Throwback Thursday: Favorite Socks

Since I've been digging out some of old sock WIPs, I thought today's Throwback Thursday should be all about the socks.

I've knit a lot of socks over the years. My current sock knitting involves self-striping yarn and plain stockinette socks. They're perfect for travel and for knit nights. But just a few short years ago, I was into more complicated socks. Here are some of my favorites:

Leyburn Socks (Free Pattern on Ravelry), knit out of Socks That Rock Mediumweight in color Purple Rain. I knit them in 2008 as part of a KAL on Ravelry.

Flicker Socks by Cookie A, knit out of (the now discontinued) Louet Gems Pearl. I made them in July of 2007, which was the same time I opened my Ravelry account (anybody else remember having to get on the Ravelry waiting list!?)

And here are my favorite socks of all time. It's Mingus (also by Cookie A.). I was so sad the day these socks got a hole in them. They are knit out of Socks That Rock Lightweight in the Turquoise colorway. Such beautiful socks. These were knit in the summer of 2008 - in the height of my sock knitting obsession. :)

Hmm, maybe I need to dig out some of the older patterns and knit them again. I would love another pair of Mingus socks!

  1. Awww. I don't really knit socks much any more (too tiny on size 0 needles), but I also have a pair of STR Mediumweight socks in Bleeding Heart. it's Shurtugal (there's an apostrophe in there somewhere but I'm too lazy to go look for it). And I had a lovely pair of Leyburns, but not superwash, and eventually they shrank so much that they tore when I was trying to get my foot past the heel. But they were great while they lasted! I especially like your Leyburns, so pretty. Do they still live?
