Spiral Socks

 I was shopping one day with my Mom and this sock yarn just jumped out at me,
 so I had to buy it! I have not knit a pair of socks in a while.

 I saw a free pattern there that was for the Spiral pattern from Paton’s, but they had you knit it as tube socks. I did not like that, so I made a few changes to it.

 I like to knit my socks from the toe up. But I do not like double pointed needles, so I have sworn them off!!
  I knit my socks the magic loop method, this time I tried knitting them two at a time.

 I decided to  knit the slip stitch heel.  But I didn’t have the right amount of stitches!!  So I tried figuring out if there was a formula to use with my number of stitches. I had about 60 sts give or take a few! I thought I almost had it, but not quite!

So I googled it!! And guess what, there was a formula!! I was excited!   
Someone out there had figured it out, it is from Knot Another Hat  It is really cool and I love the heel!

I finished them last night !! 
Well almost I just had to bind off one sock today!  
If you would like to see more about the socks you can look at my Ravelry account. 


  1. I love the colors! They turned out really well. Your so good with formulas and all that math suff :)

  2. Thanks K-Dee, I love them too! They are a bit scratchy but I'm hoping that when I wash them they will soften up.
