My Free Patterns

Friday, March 7, 2014


Here I am, finally back on a FO Friday. I've been knitting, a lot, but I don't have much in the way of FO's to show you. Life's been stressful--we are moving, again. To another continent, again. I have my fingers and toes crossed this is the last move for a while, and I'm pretty excited because we are moving back to the USA. Hurray for being closer to family!

But I digress. I decided to use some yarn left over from my Hermione socks to make some sports socks (that's what I call these little short socks, I don't actually do sports in them. Or any time, really).  In truth I'm just using up stash so when I get a job in the USA I can buy more yarn. Just don't tell Dave that. What's that you say, he already knows?

I almost had enough yarn to finish these. But I didn't. So I used up a bit of spare 4ply I had, and I am pleased with how they turned out. I'm not one to be critical of the miss-matched colors. I'm a big fan of "different."

I've got a bit more spare sock yarn that I will use to make another set of these. My girls call them "summer socks" and luckily I get to go from the southern hemisphere summer to the northern. Hurray! If you are interested in the super simple yet satisfying pattern, you can find it here.

Hopefully in between all the packing I will be here on Wednesday for a WIP show and tell. I'm making some good progress on things! Until then, happy crafting!

These Tasmanian Devils remind me of my twins.......


  1. if you didn't say anything I would have thought the yarn was all the same, lovely socks and great colors!

  2. Wow, on the move again, good luck, hope all goes well and in times of stress - reach for the knitting!!

  3. Good luck with the prep for moving! Hurrah for being back state side. Love the socks, and couldn't even tell the toe was different yarn!

  4. I thought they were the same yarn as well, just don't point it out! They are beautiful, and I love the Tasmanian Devils - are they in your garden?! Awesome. Good luck with the move, I hope it all goes well.

  5. The socks are wonderful. Good luck with your move. (Packing up with children can be a trial, as I recall.
    Each forgotten toy that goes into a box suddenly becomes a favorite!)

  6. I'm a big fan of different too. :-)

    Good luck with your move.

  7. Hooray for coming back to the USA! I really like those socks! Perfect for those warmer day.


I love comments almost more than chocolate. Now that is saying something.
