Because Winter is over…..

No blue hexagons this time, but something I worked on the last couple of weeks. I love to wear self-made socks and I was running out of them. Because I had some sockyarn in my stash, it was quickly decided what to do.

So I started with these.

Pretty simple pattern. As all sock patterns this one has a smaller foot and a wider leg. But my ankles are much smaller than my feet. So a pattern needs to be adjusted, I just didn’t know how because it had been a very long time since I knitted some socks for me.

This was an easy way to do it; just knit the back of the leg in rib. I made these a bit longer, only to see if I like that.

Last attempt is with a pattern. It looks very intricate, but is quite simple. As you can see I made the leg not as long as in the second pair, but longer than the first. These fit perfectly and as soon as I’m in town, I’ll buy some more sock yarn.
