies!

        I have been neglecting my socks this month! I don't know if I'll finish the second sock by Friday or not but here's the first one. The white yarn has a sparkly thread but I can't get it to photograph. But we'll see if I even get them done before I worry about it.

          Pegg Thomas I have had multiple DVTs in my leg so the right one is pretty messed up and considerably bigger than the left. Much easier to adjust for that with a shorty. Is fun making knee socks for daughters or granddaughter once in a while but it feels like it takes foreeeever compared to my shorties!

          I'm at "that" age where I'm always - *always* - hot. The shorty socks I can wear, but I can't handle all the bulk and warmth up my legs anymore. Here's hoping that at some point I'll be able to again!

          Iโ€™m also loving this yarn. I edited my post to include the yarn info. I purchased it from our LYS when she was going out of business, I donโ€™t know if itโ€™s still available.

        #15
        I posted these in the chat, but I guess I should post them here too, for the drawing. Both done through the heels ... on the THIRD try!
