FO: Pity Party Socks

You may remember these from my sad sad story about losing my hat on the bus and trying to cheer myself up with a pair of socks. Imagine my heart break when I knit these socks too big for my tiny feet.

Luckily my mom had a birthday coming up so she was the lovely recipient of a pair of cushy hand knit socks.

I love how this yarn knits up! You're just knitting stockinette so it does all the work for you! It's also great motivation to keep knitting and see what pops up next. I still have a few balls of this left in my stash so I'm excited to make some for myself that actually fit. In addition after many size related issues (what do you mean I forgot to write my stitch count down?!) I'm trying my hand at two at a time knit socks soon. So keep an eye out for some soooccckkkkkkkkkkkkkkkssssss!


  1. Two at a time is fun! It takes a bit longer but it's so worth it at the end.

    I love self patterning sock yarn, too! It's like a big surprise while knitting.

    1. I've found that the patterned yarns keep me more motivated! I've been really intimidated by the magic loop method but I recently did a small project on them and I think I might be hooked! I'm just ready for socks that are the same size!
