Summer of Socks 08 - Pair #5

Finally! My fifth pair of socks for Summer of Socks 08 are complete. The knitting was completed yesterday and I just kitchenered the toe 15 minutes ago. I am yet again happy with my new socks. Here's the stats:

Charade by Sandra Park
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Thin; Colorway - Blueberry Sorbet
Needles: Knit Picks Fixed Circs Size #1.5
Started: July 29th
Finished: August 15th

The only modifications I did was to make the leg of the sock longer and then when it came to the toe decreases, I did the same amount of decreases but just in less rows. If I had completed the toe as written, I would have needed another half a foot to fill these babies. I love the color of this yarn. The pooling of colors makes me want to get some sorbet right now!

As true to form, I have already casted on for my next pair. Hopefully I will finish these sooner than three weeks now that I am back in good knitting form.


  1. Cute socks. The color just screams dessert!

  2. Oh Happy Birthday to youuuuuu...Happy Birthday to youuuuuu...Happy Birrrrthday Dear Deborah. Happy Birthday to you!

  3. Birthday? It's your Birthday? Happy birthday, Deb!!

    Great sox - wonderful color. I would have done the same with the toes - what's with that, anyway?
