I have a FO this week!! My bullseye vanilla socks are done, washed and blocked!!
Pattern: My own 72 stitch toe up vanilla sock “recipe”
Yarn: Biscotte Yarns Bis-sock in the Bullseye colorway
Needles: US 0s
I used roughly 300 yards of yarn or 70 grams of this skein of yarn. They socks are in between my normal tall socks and a shortie sock. I have absolutely no rhyme or reason why. I just got tired of knitting the first sock leg and put the cuff on. So I made the second one to match. Perfectly scientific, right?
They fit quite nicely and almost perfectly match. It’s getting warm enough that these will likely go right into summer sock storage. But I needed this win this week. I can’t control the world but I can knit some royally good socks!
What is your win this week?
Not sure what my “win” is yet, but I love your socks, and I actually really like that leg length!
Yay! They look great – love how the stripes fall on the heels
Love these! I’m always in awe of dyers who can do self striping like this, with some solid and some speckle
Wow you really made a proper clone with that 2nd one, even with commercial sock pair yarn I’ve not hit it that exact a match.
That’s awesome! Do you have a favourite toe up pattern? I’ve never done toe up but want to try a pair:)
I like any of Wendy D Johnson’s toe up patterns. She has a good vanilla one
Thank you! I’ll check her out as soon as I finish one of my current projects:)
