Sock it to me

I finished Philip's socks a few days ago, but I wanted to photograph them on his feet instead of posting another pair of socks laying on the floor. These are just basic stockinette stitch socks with a short-rowed heel and a banded toe, these are my favorite methods.

yoga socksWhile I am on the subject of socks, here is my finished yoga sock design for the next issue of Take Back the Knit. The purpose of the sock is to provide a little warmth while the open heel and toes allows your foot to grip the mat. I made both socks with one ball of stash yarn so it felt like a free project.

I started knitting the hand grenade from Knitorama to mix things up a little before I start the vintage-style knee socks that will be my next project. I have to muster up the courage to try the two socks on one circ method again because these will be the magic socks.

Oh wow, I totally want to make those yoga socks! I can't wait for the issue to come out!!! What yarn from your stash for the socks (for my list -- and write me to add more!). I love the colors on Philip's socks!

I used some dreambaby from my stash. About a year ago it went onsale at my LYS and I bought a bunch to make some rainbow kneesocks that I never made.
