Sunberry Waffle Socks

First finished Ravellenics project:


Untitled


Pattern: Blueberry Waffle Socks by Sandy Turner
Needle: 2.75 mm
Yarn: Felici Sport in Sunny Day
Modifications: Adapted to toe up, 48 total stitches

They are also pair ten of twelve that I'm hoping to knit this year! (two more pairs to go! yay!) And they are modeled, for the first time, on the sock blockers Scott made me :)

This pattern has become one of my favorites! It is easy to memorize and to adapt. And it is so quick in sport weight! It makes an excellent textured sock that works well with self-striping yarn (and is a little more interesting than plain stockinette socks).

My next Ravellenic project is Dot the Dress Up Box Monster for the Toy Toss event.

What events are you competing in?

    1. Hi Katie! Thank you so much :) Yep, these are made from wire hangers! I had Scott do the initial unbending and reshaping, but I fine tuned them :)

  4. I love your socks! I started a pair of waffle socks YEARS ago - one was almost to the toe and I stopped. It got put away in my unfinished projects drawer and your lovely socks just reminded me that I want to finish mine. I am not even sure I will know where I left off!!!!!

    I love them!
