finally, successful socks

striped socks

I call these socks a success. 

yoga socks

Yes, they're boring, and knit out of boring, old Lion Brand Sock Ease, and I didn't even bother matching the stripes. But they fit! And they're both the same size, unlike some socks. I followed this pattern from Knit Picks, and busted some stash while I was at it. Yup, success. 


Also I used to be a dancer.

  1. YAY socks! Nothing is better than socks that fit that you made yourself. They make you feel happy every time you put them on. In fact they make you feel like your little animation!

  2. I think they're fabulous! And it's kind of cool that the stripes don't match exactly. ;)

  4. Looks like a great fit. I like boring old striped socks! I've only knit one pair of socks and it was tough for me because i was a new knitter at the time. I'm thinking about trying them again for Ravelympics.

    1. Thanks, Julie! I think I chose this yarn in the year 2000, so it's good to know it still holds up!
