Popsicle Socks – Pattern Preview!

May 30, 2010


Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

I have another pattern preview for you today. I am starting with my two patterns because I have the most to say about them. I started this colorful pair of knee length socks at the end of last summer.

My family took a family trip up north to Door County, Wisconsin. We stayed in a gorgeous modern house that I fell in love with. I had packed up a bag filled with wound skeins of Fine in all of the available colorways at that time. I would just sit in this wonderful red chair and add stripe after stripe. Every once in awhile I would stop and read my book. That’s a good book by the way. It was all so relaxing. I have fond memories of knitting those socks.

Here are a couple of the skeins just waiting to be added to the socks. These socks are addicting because you can’t wait to add the next color. I wrote the pattern to fit child to adult sizes. What I always do when I am working with lots colors and stripes is stop after every 3 to 4 color changes and I weave in the ends. Then at the end of the knitting I am pretty much done with the socks except for a few more ends to weave in. Clean up as you go! That’s my tip for the day.

Here are a couple of shots on my sock blockers. You can wear these scrunched up and slouchy or…

…pulled up high like knee socks.

Either way you can’t lose. They are fun to make and fun to wear! The pattern is available in mid-June through the Spud & Chloë pattern line which is sold in local yarn shops and online yarn shops.
