Saturday in the Park Socks

red-saturday-socksI designed this sock pattern, which I call Saturday in the Park Socks, several years ago. When a friend gave me the fantastic gift of a skein of WollMeise “Pure” yarn in the color Vamp, I decided it was time to make a new pair.

I haven’t offered this pattern for sale (yet), and it’s a good thing I made this new pair following my previous directions! They were accurate but not very well written, so I spent some time updating the pattern during the time I was making the socks.

WollMeise Pure is 100 percent merino wool, fingering weight, machine washable, and best of all, one skein is an incredible 525 yards. More than enough for a pair of socks for almost anybody, with plenty left over — at least in this case.

It also has fantastic stitch definition, making it the perfect yarn for a pair of cable socks.

Wait, I’m updating my “best of all” — the comfort of the finished project is truly the best part. Downright luxurious.

I don’t want to take them off!
