Hell Fire !

Hell Fire!
It's Knitterly Things
colorway in
100% Superwash Merino Wool



A toe-up plain vanilla sock knit in Stockinette stitch
with a ribbed cuff



I've added a strand of this yarn and





held it double with the sock yarn in the toe area
for re-enforcement.


Aren't they handsome looking sox?

♥ ♥ ♥ They're for Hubby, of course !!! ♥ ♥ ♥

    1. Vesper does an excellent job on these self-stiping yarn and the yarn works up really nicely.
      Easy to knit with.

  3. Awesome! What bind off do you like for your toe-up socks? All the ones I've tried have been too tight or too loose. Yours looks perfect!

    1. Thanks, Gail. It's just the plain bo. Knit 2, pass the first k st over the second, k another and pass over.
      I do the sts loose so the cuffs do not leave a mark on the ankles. Since they are cuffs I just k all the sts rather than bo in pattern.

  4. Excellent vanilla socks. I especially like what happens between the ankle and the heel.

    1. When using this yarn I use the after thought heel and
      attempt to following the stripeing pattern in sequence.

    1. This yarn makes it easy to go matchy-matchy.
      Don't forget, Anna Marie, he puts up with my goings-on - he more than deserves these and more.

    1. Can you believe - - -
      since I finished three pair of sox this month
      I have not one pair on the needles at the moment.
      This is the very first time that has ever happened.

    1. Believe me the yarn has to take most of the credit for this heel.
      I do the afterthought heel and begin the yarn in the same color stripe as when I put the waste yarn in.
      Love to have you visit and Comment,
      hugs

  12. Goodness, it's hard to catch up with all your projects! You're a knitting ninja! Love all those socks! I think I need to finish the pair I have on my needles so I can cast on another pretty sock project now!

    1. A couple of these sox have been on the needles for a while. Although the pink was no further than the toes - so that was a long haul to finish. The Bridge of Roses only had the ribbing left, so that was a quick finish.
      I'm ready to co another stripey pair of sox FOR ME ! ! !
