Socks I've made for me
These are the socks that were in the wash when I took the first photo.
All of these socks are cotton blend. From right to left (on both rows), we have:
Lang Jawoll Cotton... *love* these. Whenever I tell people I made yellow and orange striped socks, they think I'm crazy. But then they see these, and come around. ;) I'm not normally a yellow and orange person, but I *love* these crazy socks!
Meilenweit Cotton Fun & Stripes... mmm! My rainbow fix for summer! Very comfey too.
Meilenweit Cotton Fantasy... third pair of socks I made. I bought this yarn last minute before a conference, when I didn't have much selection. I wasn't crazy that the colours looked a bit faded, but they're very practical... they match lots of my t-shirts. (Even though I'm a "blue" person, I seem to have lots of green t-shirts.)
Regia Jacquard... I made these too long (I was curious how much came in a ball... *too* much), and am not crazy about the colour either. However, the yarn was cheap.
Lang Jawoll cotton... not my favourite colourway, and they've faded a bit, but still nice socks. Lang makes very nice yarn... very comfortable.
Sockotta... great colour, no pooling, very comfortable, and *great* price.
Last: another pair of Meilenweit Cotton Fantasy. Same comments as above, but this time they match my tank tops. ;)
Besides socks for me, I can remember making at least 8 other pairs... 3 for Alison, 1 for Bob, 2 for Mom (one pair of which was originally for me, but I couldn't wear because of the elastic), 1 for Valerie, and 1 for Josie. In the works: 1 for Bob, 2 for Mom, and my Sockapalooza pal's socks.
My original thought was that I'd reach an equilibrium where socks would wear out at the same rate that I was making them, but I have yet to wear out a pair. My sock drawer is getting rather full... but then, there's always different fun socks to make. ;)
