Pictured above are the completed Blueberry Waffle Socks, served up with butter and pure maple syrup. I thought of all the amusing things I could say about fiber in the diet, breakfast of champions, and the like, but in the end I really just wanted to show you how well these turned out.
Here are the details:
Pattern: Blueberry Waffle Socks (a freebie!)
Needles: US 1.5
Yarn: Socka 50, Colorway 9420, 2 skeins
Modifications: The original pattern is written for worsted weight, but I just forged ahead, using the pattern with the yarn I had. I am really, really pleased with the way they turned out, and found the pattern to be interesting enough to keep going, but not so hard as to need 150% concentration on my part.
If you long check the info on my projects page on Ravelry, be my guest. I would encourage you to try this pattern, the resulting sock is not only attractive, but feels very cushy. The end result also looks more complicated than they are to knit.
Here they are, all by themselves, without additional props:
They are a Christmas gift for my nephew Chad, who lives in Arizona. He is not very adventurous as far as clothing, but I figured these were a color he could wear with jeans if nothing else. I actually finished them at the end of July, and I posted about them on the Year Long Gift-A-Long blog, but forgot until today to show them off on my own blog!
Oh, and just in case you've been wondering (who am I kidding, of course you've been wondering!):
