Maleficent Socks Complete


Over the weekend while moving our daughter from the old apartment to the new apartment, I finished my socks.  You know, the maleficent socks.


Are you a matchy matchy sock knitter?  I am.  I take pride in how close the matching is and this pair I think I'm within a row of identical socks.  This is without counting rows, just using locking stitch marker clips and a measuring tape.


I'm keeping this pair for me and I've tucked them away in my woolen sock drawer.  Waiting for those crisp fall days that will be here in three months.

  2. You are a master at sock knitting Karen. Wow, those stripes are perfect. In my younger years I wanted everything to match, now it doesn't bother me as much.

  12. They look like happy socks. That's the vibe I'm getting anyway. They also look like the kind of socks that just might persuade me to knit some myself, maybe ;)

  13. Wow, Karen, they are perfect! I really need to try socks, I keep saying I will, and as of yet, have not. Can I join you for a cup of tea one day, and you can tell me the secrets to sock knitting :)

  14. Love me some matchy matchy!! Although the hand spun ones I just finished are knit 2 at a time from both ends of the skein.....also fun and a little bit daring!! In the end it's a pair of warm wooly's for your toes so its all good!!

  16. Hi Sweets! I just tried to comment but I don't know if it worked.
    As I was saying...you are a pro knitter. Some people have it, and some don't. And you DO!

  17. perfect!!!! LOVE these!!!
    I've lately liked the matchy-matchy challenge....although I also love making the odd-ball bits and pieces socks that don't match anywhere....once you have 2 done, you can just keep adding onesies to the mix!!! I guess I just like knitting socks!! :)

  20. I love them! The colors are vibrant and warm and hopefully will not make you feel maleficient when you wear them ; ) I'm kind of a nut about matching my stripes so I'm with you on that one. Can't wait to see what's next on your needles!
