Stripey Picot Socks

I've had a bunch of time to knit lately. Huge snow storms will do that for you.


This is the first thing I finished. It was actually a test knit of Carole's new pattern for picot edged socks. I loved it and I see many more picot edged socks in my future.

The yarn I used for these was the Kaffe Fassett Regia. I can't imagine why I didn't use this sooner. I had so much fun with the colors and, as usual, Bruce was fascinated by the self striping yarn.


These socks are purposefully, totally, fraternal because I think they're more fun like that. Once they were finished, DQ noticed that the stripes are realy pretty close.


As much as I enjoyed making these socks, I didn't keep them for myself. I sent them to my sister as a little pick-me-up and she says they hit the mark. They have a lot in common with my second pair od finished socks for this year. They're also not for me but perfect for the recipient. I hope to have pictures for a F O post soon.

Great minds;-) I started Carole's sock last night AND I have the exact color way (I think) of Kaffe's yarn in my stash. There will be more of Carole's sock in my future, too!

They look great! I'm so glad the pattern worked out for you.

More than close enough for twins. Carole is branching out nicely.
