holiday wrapup part 3


I still have a few more gifts to get through on my 2008 holiday recap.

On December 22nd I finished up my father-in-law’s Christmas socks.  These photos are very boring because, let’s be honest, they are boring, all-brown, all-stockinette stitch socks.


Pattern:  N/A  I used a basic sock “recipe” from a booklet I got from my LYS many years ago.  2×2 rib for the cuff, stockinette leg and foot, flap-style reinforced heel with gusset, and regular (wedge?) toe.

Size:  64 sts around, and his foot is 9″ around and 10.5″ long.

Yarn:  Regia 4ply in color # 1231 (brown), 2 50g balls

Needles: 2.5mm dpns


Dates:  October 27 – December 22 2008 (but only took so long because I waited for my in-laws to get back from Florida to try on the first socks for size).

Modifications:  None.

As usual you can find my finished (and unfinished!) projects in my “projects” page by clicking the tab up at the top of every page on my blog, and I also have this project in my Ravelry notebook here.


A quick wrap in a care label and one yarn baggie later, and this gift was ready to go too!  Once this was done it meant I was finally able to start my sister-in-law’s mittens.  I finished these socks around 11:30pm on the 22nd, so the Christmas gift mittens were only started on December 23rd.  No pressure!

  1. Great projects!

    Any baby yet?


  2. Boring, stockinette socks are the bread and butter of the knitting world, my dear.


  3. Boring or not, they look nice and cozy. I’m sure the recipient will love them!
