Socks for June

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

I’m continuing on my goal of finishing a pair of socks a month for the year of 2011. So far the only month I didn’t win was April… but I’m giving myself an out because I finished three pair in January and I was a little busy getting engaged.

May came back around with Mom’s socks and I’m officially already done with my socks for June!

I started these socks awhile back but they have been purse knitting for awhile. I LOVE the yarn and the way it stripes.

The details:

  • Yarn: Three Ewes Twisted in Fiber in their Ewe Shimmer Sock Yarn
  • Colorway: Round the Twist
  • Needles: US 2
  • Pattern:  Simple Toe Up With an After Thought Heel

They are still drying, but I think these are going to be a great pair of summer socks. Yes, I am weird and wear wool socks year round. Generally speaking it’s because I’m always cold in the summer with AC on, but I also love the feeling of wearing hand knit socks.

I love this yarn, because it is so light and fluffy. It is 50% Merino and 50% Tencel. It’s still a pair of wool socks but with a lighter feel… PERFECT for summer!

The best part about finishing socks on a weekend? Kicking off a new week with a new pair of socks 🙂
