I usually show you something I’ve finished when I post the title Wednesdays Are For Knitting. This week, though, I need your help selecting a sock pattern. You see, it has been determined, by Hannah and I, that I will knit her socks to wear on her wedding day. She’s wearing these adorable Kate Spade sparkly sneakers and we think a pair of hand knit socks will be just.the.thing.
I was going to knit the socks with some Fleece Artist yarn I’ve hard for ages but I was . . . ahem . . . perusing The Loopy Ewe the day after we made this decision and I found Dream In Color Smooshy (with cashmere) in a beautiful shade of blue called . . . wait for it . . . Iceland. It was fate, I tell you.
The truth is that Hannah would be perfectly fine with a pair of my plain ole picot edge socks. But. These are wedding socks, friends, and I feel like they need to be a little extra, you know? There are things to consider, though. One is that Hannah isn’t a big fan of too much going on with socks. Another is that the pattern needs to be simple enough that I can get them done without fussing over them too much. I was really leaning towards my old standby, Feather and Fan, because the pattern is easily memorized and I know they will fit. But then I thought, I’ve got an arsenal of knitting experts at my disposal. Perhaps I’m missing out on a pattern that would be perfectly wonderful for wedding socks.
So, I’m asking. Given all I’ve mentioned, what sock pattern would you recommend I use?
