Handmade Knitted Socks

Perfect Pair Yarn by Loops & Threads

I am in love with my first handmade knitted socks. And this yarn! It knocked my “socks” off!

After many years debating about the comfort of hand knit socks, I decide to give it a try. The problem I have with wool is not just the fact that itches but also animal farming. I am so thorn about it! It is so hard for me to find a synthetic that feels good to the touch.

So I finally decided it was time to try some yarns for my first sock. Michael’s had (as they always do!) an amazing coupon, so among other yarns, I bought this beautiful blue-ish color called River.

My First Handmade Knitted Socks!!

I can’t believe I finally got to make my own handmade knitted socks! Why did take me so long! I had this idea that it was one of those super difficult projects, and every time I read the instructions I quit before casting on the stitches.

I have been making all my clothes, except for my socks. But now I am proud to say that I am addicted to it! This yarn is Heaven! It is soft and smooth, it feels like cotton and the bamboo makes it breathable. Also the price is excellent.

Loops & Threads Perfect Pair is a super soft non-wool sock yarn.

I am very happy with my hand knitted socks. And the best part is that I can put it in the washer and dryer! After many washes they still look like new.

The pattern says one skein makes one pair, but in my experience, it makes almost two! I had a lot of leftover yarn.

This is a lot of leftover yarn!

The colors are gorgeous and they make a fun and pretty pattern. And the names! How fun! I really hope that Loops & Threads will come up with some solids.
