Socknitters Photo Pages, Too
Page Two


     This is Dawn's rendition of "Dad's Easy Cable Socks" from the Socks3
     book. She used a worsted weight wool/alpaca mix called "Dublin", 
     with size 7 needles. Dawn says this is a very easy staggered cable
     pattern and she did the cabling pattern all the way down the foot like
     the pattern calls for, but it doesn't show too well in the picture. Thanks
     for sharing with us, Dawn.



Joan says she has knit several pair of socks in the past six months, but these are the first she thought "worthy" of being on the Socknitters' Page! This is her first attempt at kool-aid dying and she is thrilled with the variegated red colors. The original yarn was a vintage 100% wool in natural color. Joan used kool-aid mixed at half-strength, full-strength, and even poured the dry kool-aid powder directly onto the wet wool to get an especially intense color!  The sock pattern is "generic" ... of no particular pattern but the one that is in her head, but Joan says she did try EZ's garter stitch border for the heel and loved how easy it was to pick up the stitches...and look! no hole! YIPPY! :) Thanks, Joan, for sharing your socks and your Kool-Aid dying techniques with us.


Jeannie sends this photo of two socks she's made recently. The top one is made with Lang Bebe Wool and the larger one is of Superlana Stampato. What great socks! Thanks Jeannie.



Here are some wonderful entrelac socks made by Rebecca from Persian needlepoint yarn. The entrelac stripes and toes were done on 2.75mm needles and the rest of the sock on 3.25mm needles. Aren't these great?

Jane made these adorable fulled and jeweled socks for her DD who, Jane says, is a fashion diva. Not only do the jewels serve as decoration but remind DD not to throw the socks in the dryer. These socks were made from Dawn Borocco's pattern from Bartlett's yarn in lupine color. There's not a little girl in the world who wouldn't love these unique socks!
