Finished Object Friday



Pattern: Juta's Stockings

Yarn: Sydney Sock with Nylon from Studio June Yarns

Modifications: None. (I know, pretty amazing eh?)

Comments: The sock yarn was given to me by Jill at Studio June Yarn as a 'thank you" for designing some Ravelry ads for her. The colourway is unnamed on the label, but it makes me think of summer skies streaked with the thinnest cirrus clouds.

This yarn is beautifully smooth yielding perfect stitch definition which is very satisfying for a simple sock like this. Other than lace panels on the side of the legs and the top of the foot it's a vanilla sock pattern, but the result is quite elegant I think. It's another winning sock pattern from Nancy Bush!

It's Friday so check the links at Tami's Amis. Why not see what everyone else has finished? It's also Socktoberfest, so chances are these socks are in some good company!

As I was marveling at yet another beautiful pair of socks I found myself wondering how many pairs you've knitted? Imagine a montage of all those lovelies - what a monumental collage it would be!
Have you ever counted? or put together a big sock family picture? I know I'd love to see - all the pretty colors and amazing stitchwork - just an idea...

I love the color, and it is a great pattern - I can see why you didn't modify it.

Faith said...

The socks are just lovely and as you say the colour is ever ounce summer and cheery.

I reckon RobinBrz is right, a sock montage is a brilliant idea!

Have a good week.
