John's Birthday Socks

This year for John, my brother-in-law, I knit him, my sister, and my niece matching socks! I took about a million pictures as I was super proud of these, but I won't drowned you all in them and will just show a few.

Here is the picture my sister sent me after they received the socks!

I love to see the size difference between the pictures, from left to right, Kid's 11, Women's 6, and Men's 13.

I did all the math to make sure the socks matched exactly! I love how they turned out, but here is a good reason not to do this again:

This is just one pair of socks for ends to weave in, multiply this times three! It was craziness!

Eleanor would like me to do the same next year, but she'd like her doll to match them also.  Which I will do, but if they are stripey, it'll be self-striping!  :)


  1. I was wondering how you got those stripes to be so even! I don't envy you the ends. Maybe a semi-solid would be better for next year? =)
