No longer skewed

I finished the Skew socks.

Yarn: Sensations Soles & More
Content:75% wool / 25% nylon
Color: Purple/Pink/Grey
Care: Wash cold, lay flat to dry
Needles: US 00 / 1.75 mm

The sizing of the sock works out to be about a size 5 or 6 in US sizes for women. See, I told you the socks would be small. So I am not sure there is one of you on the interwebs that has feet that small(or you know someone) and are interested in the skew socks. If you are, leave a message stating so and you will be entered into the drawing. If no one is interested, they will be donated.

Above is the back view and below is the front view. I love how they ended up almost identical, it was completely by accident. I just started from the center of two different skeins, go figure they would start at the same place. I greatly enjoyed making these socks and will one day probably try to make one in my size.


You won't believe what I cast on for after I finished the Skewed socks . . . Tribute from the newest Knitty. I just had to know how the lace looked in real life. The yarn is from this post, it's a Silk/Merino blend. I doubled up the yarn and it is making the most wonderful feeling socks. However, as most patterns are . . . they are too small. I started the Large size and am getting gauge, but my feet are more like Xtra-Large. Oh well, these are sure to become a give away too.


So, I would finally be knitting myself some socks that fit me. I have restarted these Kauni socks again. This post shows the colors. I had to frog the previous socks, because I hadn't written any of my stuff down and I couldn't remember that far back. So we are starting over and keeping track.

In relation to the whole job front. . . evidently the girl who wrongly accused me, was let go. Other employees supposedly came forward and her lies were shown for what they really were. I am glad that things in the end came to light, although I still sorry she lost her job.

On the positive side, I take a test Wednesday that ends up hopefully helping me get a job. I already had one interview, so we shall see how tomorrow goes. I wouldn't be starting until May 17th, but it will be a good job if I can get it.

One last side note, a good guy I worked with at my previous job was beaten and mugged the previous night. Please pray for his healing and his attacker to come to justice.


  1. Wow, hopefully the guy makes a quick recovery. People are just horrible sometimes, I don't understand it. Good luck on your test!

  2. I wear a size 6.5, but MJ wears a ladies 5...

    Prayers for the good guy, but I must confess that I smiled upon learning that justice is alive and well for your female former co-worker. Good luck on that test.

  3. I would be interested in the socks for a friend of mine who has very small feet. They're really neat how they are diagonal.

    Good luck with the test!

  4. Great socks. Too bad my feet are huge. =)

    I hope your coworker is better soon!
