Sock Ninja!

I feel like a sock knitting ninja lately. I’m churning socks out one after the other and there is no stopping me!

Pattern: My own

Yarn: Knit Picks Felici Aquarium

I grabbed this colourway to start a mindless pair of socks on the way to the aquarium with T and some family. The fashion show from Knit East was held at the Huntsman’s Aquarium and while Heidi and I opted to get a good meal in instead of attend the reception before the fashion show, we didn’t really get to see much of it while we were there. I knew my little marine lover would enjoy a trip back there and when Grammy suggested it we went on a little road trip.

It wasn’t until I pulled out the ball of yarn on the way that I realized the colourway was actually called Aquarium. Once again Felici’s stripes sucked me in and these worked up quite quickly. No SSS here!

I was already planning my next pair of socks before these ones were finished. It didn’t take long for me to grab the next ball and cast on right away.

┬áMore Knit Picks Felici in Building Blocks this time, a colour that is being discontinued. The pattern is Groovy Socks by Caroline Hegwer. The pattern is free and is basically a 2 row repeat that is easily memorized but creates a beautiful pattern. I’m knitting these top down with a heel flap, a bit opposite to how the pattern is written but its working out beautifully!

Are you knitting any fun socks or patterns at the minute?

  1. I’m hoping to be a Sock Ninja between now and Christmas. I just started the Groovy Socks as well and hope to start a few more from my queue soon. Pass on some Mojo, please!

  2. Love that lacy pattern. Only a 2 row repeat? I’m sold. Looks so fancy to be so easy. Obviously, great colourway on those aquarium socks. Blue, turquoise, green? Yes please.

  3. I have two pairs of socks on needles right now and I’m thinking about starting another project. My socks just take me forever for some reason. ::sigh:: I love handknit socks, though…

  4. How funny! I just got some of the Building Blocks to knit a pair of Groovy Socks for me, after the holiday knitting is done. The other for me in that package is Loch Ness and Sassquatch to stripe in a pair of socks – or maybe colorwork.

  5. I’m knitting “ugly” socks right now. I’ve had the yarn about 6 years now, and my daughter wanted them. They are black/white, with red heels and toes. My son always shakes his head, and asks when I’ll be done with the ugly socks when he walks by, but I think they are fun socks. :)

  6. No, I’m not knitting socks, but you’re making me want to drop my sweater and cast on a pair. I have some felici too. I think I’ll queue up that pattern for after Christmas.

  7. Love the socks! I have a couple of pairs of self-patterning vanilla socks on the go. A bag of four new skeins arrived in today’s mail (for some reason my brain worries about running out of sock yarn in case of a zombie acopolypse even though I have bins of the stuff already) and I’m going to have a tough time not starting those before the others are finished.

  8. You’re definitely a Ninja knitting all these lovely socks! I love the green pair, I bet those stripes are so addicting! I’m knitting Elena’s pattern, Saffron, right now. Kid-sized sweaters are so much fun!

  9. Not much of a sock knitter but those stripes are fancy! The only non-design knitting are some colourwork projects, incidentally by the same designer, knittedbliss!

  10. Love them both!! Can’t wait to get my Christmas knitting done so I can get back to my own socks! Added Groovy Socks to my queue. :)

  11. hi Kelly, i’m working on knit pics felici self striping as well…on my 3rd pair, and I have the same discontinued colorway waiting to be knitted up. I love the groovy socks!! Also, I’ve started knitting the red shawl you recently finished…very I cast on immediately with some delish tosh dk, i’m loving the construction, very fun knit. hope you are keeping warm up there!
