My socks. (One of these days I’ll have the photo sizes consistent. I have one or two more drafts with photos uploaded before I switched to the larger size from Flickr. Which I like better. Oh well.)
The very first adult socks I made are the blue ones on the right. I made them both at once on 2 circulars, maybe size 2, and paid no mind to gauge. They are good slippers now. Maybe Regia yarn?
The blue-purple socks I knit toe up with short row heels. Now I know short row heels don’t fit me well. Regia yarn, with heel and toe in the blue from the earlier socks.
Sock on the right I knit from a class with Nancy Bush, Knitting Vintage Socks. Calf shaping. Welsh heel. The yarn is Brown Sheep NatureSpun (I think, I’ll come back to fix later as needed). Finally! A better fit!
I made a perfectly fitting pair in Koigu, but I gifted them away. Silly me! I’ll be doing another pair from the same pattern for me me me! (Lichen ribbed socks, Nancy Bush, Knitting Vintage Socks.)
I love Nancy Bush. Nice, well-written patterns. Historical context. I really want to take an Estonian lace class from her some day.
