Nebraska Hot Socks

Lisa S., for the MMST, knit the Nebraska Hot Socks. They are made using Bartlett 2-ply (100% wool worsted) on size 7 dpns and they were her first socks ever! Lisa says the pattern was concise and easy to follow and knit up quickly. She added that these socks are super heavy boot socks or great for kicking back next to the fire and watching the snow fall. This is super socknitting. I can't believe these were Lisa's 'first socks', can you? :-) The URL for this sock is: http://knitting.about.com/hobbies/knitting/library/blhotsocks.htm?terms=hot+socks&PM=113_300_T


 
Briggs and Little Socks These great looking striped socks are Cathie's MMST socks made from The Briggs and Little Child Sock Pattern. Cathie used some great yarn called Wellamo from Finland that she actually purchased in Ireland. These socks are going to Children In Common for some little boy or girl. Cathie says even though the leg looks thin, it stretches, but is firm, so it will stay up. Clink on the hot link below to find this great pattern. http://www.cs.oswego.edu/~ebozak/knit/troop-knitting/children-socks.html

 


Susiannah's American Girl Socks

These cute little American Girl Doll Socks by Elise (sorry, don't know the last name) are Susiannah's contribution to the MMST. Susiannah says she knitted the first sock according to the pattern but felt there was a problem with the heel flap and changed the pattern for the second sock (the one on the top in the photo.)

These pretty socks are Kay's MMST project. They are the Aran Braid socks by Kathleen Hubbard made with Brown Sheep Wildfoote yarn. She did the first sock as written, following the pattern with the front cross cable down the foot. She reports experimenting on the second sock, modifying the pattern for a braid (made up of alternating fc and bc) to continue down the foot. Kay says, "some of us are wildly independent, sometimes preferring to change our direction rather than follow the well marked path." So true! So true!
