  • And one for theme since these are my own pattern.


    And for color… Pumpkins are about as “Fall” as it gets. Lol


    Great pumpkin (pun intended)! Yes, this is fall!

    LOL, love it!

    One sock finished (started Oct 3)–My 2nd pair of socks using up the Ugly Yarn! It’s a plain Toe-up with a short-row heel and K1P1 rib leg.


    I’ve finished two through the heels but I will be redoing the one with the striped cuff. That one was too tight. I also felt like it was too stiff and dense so I went up a half needle size on the second one.


    Finished Fall socks. I have found that I actually love the plain stripes on the sole so much that I immediately cast on again to do a plain old striped pair.


    These are great! Is it self striping yarn or did you do stripes with different balls of yarn?

    Entry for fall colors. I started to go for deeper colors like plum and darker orange etc but then I looked around me. I live in the woods and my fall is mostly browns, yellows and faded orange. And a lot of green, to be honest. We have a lot of evergreens plus our grass is still alive and well. But the oak leaves go yellow and then a kind of burnt orange. So I felt like these colors fit.


    @knitter131 Thank you. It’s three separate balls.

    And one more for theme since it’s my own design.

    Finished these socks last night.


    Fall Colors Entry


    Nice fall colors!

    Beautiful! Very fall-like.

    I finished another pair of socks. Very basic toe up vanilla kind of sock so I won’t claim original pattern. And somehow without the brown these colors say summer sherbet more than fall. Lol But anyway, it’s another finished pair!


    Love the reverse colors!

    Finished my 2nd pair of Ugly Boot Socks to use up the not so pretty yarn. They have no pattern (except I inserted a short-row heel instead of my usual gusset), and the colors have nothing to do with Fall, but hey, they are done…I’m thinking of going back to helical socks to use up more oddball stash next time.
