FO Friday: His & Hers Edition

His Oak Ribbed Socks

Oak Ribbed Socks

Technical Specs:

  • Yarn: Schoeller+Stahl Fortissima Socka
    • Olive Twist
  • Needles: US Size 1 47″ circular
  • Pattern: Oak Ribbed Socks from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush
  • New Skills: Upsizing a women’s sock pattern for my guy
  • Mods:  Added two repeats to the pattern (cast-on 77 st. instead of 66), calculated percentages to get heel placement & construction correct.

I enjoyed this pattern. The wide ribbing is simple but interesting, and the vintage French Heel and round toe make a nice addition to my sock construction skills.

Her Stripey Spring Socks

Stripey Socks

Technical Specs:

Crystal Heel

These were a lot of fun, standard vanilla socks + lovely striping yarn + anatomically correct heel = awesome!

And because my toddler now insists on picture of her socks whenever I go out to take pictures -

Baby socks

Her toddler socks (store-bought). She has also asked me to make a pair of socks for her, so expect those soon.
