Parade of socks

I’ve been doing a lot of this this week:

Grafting the sock toe

Socks come off of the sock machine with waste yarn in between.

I remove the yarn, loading the stitches onto two needles and then graft the toe closed. This makes a seamless toe sock which is really comfortable to wear.

That pile of colorful new yarn that I showed last week is to replace what I’ve used to make these:

Hand dyed yarn from Ellen’s 1/2 Pint Farm in so many luscious colors. Custom knit socks available for order. I can’t guarantee holiday delivery at this point but I think they’re worth the wait!
