I knit blueberry waffle socks out of Trekking 78 and I loved every stitch! I lived for those subtle color changes so I know just what you mean.


Um, pardon my ignorance, but what are "closed" and "open" YO's? I started writing a post today about my angst in trying to find the right pattern for a yarn, too, but I will have to finish it another day.


Oh I am so glad you got to try Trekking. It is one of my favorite sock yarns. Those subtle color changes get me every time.


Yep, I love the Trekking too! And there's so many colors to choose from.

I like seeing the surf yarn knit up, even if you don't like the stitch pattern. It looks really nice.


The sock looks GREAT Maia!! I'm so glad you're enjoying the new yarn - that #28 is way dishy isn't it? The pattern really works with the colors too! Your heel looks pretty good to me, not too "pointy" at all, especially once it's on your foot! Can't wait to see the modeling shot!


Your Surf socks are beautiful...I am wildly jealous. Green is my favorite color and I have yet to find a colorway in green that I want to spin :(. The waffle socks are scrumptious. I love Trekking. I've made my man several socks using double stranded Trekking, good for big feet. I also just finished the first pair of Trekking for myself and I think they are wonderful!


Oh golly, I love, love, love those socks! You must teach me how to knit socks faster. I'm not knitting as fast as my obsession is growing.


Love those sock patterns. The yarn isn't half bad either;-> I like the wave pattern, especially with that yarn. Let them sit, though.(wonder how it looks on the foot?) Did you see the baby socks I knit? Closest thing I could get to writing my own pattern...an adaptation.

I love the riding the wave pattern! And the colors are just to dye for:)
