Couch socks

 
I may have been sidelined with an infection, but I did keep knitting! I promised my husband I would knit him a pair of socks. I'm using a Berocco Comfort Sock yarn and size 1 double pointed knitting needles. It was a nice way to get over my gum infection. I could rest, watch television and knit my socks!

 
The sock pattern comes from the Jane Austen Knits Fall 2012 issue. They are called Tilney Socks, socks for gentlemen! The pattern consists of an all over ribbing pattern with a traveling stitch diamond pattern down the center of the back of the sock.


Here's a close up of the diamond pattern. This picture doesn't do justice to the cute pattern the diamonds make. The pattern isn't too difficult. I've memorized the allover ribbing pattern which makes knitting go so much faster. I hope to bring my sock to work tomorrow and get some knitting done when it's quiet.

We had another snow storm today. We got close to another foot. So sick of this snow! I'm hoping for spring. It seems nowhere to be found right now but I have faith! Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Oh, nice cozy socks--my DH misses my socks--I can't knit anymore after my rotary cuff injury--just hurts too much. I love that pattern on the outside running down the sock--very nifty. Enjoy the weekend (at least it's above freezing! So, I can go visit Mom at the nursing home) and feel better soon...hugs Julierose
