Previously, I asked: Can I knit a second, full pair of socks by the end of the month? It turns out that I can. I finished the second heel after work today, which is why this picture is so dark.
These socks really flew off of my needles, but they did do a bit of traveling. Last weekend, I stayed in Washington, D.C. for a work conference. I had a tough Saturday, but at the end of the day I crawled into bed with my sock and a big glass of water and knit away until I couldn’t hold my eyes open anymore.
Sunday morning, I woke up early as usual and had plenty of time before I needed to be in a session. I made myself a—surprisingly delicious—cup of hotel room coffee. I pulled out my sock and sat on my bed and watched the sun rise over the city. Such a calming and peaceful morning.
I knit these as sock tubes and then cut in the heels, kirbywirby style:
I love the way that method works! These are knit out of Supercraftygirl in Day Drinking and the contrast color is Yarn Ink in Zest. I’m waiting until tomorrow to cast on the next pair of socks, but boy are they going to be rainbowy and delicious.

I love your socks!! The heels are fantastic. I’m going to try that method soon:)
These are wonderful. I like the way you did the heel 🙂
Oh they are gorgeous socks – I’ve never been brave enough to try afterthought heels like that but it’s on my list of techniques I really ought to try 🙂
Check my link for kirbywirby’s video, it really is a great tutorial 🙂
