Back to socks

After putting two shawls in knitting time out, I picked up my needles and went back to my socks. I finished the mate for this yarn, DROPS Fabel 677p - you can see it here.

Plain vanilla socks where I reversed the stripes so they'd be fraternal mates.

Then I picked up this Regia yarn. The colorway is called Istanbul Mosaic and I purchased it here.

I love all the colors in this yarn and wanted to do something a bit more than a vanilla sock and found this pattern on Ravelry - you can see it here.

I tried and tried to get a picture that captured the pattern without success. Look at the pattern link for a clearer look. The pattern is a 4 row repeat. Row 1 - K Row 2 -K Row 3- K Row 4 - K1, P1 repeat till end of round. The link on Ravelry calls andalucian stitch. It makes a wonderfully bumpy texture which reminds me of an alligator's skin. Yeah... my mind wanders off in strange directions - LOL

I'm happy that I went back to my sock knitting. It feels great to knit a successful project and the weather is changing. I even wore a pair of hand knit socks the other evening and they felt sooooo good.

happy knitting-
carol fun


  1. Wonderful socks. Kafee Fassett bright (forgive my spelling errors).

  2. I love that those first socks...what great colors! :0)

  3. Your completed pair of socks are wonderful, but I love, love, love your new pair. The colors are gorgeous! And thanks for sharing the links to the yarn and pattern. Putting your shawls in knitting time out is too cute!

  4. I would love to see a picture of your sock must be fun to see all that gorgeous color in one spot. Now how do you decide which pair you'll wear?

  5. I can not wait for the weather to change here. Love wearing my hand knit socks, so nice and cozy. Well done my friend.

  6. Such pretty socks! Someday I hope the weather cools off to need socks again. Maybe in another month...

  7. Yes, I'm way way behind in blog reading. Man, I love that Istanbul Mosaic. Pretty.


Thanks for stopping by. I really enjoy reading your comments. They make my day!
