Socks No. 10 and 11 for 2011

More socks for Kazakhstan orphanages. Having finished the campaign for the "graduates", we are now gearing up to knit socks, socks, and more socks.

These two pairs were knit with one ball of 6 ply Supersocke Wellness II yarn bought at Little Knits at a considerable discount. I used 2.75 mm needles and the patterns were made up on the fly, sort of.

The stitch pattern for this pair of socks is: Row 1 k3, p1. Row 2 knit.

This pattern was adapted from a sweater I knit. It is basically a 5 stitch pattern set off by 2 purl stitches on each side. Row 1: Knit; Row 2: Slip 5 stitches purl wise with yarn in front; Row 3: Knit; Row 4: K2, pick up floating yarn with right needle and pull over middle stitch and knit, k2; Row 5: Knit; Row 6: Knit Repeat.

Another pair is on the needles; it's called my car socks since I only knit on the pair when I'm riding in the car.

Knit on Merrily!


  1. lovely colours, and I like the stitch pattern for the 2nd sock very much.
