Two February Pairs



Hiya, I'm new to SAM, but not to socknitting. :)

Earlier this month, I finished a pair of Mermaids.


And two days ago I completed some Fluted Banisters. These are extra special because the yarn was gifted by a secret pal last summer, and because these were unintentionally a UFO for quite a while.



Cheers :)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and letting me know that you had just completed a pair of socks using the same yarn as my recent socks. Your socks are great and it is amazing how differently they look from mine.
I have not ventured into doing much more than basic knitting. You inspire me to break out of my box and try something different.

You knit great socks! I love them both. Are the Mermaid socks from Cool Socks Warm Feet?

Thanks everyone! :)

The Mermaids are indeed from Neatby's book Cool Socks, Warm Feet. I love this pattern for the effect it has on striping yarn.

I too love, love, love the mermaids! It is sort of a weird co-incidence, as I just posted on my blog last nice that Lucy Neatby is coming to a lfs near where I lived, and low and behold, the very next day, her sock pattern is in the Sock a Month! Very nice! Love the colours, love the pattern!

Gorgeous Mermaid socks! I'm going to have to check that book out. I love the browns of your Fluted Bannister too.

I know Mermaids when I see 'em. Gorgeous! I keep meaning to make a pair for me.

I love that mermaid pattern. How many stitches did you cast on? I made a pair with 60 and it was too tight! I haven't ripped to start over with 66 yet, but I'd love to know how many you used. Great socks!
