Sock It To Me

Sock yarn choices given to Bev

I gave Bev a pair of short-cuffed socks when we met for lunch in September. She liked the socks and asked if I would knit three pair for her daughters and two pair for her granddaughters.

Once she gave me an idea of colors, I went to my sock yarn stash and sent Bev a photo of some possible choices. She made her decision, told me the sizes for each, and I began knitting.


Since she wanted short-cuffed socks, they were faster knits.

  7. Great colors and patterns. Short cuff socks are my favorites and I agree with Kathyb that Patons Kroy always knits up in an interesting way. Great job Nancy. Bev is a lucky lady!

  9. Nice work!! And how kind of you to do all that knitting for her! Sweet. I have found that the one pair of socks I knit with Paton's Kroy is my favorite. They stretch, but don't stretch out...and wash up beautifully.

  10. How sweet, to give of your time for a friend. I love all of them and even have used one of them (the Red Heart). That is one of my favorite pairs! I love the look of the Paton Spring Jacquard... I need to look into getting some of that one. Tonight I am working on fingerless mitts for my frozen fingers. We will be in the low teens, the lowest temps in about 20 years. So I will sit by the fire, knit and watch football.
