FO: Second Socks for Izzy

Let the kiddo pick out her own sock yarn at Michaels — the right price-point for a growing teen with a tendency to be extra tough on her clothes. I'll give it to her: Izzy located a skein with cashmere in it.

Pattern: Yarn Harlot's Sock Recipe
Yarn: Loops & Threads Luxury Sock (Ocean)

These socks also mark a first: major surgery. When both pairs were done, Izzy tried them on...only to discover that I'd made the foot too short. So I snipped apart the toes, ripped back to the start of the toe decreases, added a good 1/2", and then finished them up again. Can't tell you how clever it made me feel.


  1. Lucky Izzy! They're beautiful.

  2. Ooh, very pretty! I'm impressed with your successful surgery, too. They look great!

  3. Those socks look awesome! I love striping yarn, it means you can knit the socks as fast as possible, and still have lots of visual interest. They look great!
