Latest socks

Just off the needles, the Twisted Stitch sock from The Knitting Man(ual) by Kristin Spurkland. The yarn is a superwash sock fine fingering weight with a tight twist from Brooklyn Handspun in a subtle solid, Daily Denim. A delight to knit with. Needles were 2.5mm dpns.

The new socks look great. Just in time for sandal weather.

Those are great!! I did the hiking socks from the same book and was also eye-ing that pattern. They came out beautifully! Nice job.

I love that sock pattern. The Knitting Man(ual) has some good patterns, but this has been my favorite so far.

I did a version of those socks in a Trekking tweedy yarn and they came out great. I'll try to post a picture, but my luck with that feature hasn't always been that good.

I would warn folks that knit tightly that the twisted stitch could create a tighter gauge fabric than Kristin calls for, but Kerry didn't seem to have that problem.

Beautifully done! Tempts me to do some textural knitting- that pattern would look great on a sweater.

I have to admire you guys who knit socks - my feet destroy socks - so I have a real reluctance to spend the energy knitting something I'll be afraid to wear because it would destroy it!

It's a thought - but would they be comfortable?

I don't know if you were joking or not... but...

I know it's intended for shape-able fabrics, but... sounds uncomfortable to me...

Grace and Peace,

Yea, I was only joking. ;-)

You sure that's not because of all the 15th and 19th century footwear?

They look so comfortable, and the construction looks superb. I really need to get over my DPNphobia.

Very nice! This pattern is on my list. I've already picked out the yarn too. Just need to actually complete one or two other projects before I start another!

Very cool. I've been looking at that pattern but it's intimidating for sock newbie.
