Tidal Wave Socks August 7, 2007

Well at least now I can say I am not two yarn kits behind. Just barely. I have been such a scattered knitter these past months.

I decided to make Tidal Wave Socks from the April Rockin’ Sock Club 2007 kit. This is Socks that Rock Silkie in the Walking on the Wild Tide colorway. My apologies for a pic that does not really show the pattern all that well. I really loved how this pattern broke up the stripes and prevented pooling in these socks. Delightful! And the Silkie is so soft. I may make a scarf / shawl type thing with the other skein I have. This is definitely meant to be worn next to the skin!

These poor socks traveled through Cincinnati, Portland, Chicago, Orlando, and St. Louis. They’ve got mileage!

Thank you, my sister made me a pair of these same kind of socks last year for Christmas. I now can make her a pair too; she does not have to find her pattern.
Agian thank you.

Thank you for visiting 🙂

I have yet to knit with STR sock yarn and am impressed with how well the pattern and yarn complement each other — love those hand knit socks!

I’m not part of the Mystery Stole 3 KAL, but I’m slogging away on my first lace shawl, too.
