For Wizards and Sisters

This is a pattern I've had in my favorites for a long time. My oldest sister told me she could never have enough socks, so I decided to try this pattern with a self-striping yarn for her birthday.

knit in ONline Supersocke 100 in the Comedy colorway


This is a super easy four-row pattern. I've recently decided I prefer my sock patterns to be simple. I want to be able to tell where I am by looking at the sock, not by following a 24-row chart. If I want something really hard, I'll knit a wrap where everyone will see it all the time. Very few people hang out around my feet. I try not to take this personally.


That being said, you bet I'm going to knit the Delias eucharis socks from Knitters' Curiosity Cabinet Vol. II as part of the October-November KAL on Ravelry. Will they be easy? Probably not. Will they be gorgeous? Definitely!

  1. Love these! I am ready to give socks a serious try. Do you knit on double points or use one long circular for two at a time? I want a "fast" sock knitting experience (LOL)! I have my yarn ready!
