In my humble opinion, selfknit socks are the perfect Christmas gift. After all, what better represents the Christmas spirit than “I want you to feel warm and toasty so here’s a pair of socks to wrap your feet in”? QED.
This pair is for my uncle, who wears my knits faithfully and has therefore earned a permanent spot on the “recipient of knitted gifts” list. (Nothing better than seeing someone in something you’ve made yourself.) It’s a variation of Taylor’s Orange Toe-Up Socks which I’ve already knit twice before. I followed the pattern exactly save for the cuff: After about 11cm I interrupted the 2×2 ribbing with a CF2 on the knit stitches, following it with a CB2 on the second next row.
Happy holidays to y’all – wherever you are, I hope you feel loved, warm, peaceful and happy! Maybe you were the giver or even the recipient of handmade socks too ….? 🙂
