Patriotic Trio

I didn’t really think of this until I started taking photographs but my socks seem to have taken on a ‘patriotic’ color scheme this month.  Is it obvious?

The Latvian Socks, from Folk Socks, is just about finished and I will post some specs when they are.  Although the lace pattern is simplistic, the pattern itself utilized a few techniques that were new to me so this has been a learning experience for me.  I’ll tell you more about it in the next post.

The red RICK sock is from Cookie A.’s new book, Sock Innovation. I’m knitting it for a Sock Innovation KAL over on Ravelry.  I’ve learned a few new things knitting this sock, too.  I tell you, Cookie is an absolute genius in her patterns.  I think she has actually improved the way standard knitting techniques are done.  I still have to cast on for the second sock soon before the dreaded SSS sets in.  By the way, the Socks That Rock yarn that RICK is knit with is a pretty rockin’ yarn!

  1. Yummy Yummy socks, love the look of that Cookie A one, and I loovee latvian’s too, some day soon i’ll have my own!

  2. These are all beautiful. I can’t wait to see the finished pairs! (Is that enough pressure for you?)

  3. Gorgeous socks & colors! You must have been very busy with all those knitting. I am currently on a sock break as I am addicted to little triangle shawls.
