Green socks

Here they are, my new long bedsocks:



The colour is right in the top photo. I used the pattern on the cover photo of Melissa Morgan-Oakes' book Toe-Up 2-At-A-Time Socks for the shaping and measurements but simplified the lace pattern and made it my own.  I think the heel is very pretty here.


It was hard to estimate how far my yarn would go so I started the ribbing early. Binding off looks a bit curly but it mustn't be too tight.


I have been cutting more strips for the log cabin quilt. Still a lot to cut, but it means that I will use up many of my fabrics. and that is the point. Use up fabric, have fun sewing, get a quilt. Win-win-win.

  2. The socks turned out so nice. Sometimes cutting is a chore and sometimes its repetitive and relaxing.

  3. Such a beautiful shade of green and the lace pattern is so delicate. A very beautiful heel. I hope Winter has finally left you alone as Summer will be here before we know it! I really love a log cabin. Happy sewing.
