Tosh Socks – Finally!

I’ve had a finished pair of socks for a couple of weeks but I’ve had so much else to blog about (for a change!) that this is the first chance I’ve had to post them.

You know the pattern, of course.

The yarn is Madeline Tosh sock yarn and it’s very nice.  The yarn is a little thinner than I prefer for socks, though, and the colors were prettier in the skein than I think they are knit up.

Nevertheless, they are soft and warm and will be a welcome addition to the sock rotation this fall.

  1. I like them. They have a nice symmetry. The colors are unusual and good together.

  2. I was just thinking about your sock rotation and my sock rotation. I’d have to wash socks every other day or so! 🙂 But I’m getting ready to cast on for a pair of your socks and I’ll fix that situation.

    I see what you mean about the colors. Your socks are lovely but the colors really popped before they were knitted. Have you had socks that have gone the other way – looked better as socks than in the skein?

  3. Gorgeous as always!! I’m on vacation and my goal is to make matching sock to all the lonely single socks in my knitting bag that need a mate!

  4. I really like the colors – very different! I have some wonderful sock yarn on the way from Crafts Meow – thinking of using your pattern since it shows off the colors so well.

  5. The colors look beautiful to me. They may end up surprising you. More than once I’ve been — not dissatisfied, but less pleased than I hoped to be with a pair of socks, not liking the pattern or the colors weren’t what I thought they’d be, only to find that once they’re in rotation I reach for them all the time.

  6. It’s a little hard to see now but looking at the colors in the sock I can see that they must’ve been nice in the skein. The socks are still nice and I’m sure that they’ll be just as warm.

  7. indeed a very different bunch of colors. very pretty.
    And I think that you will really enjoy their cheeriness come fall.

  8. Lovely . . . but I hope you won’t be needing them for a while! The colors remind me of fall!

  9. Oh, they are bee-yoo-tee-ful! I’ve been looking at MadTosh for a while and not much liking the colors in the skeins. Funny, that. Now I’ll have to reconsider, when I get off my yarn diet.

  10. I had the same issue with a skein of variegated madtosh. They pooling eventually grew on me, and they are OMG SUPER soft after the first washing so that totally makes up for it! I have since moved on to their semi-solid colors and they are dreeeaaamy!
