Comments Off on The World’s Premier Sock Model
Category: family and friends, knitting & crocheting



My brother and his family visited prior to me gifting these socks and we had a grand time. The Niece and I played with my dollhouse and enjoyed the hammock.

When you’re about to gift socks that are a little too small for you, reinforcements are needed. Allow me to introduce The Premier Sock Model. I expect there is quite a bit of sock modeling in her future so I’m thrilled that she’s game.


Yarn: Knit Picks Felici
Colorway: Beyond the Wall
Sock Recipe:
CO 64
k1tbl,p1 ribbing for cuff (1 inch)
left cross (1st over 1 st = 2 total), k1, p1 around for 1 round/row
k3,p1 ribbing for leg.
Spacious OMG Heel (verdict: never again)
k3,p1 for the top half of the foot.

I wasn’t surprised when I fell in love with the Beyond the Wall colorway. Grays and blues are my jam.

I’d knit socks with Knitpicks Felici before and don’t hate it. I go down to 2mm needles to get a fabric I’m happy with and the socks seem to hold up.

This is my usual 3×1 ribbed sock recipe with a trial run of the Spacious OMG Heel (which I disliked knitting so much that the second sock took me over a year to cast on).

I’d planned to knit these for me. Only, each time I was out with one particular friend, she would gaze at them longingly and comment on how beautiful they were. Eventually, I asked her what size her feet are. When she answered with a half size off from mine, I decided to make it work because she’s sockworthy as hell.

Exhibit A: When I told her I’m working on a book, her immediate response was, “OMG! Let me be the first buyer!!!”

Exhibit B: When I asked for a picture of her with her socks, she sent 2. I chose wisely.
