Socks by the sea

Although almost all my time this week has been spent in the garden, there has been a little knitting in the evenings when it’s too dark to play in the dirt.

After casting off my mother-in-law’s socks, I grabbed one of the skeins of Knit Pick’s Static that I have in my stash. This colourway is Seascape. It’s a man sock… though I haven’t decided which man it will end up with. I’m just knitting and I’ll decide closer to gifting time.

I’m already at the start of the heel, and what I find interesting is that even though this sock is WAY bigger than the ones I made my MIL, it feels like it’s going so much faster. My only idea for why is because the yarn is much nicer to knit with than the Kroy.

Kroy is a great wearing yarn, but it’s definitely not the softest. The Static is right on par with Knit Picks’ Stroll and Felici. It makes the process so much more enjoyable. That said… it could still take me months to finish these… they are man socks after all.

  1. I enjoy all of Knit Picks sock yarns, including Static. And you’re very right. Much nicer to knit with than Kroy. I would love to buy more since it’s on sale, but I’m on a yarn diet this year, trying to use. up some of my stash. That will be a great man’s sock.
