Socks The First.
Yarn: Schachenmayr Regia Jeans Style Color, color 04042 (left) and Schachenmayr Regia Colormania, color 04070 (right).
Pattern: Wendy's Generic Toe-up Socks, knit on 48 st.
Needles: US#2.5 (foot and ankle), US#4 (leg).
The resulting tweedy fabric is lovely, imo. If it would not be prohibitively warm -- and take roughly forever to knit! -- I would make a sweater out of combining these two yarns. As it is, I shall have to be content with the socks.
Socks The Second.
You have seen these before, when I had to rip out the second one
because I was knitting it on the wrong size -- way too small! -- needle.
Most of these socks were knit with two strands of the brown Trekking; stripes were one strand of Trekking with one strand of the KP dark blue tweed. There is one stripe in the foot of the first sock made with brown Trekking and KP turquoise tweed (not distinguishable in the photos), but it seemed too bright for what I wanted, so I did not repeat that combination (nor did I rip it out). As you can see, the stripe pattern on the foot is different from the stripe pattern on the leg. And it looked like I was going to run out of the brown Trekking so the last 4-5” of the leg of the second sock are one strand of brown and one strand of dark blue, no stripes.
Normally I am anal about my socks being matchy-matchy, but these had exhausted my patience. Can you tell?
