I finished the Pink Socks last week. I started these with the intention to give them to Hannah but Jessica was over really admired them and it’s been a long while since she got hand knit socks and now they are hers.
I didn’t do my usual picot edge this time, I did a more traditional couple of inches of ribbing.
I honestly don’t know what the yarn is. At first I thought Knitterly Things but it might actually be Ball and Skein. I didn’t make note of my starting point on the first sock so when I went to knit the second I had to literally knit and knit for a few inches until I found the matching section and then I ripped them out and started over at that point. My love for matching socks knows no end.
And now they are done and they will make Jessica happy and that’s enough for me.

Pink speckly yarn is THE BEST!
Pink socks are really perfect for this fickle time of year. Lucky Jessica.
Those pink matching socks are just lovely! What a lovely gift of love! 🙂
Ooh, lucky Jessica! It’s probably just as well that you don’t know what the yarn is because I would be compelled to go on a search for it and probably be disappointed when I couldn’t find it. But I am seriously wishing that my next socks could be knit with lovely pink yarn, so I may search for some anyway.
Jessica is going to have some Happy Feet!
So much fun. 🙂
What fun socks! I really need to get over my sock thing–I always admire hand-knit socks!
Easter socks! I hope Jessica enjoys them as much as I would. Happy Wednesday, Carole!
Heck…just looking at them makes me happy! Lucky Jessica and nice job Carole!
Those have a long repeat to match, so you get a lot of credit in my book for taking the extra effort! I can’t imagine anyone not being delighted with them, either!
all the pink hearts for those socks!
Love the pink socks! I need to cast on my next pair of socks. I had been wanting to knit all the socks and then the desire to finish a shawl has taken over.

May I commend to you my sock knitting quest? I was determined to knit a sufficient number of pairs of socks so that in my old age (perhaps unable to continue knitting socks) I would not be reduced to wearing Walmart cotton socks. I did an inventory count this week as I put away 15 pairs fresh from the laundry. The result: 70 pairs that I’ve kept for myself. I really could stop now, but I have some lovely Must Stash yarn (they put up their yarn in two perfectly-matched sub-skeins)…
Oh, my! I love the way they turned out!
