More Stripy Socks

purple and black striped socks purple and black stripey socks 2 periwinkle and black socks

Here are the socks I made for Mom and Donna for Xmas. The plum/purple were for Mom, and the Periwinkle/blue for Donna. The colored yarns are “Shine Sport” from Knit Picks (60% Pima cotton, 40% Modal – 110 yards, 50 grams per skein – colors “Serenade” and “Hydrangea”). The black yarn is a very thin alpaca that I got on eBay. (The black yarn is thinner than the colored ones.)

The toe, heel, and cuff on each sock is done with the two threads together, and the rest is done in a spiraling stripe of the two yarns. The only thing I have trouble with still with socks is stopping the heel work before it gets too pointy.
