Just in time for sandal weather...

Pattern: Lady's Plain Winter Socks (same as Gentleman's Plain Winter Socks) from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks
Needles: US 1 circs (legs and feet) and dpns (heels and gussets)
Yarn: Knit Picks Simple Stripes (75% superwash wool, 25% nylon) in Storm
Started/Finished: April 4/April 14
Mods: As with J's socks, I grafted the last 14 stitches of the toe to finish.

If I can toot my own horn for a moment, did you notice that the stripes match up? If not, here's another shot that might make it more obvious:


  1. Yay for matching stripes! Your socks look fantastic!

  2. Love those matching stripes and yes, I DID notice!!!!!! I used the same yarn (Sweet Tarts though) on #0 dpns - too tight. Next time I am trying #2 dpns and see how I do. Your's are gorgeous!!!!

  3. WOOHOO matching stripes!!! Cool socks, SJ!

  4. My daughter's would say, "Look, first position!" Cute socks. Love the colors. (first position is a ballet term in case that didn't make any sense)

  5. Oh my gosh, the stripes DO perfectly match up! How on earth did you do that? They are fabulous!!

  6. Jen and I were knittin' and talkin' last eve, and we discussed the virtue of matching stripes in handknitted sock. You have achieved the pinnacle of matchiness!
