Vanilla ROY Artist socks

The socks for the Artist just flew off my needles. I’m not sure if it was the vibrant colors, the simple sock pattern, or my knitting Mojo.

Z's R-O-Y socks

I cast on sock #1 on July 28 and finished sock #2 Monday evening…except for grafting the toe as I try to do that in the morning when my brain is rested.

This was hand-dyed yarn from the marathon dyeing session at the end of June.

The colors remind me of tropical fruits: pineapple. mango, papaya, and coconut. Refreshing colors on hot summer days.

Z's R-O-Y heel

The pattern was a basic top-down sock in plain stockinette stitch that really showed off the colors and an Eye of Partridge heel flap.

Z's R-O-Y toes

Once again to save as much of the hand-dyed yarn, I knit the toes in a contrasting color. This time it was Knit Picks Stroll fingering weight in Scarlet.

E and Z socks

These two pairs are off to Colorado to the Artist and the Princess.

Next up are socks for the Karate Kid…just as soon as I finish a sewing project.

Have you finished anything lately?

  1. Love these! I started a second Wallaby for the most wonderful child in the world – this one in a size 4 since he’s growing enough to need a bigger size come Fall, and if it doesn’t fit this year, it will next! Yesterday I took my neighbor shopping and we hit Hobby Lobby’s yarn clearance event – we came home with several balls of random yarn with the idea that we’re going to make scarves and hang them from trees this Winter for anyone who needs one. I started one today in crochet – a really pretty burgundy Yarn Bee “Must be Merino.” I think it will be appropriate for a guy.
