Seaweed patterned socks

Created in this Craftsy class

Knit Original Cuff-Down Socks taught by Donna Druchunas

Warm, cozy and cute that's what your feet will be when you put them in hand-knit socks. Inspired, happy and proud that's how you'll feel when you're the one who knit them by hand.

What materials did you use? 100% wool, 5-ply I used teal on the main part of the sock and purple variegated yarn on the cuff and toe

What are you most proud of? I'm happy they socks turned out the same size!! (occasionally mine haven't) I'm also happy the pattern worked out well and I was able to make these on 2 circular needles instead of the dpn's. This is a first for me.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Believe you CAN do a pattern, for starters. This one is fairly simple, with just a 6-st repeat. Take your time and enjoy the process.

I really like your socks! The colors are cool, my favorite colors.

Thanks. By the way, your profile name gave me a bit of a start as my husband's name is Dave. Funny.

Your devotion to knitting shows! I, too, once used that seaweed pattern for a pair of fingerless mitts. I couldn't seem to "get with" the pattern sequence. :( Good for you to stick with it! Thanks for sharing. You are instigating the desire to pick up that project once again.

I'm glad. I'll be waiting to see a photo of your finished mitts :)
