Meida' s Socks



hey i just finished meidas socks late last night! my mom really liked them so i made them for her for mothersday. i liked knitting this pattern, it s so easy to memorize. the only thing i would change about it if i was to knit the same one again: i did not like knitting the heel pattern. i m not very pleased with how it looks. maybe it s just the yarn i used? (Online Supersocke Cotton 380m/100g and Clover Bamboos 2.25mm) but they feel great and my mom will love them. now i ll go back to finishing my Go with the Flow and Embossed Leaves for myself. i also started the Anniversary Socks for my mother in law. she s got a birthday coming up. i better get back on that couch and knit. let me know what you think!

Very pretty!! Is that a partridge eye heel? I want to try that on the aocks I'm doing right now.

Very nice gift!

Beautiful! I've been thinking about doing this pattern.

it s called honeycomb heel.(all you do is alternate the slipped stitches on every right-side row)
it s simple, but i think it would have looked nicer in a wool yarn instead of the real soft cotton-woll mix i used. plus the original yarn is thicker than the one i used. other than that it looks nice and fits perfect. my mom will enjoy wearing them!

Very nice! I'm glad to see that pattern knitted up. Yours inspires me to give it a try.

These look so cute! I was wondering what they would look like "in person." Thanks for sharing - beautifully done. :)
