Plain, With Bumps


Yarn: Pagewood Farm Chugiak, 100% Merino Wool, Colorway Charcoal.
Pattern: Simple Textured Socks.
Needles: #1 (2.25mm) dpns


Comments: I love the yarn; it is a dream to knit. I also like the soft texture of the sock pattern. And I am crazy about the color. Gray/grey---however you spell it, it's a classic. Did you know there's a Ravelry group called Grey Rules for those of us who can't imagine our wardrobes without that versatile color?
Here, modeled in my convertible anklet form.
Still knitting...

I really like this pattern. It should go very nicely for a man's sock. The gray/grey color is awesome!
I'm knitting up a pair of your Winterscape socks at the moment with Shibui Knits yarn. Loving the pattern!

Recently I have been enthralled in getting the Pagewood Farm Alyeska yarn.....but don't want to come up off the $30 per hank ;op Haha!

Great socks as usual!! I swear you need to come up with your own design book of simple socks (no..FOR REAL!!)

I love subtle solids, and the subtle texture wtih the subtle solid is simply sublime. ;-)

Great knitting and great photos. I hope you share this pattern, too. You do wonders in matching yarn with exactly the right pattern design.

I think these are my favorites of all your socks...until you come up with the next pair, that is. :-)

That's what you'd call a good grey - for some reason it reminds me of slate cliffs, I just love the way the yarn has heathered. It's a new yarn to me - another one to add to the yarn stalking list I think!

Looks like socks I'd like to mneak and wear. Good job.

Those socks look absolutely squishy and comfy. Love the color -- especially nice against the deck railing!

Sally said...

Love, love, love these!!

What a sock wardrobe you must have!

Suzanne said...

Wow another amazing pair. Those are really nice looking!! One question for you on the "footies" pattern... after the join, what does BOR stand for... I am sure its something simple, but I don't have a clue!! Thanks :)

I like.... I REALLY like!! The pattern..the color...everything! Are you going to write this one up??

Mom's birthday was yesterday. She really liked the footies. Now she wants a pink pair and a blue pair. Sigh.... She is my biggest fan!
