Christmas Sock Order Done

I had a second sock order – for two pairs – for Christmas. It’s amazing how working to fill an order changes the knitting – I feel pressure to get it done by a specific deadline. When I’m knitting to relax (or to justify sitting in front of the TV) I can knit 10 rows, I can knit 40 rows – doesn’t matter – no pressure. But with a new order once again I felt the pressure of a looming deadline.

Mary Ann liked the khaki ombre with dots socks I’d finished a couple of weeks ago. Since I had a second ball of that yarn from Hobbii (in Denmark) she chose that as one of the pairs. My initial intention was to knit a second pair using that yarn but decided just to give her the original socks and knit the other ball some time when I’m not facing a deadline.

The other yarn she chose was a grey/black/almost white variegated. I finished those socks two evenings ago. A handsome sock for a man.

Black/Grey/Almost White

That order is now complete (whew):

Sock Order #2

Last night I started a new pair – variegated in shades of peach/blue/gold.

  1. I’m curious: Do you follow a standard pattern when knitting socks, or do it all from memory? I’m clumsy with double-point knitting, and always imagined that tackling socks would be my undoing!
