Knit Gingko Socks, aka Painkiller Socks

I'm surprised that these socks are identical. Actually, I'm surprised the second sock even looks like a sock.

I worked on one sock while we were in New York visiting Alex's mom, and the second sock was mostly worked while I was high on painkillers after having my wisdom teeth removed. Clearly, not even bloody gauze and a few drugs will stop me from knitting.

Not so bad, eh?

Pattern: Toe Up Gingko Socks by Cotton & Cloud (FREE pattern!)
Yarn: Kraemer Yarns Saucon Sock in Purple purchased at Purl's Yarn Emporium here in Asheville

This was my first time knitting socks with a cotton/acrylic/nylon yarn, and I'm pretty impressed. I love the colors in the yarn, and they feel perfectly cozy. I might choose wool socks over these on a realllly freezing day, but I think these will work well for most of the winter.

And did I mention you can wash 'em in the washer and dry 'em in the dryer? Sweet deal.

  1. These socks are really lovely! The washing and drying in the washer and dryer is definitely a bonus, too. "Luckily," I've not yet knit myself a pair of socks, so I haven't had to worry about the laundering technicalities yet :)
