I've changed gears and started making socks again. I love the usefulness of jumpers, but I have much sock yarn in my stash that needs to be turned into socks, and those socks make for wonderful gifts. Maybe someone particularity cold-hearted might turn down a pair, but what ice queen wouldn't want a pair of these?
Quick, plain jane socks. The yarn is Online Supersock 4-ply City Color. This yarn is fantastic- it's affordable and the 75% superwash 25% nylon blend is just the easy-care hard-wearing for non-knitters who can't be arsed with handwashing their precious.
The colors are fun. I didn't bother trying to line them up, giving them a charmingly mismatched quality.
Pattern is my basic toe-up two at a time sock with the Fleegle heel, and a couple inches of ribbing at the top.
Best part, they took me all of 8 days to make. I'm not a speedy knitter, but that's really fast as far as sock knitting goes. For me, anyway.
