Color Block Socks


Color Block Socks



Color Block Socks

Jumping Jacks Socks {variation}

Fish Lips Kiss Heel



I might have started a little trend when I took advantage of my youngest granddaughter's spunky personality to be my shawl model. It was only fitting that I engaged my eldest granddaughter to model the color block socks made from the same yarn as the shawl.
I knew I wanted to make color block socks but had never made a pair before. I didn't know how or when to change the colors. Through trial and error I figured it out and I am pleased with the finished socks.
I basically used my own pattern with 16 stitches cast on and measurements that I figured out work best for me, along with the Fish Lips Kiss Heel and this pattern for the decorative stitched section on the cuff.
Until this photo shoot I hadn't realized that Makenzie has passed me up in shoe size. It won't be long until she's taller than me too! I am glad I have 4 granddaughters to help me model some of my handmades.

Pattern: My Own Socks with a Fish Lips Kiss Heel and the Jumping Jacks decorative stitches.

They're such lovely socks - and that stitch pattern below the cuff is a brilliant touch. They akdo coordinate beautifully with the shawl :-)
