A World of Socks!

I suffer from cold feet syndrome (it’s not really a syndrome, I just have cold feet most of the year). Probably because I smoke, at least that’s what people keep telling me. So I have my arsenal of knitted socks, because I get really grumpy if my feet are cold. All my socks are knitted with leftover yarn, I like having colorful socks that match/mismatch in their own quirky way.

This socks are knitted with needle size 4 1/2 (US size 7), and a mix of wool yarns. The red and the black is alpaca wool. I’ve also patched one of the socks, I only throw away my socks if they are unfixable.

These socks are knitted with needle size 4 (US size 6), and is a mix of every little ball of yarn I had at the time I made them. They have also been patched, and they are my absolute favorite pair.

These socks are knitted on needle size 5 1/2 (US size 9), with leftover fritidsgarn yarn. They used to be the sweater on this cover, but when I had finished it, I didn’t like how it looked on me. So instead I knitted the model 8 sweater (from the same booklet) as a gift, and these socks.

These socks are knitted with needle size 6 (US size 10), the green is Eskimo yarn, and the felted white parts also. I mistakenly machine washed them once, and because of that I have to fix the top part (which had been felted). I couldn’t get them on, because they were too tight. Luckily it’s an easy fix, and now they fit perfectly.

These socks are knitted on needle size 3 (US size 4) with alpaca wool. The soles of feet are starting to felt, which I don’t mind at all. They are still super soft, and it makes it easy to sew on patches when there are holes. They go just below the knees.

These socks are knitted with needle size 4 (US size6), and they are mostly knitted with embroidery yarn. My boyfriend’s father’s mother (that was a mouthful!) had a bag full of embroidery yarns and threads, which I was fortunate to get a hold on. The socks goes just above the knees.

These socks are knitted with needle size 3 (US size 4), with a soft wool yarn. I used this pattern  (which is free on Ravelry), and added some traditional Norwegian patterns for the rest. They go just below the knees.

 

 

Hot tip: 

When it comes to socks, I hardly ever follow the patterns for the foot part. I always knit the foot part of my socks snug and tight, so when they stretch they are a perfect fit. It always annoys me when the heals ends up way up on my ankles. This is of course a personal choice. I also always knit the heals with double thread to make them more durable.
