One Sock, Two Sock

Just call me a sock knitting machine, because I just finished pair number two for the month.

A pair of Anklets. I'm calling them my Sunset Socks.

The symmetry.

And the close up of the stitch pattern, (sorry it's not that defined).

Sunset Socks

Yarn: Koigu KPPPM in blues, greens and oranges, I used a skein and a half

Needles: US 2's and US 0's for the ribbing and cast off

Gauge: 7 1/4 stitches = 1" on US 2's

Pattern: Toe Up Sock from "More Sensational Knitted Socks" by Charlene Schurch; Lattice Stitch (p. 94 I believe, it's the same as the Diamonds Sweater that I'm knitting for Scout from Debbie Bliss' book); Short Row Heel; 1x1 ribbing

These socks were really easy to knit. I guess now that I know how to knit socks it's "easy", huh? I started the toe of the first sock last Friday. I started the foot of the first sock on Saturday. I started and finished the leg on Sunday. Yesterday, I started the toe and the foot and the leg. I did the last 22 rows today. Fast huh? I was in a hurry. After the first sock was done, I had to finish the second one. They are just too pretty.

I suppose I'll have to start another pair. But what yarn? And what pattern?

I love your socks, and they are such a pretty colourway too. Your post title caught my attention because I have a sock knitting web ring called One Sock Two Sock (anyone can join...the link is in the sidebar of my Kitten Knits Yarn blog).

Wow, these socks are fantastic! I love the pattern as well as that beautiful yarn you were using - great job indeed! Now, if I'd just ever manage to knit toe up socks too... ;)
