Socks for Jen

Long car rides, like the one to Gettysburg, make for great knitting opportunities.  I finished a pair of socks on the way down – just in time to make 9 finished pairs by the end of June.  These also make my first finished pair for Summer of Socks 09.

These are for my sister-in-law, Jen.  Her birthday was a few weeks ago so technically they are late.  But since she didn’t know I was making them, I figure it’s okay.  Plus, this is her first ever pair of handknit socks and I think she’ll find they were worth waiting for.

I cannot remember what the yarn is.  I know I didn’t buy it so it was either from a swap or it was an outright gift from a reader.  I’m pretty sure it was handdyed by the sender and I wish I could remember who gave it to me.  It’s gorgeous!  The colors didn’t pool at all and it knit up beautifully.

Happy Birthday, Jen!  Wear ’em in good health!

  1. those are gorgeous.
    I’ve been a little scared to try to knit socks… maybe I should venture out and give them a go.

  2. And I was all set to run out and buy a bit of that beautiful yarn. I guess your memory lapse was at least good for my wallet. Nice job on the socks.

  3. Lovely!! I need ginger, my magic wristbands and clear highway to be able to knit in the car without losing my lunch so I’m very impressed!

  4. Those are fabulous! I wish I could claim that was the yarn I dyed for you, but it’s not: mine was much greener.

  5. Very pretty socks. They look a lot like the Fiesta Boomerang ones I knit a while back. The colors are very close.

  6. Nice socks. That yarn is just lovely, such pretty blues. I am sure they will be highly appreciated.

  7. I hope she loves them. If she doesnt, you just send them over here to me. I LOVE THEM. My sock mojo is somewhere in a drawer I think. I am not worried, I am engrossed in other knitting currently. I have so much sock yarn………enjoy your fourth as well. KNitting on tap for me AND work. 🙂 Little firecrackers being born all the time.
