I like your socks. That's such a cool way to increase for the calf. I'm in love with knee socks at the moment too but there isn't enough sock yarn in my stash to knit them. So I'll have to wait for an opportunity to shop online and get more yarn.


Great socks. I really like your approach to the calf shaping. Beautiful pictures too.

i do love that last photo, too, the rustic wool and the brown shoes. so comfy!


I love that color! I made a pair of regular sized retro ribs for my Mom and I really liked the pattern. I've been pondering making a pair in black for my husband. Of course I'm waiting for a sunny day so I can see what I'm doing.


Love the colour!
But do they really stay up? I have heard this is a problem with hand knit knee highs.


Elizabeth, the socks are very snug, alarmingly so at first, but they loosened up a bit. It might be because they are so long, or because they are snug, but even though they got a bit baggy around the ankles they still stayed up pretty much all day. They drooped a bit but not more than an inch or so. Not bad, I thought.

Lovely socks; beautiful color; clever shaping.


Well, regardless of whether your decreases worked the way you hoped, the socks look fabulous!


Gorgeous, cozy socks! I love the subtle color-shifts of the Nature Wool and the calf-shaping you designed is so wonderfully lovely.


Love them! We're heading into summer now, but once the weather starts getting cooler again I imagine a pair of knee socks would be perfect.


They are great knee-hi's! Very impressed with the v-shaped gusset at the calf, too! ;)


wow. just lovely. I aspire to knit something as fabulous. And, I never thought of using a more worseted weight yarn, great idea.
