Friday Finished Object: 🎄Christmas Socks

 Today I am sharing my finished pair of Christmas Socks…


I started these socks on September 17th and finished them on October 26th. Normally it doesn’t take that long for me to make socks but I was knitting other things, so they didn’t get as much knitting love.

Here’s the particulars:

Yarn: West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4 Ply, 75% Wool/25% Nylon, 437 yards

Color:  Candycane

Needles: Addi Sock Rockets 16” circulars US size 1 1/2 and Knitters Pride 10” for knitting in the round from the heel up.

Pattern: I used my own vanilla toe up sock recipe 

They fit well and my husband says they look like Elf socks.  While I enjoyed knitting them, I did find the yarn liked to split periodically , which I did not care for but other than that I’m quite happy with how they turned out.

Do you have anything finished this week?

  5. Ohh, they look great! Sometimes, stockinette is really the best option with a yarn like that. They are beautiful! (Did you use a special heel?)
