A Week and A Day

At the urging of Susan, I decided to knit up one of my Rhinebeck, Socks That Rock purchases.  I made knee socks for DD#2.  The yarn is their medium weight, so they knit up very quickly on US size 3 needles.  A week and a day for a pair of knee socks isn't bad in this house.





I know they don't quite reach her knees.  It's as far as I could go.  Below is all the yarn I had left.
It's a good thing she has thin legs and feet.  I'd have never had enough if those size 9 1/2 feet of hers were wide!



Yarn:  Socks That Rock Medium Weight
Colorway:  Waterlilies
Needles:  Addi Turbos US size 3
Pattern:  Sock Wizard for Mac - I love it, put in her measurements and poof, the math is done for me!

Very nice!

They turned out great!

The socks look great! Did you use two skeins or just one? And what's this Sock Wizard?!?!? Where can you get it?!?!? (I have a Mac as well)

Those are so cute! I hope Hannah doesn't see this post or she'll be wanting a pair, too.

At least, you won't have to wonder what to do with the leftovers. ;^)

Great job!

Those are great - it's amazing how tall a pair you can get out of one skein!

I love the socks! A week and a half for a pair - not bad at all. I'm like a month and half, if I'm lucky. lol.

Your kid wears a size 9 1/2. Holy cow. Have you feeding your kids fertilizer? ;)

Great socks! Your dd is one lucky girl (and she shares my shoe size!)

Those socks are so cool!!! I think a week and a day is pretty speedy too. Love them!!

oOoh! *mental note* i have some STR medium weight lying around. as if i didn't have enough socks to knit (i started another one on sunday)...i would never have guessed your daughter's feet were 9.5's! mine are only 7's and they have been since i was in 9th grade. dang. your kids are probably taller than i am, too. haha!

Oh yay! Finally I get to see STR that is knit up, and it's absolutely wonderful! I love how the colors play. Must, must have some of this some day. Thanks loads..and I think you are a very speedy knitter~

Cute socks. I really like the photos, too. It looks like I could get a pair of knee-highs out of that with my short legs and small feet. Thanks for the info!

These socks are fabulous!
I won the skein of Ocean you donated as a prize for Karen at Musing of a Mostly self-taught knitter, and it is so beautiful! I feel so lucky to have it! Stay toned for what I use it for!!!!

Great looking pair of socks and love all these wonderful closeup shots. The heel especially! Just beautiful!

They are beautiful! I wish I had the patience to knit knee highs!


Those are super cute!
