Waffle Knit Socks for Jake

One day, my cousin Jake told me he would like to up his sock game. I think he was starting to be jealous of all Alex's hand knit socks.

In the past Jake has given me some of his art, like a drawing of a lumberjack and a drawing of a kid with a worm (which I realize is hard to picture, but trust me that it's really cool). So I figured it was only fair for me to give him some of my art.


Pattern: Waffle Rib Socks by Carolyn (Jill) Ferneau
Yarn: Pandora's Yarn Luxe

I bought this yarn at Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair (SAFF) last year, and I used it to make one other pair of socks in a different color for my friend Jessica. This yarn is no longer available, but it's nice, soft, and fun to work with.

The one difficult part about making socks for someone new to hand knit socks is that they can't put them in the dryer like they can regular socks. But it's nice to convert someone over to the hand knit world for the first time. Knit socks really are the best.
