Denim Picots

A project that begins and ends neatly really tickles my fancy...


I wear a lot of jeans, so these are a wardrobe necessity with their various blues...


I find self-striping yarn endlessly entertaining (why yes, I am easily amused!)

56 stitch stockinette socks with picot edge

(I use Claudia's picot edge directions found here)

women's size sm/med

yarn: Austermann Step, color #02

1 skein: 100g/420m

needles: size 2 dpn's



My newest sock. Is it wrong that I'm in love with the yarn? and the needles?


Thank you to everyone who purchased from my De-Stash Blog, I really appreciate it! Will let you know when I put more things over there. And for those who have asked questions and are awaiting replies...there wasn't any contact info. Please email me so that I can respond!

Thanks for visiting me today! Wishing you a Happy Tuesday!!!

saras said...

I not much of a knitter! I just know how to do a scarf! LOL But I don't get how the stripes get so perfect? And how do they match up exactly?!!

Shari said...

GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have GOT TO find someone around here who can finish my arm mitts for me!!!!!!
You do such beautiful work! Keep it up!!

Annie said...

Those look great. Love the picot edge. Warm socks are sure a necessity this winter around here!

Nicole said...

So cute Staci! I really need to try that picot edge. Love the color of those socks too.

Marjorie said...

Those are awesome socks. You make me wish I could knit!

Jill said...

Hi Staci,
OK, you just convinced me. I have got to learn how to knit myself. I miss my knitted socks. My mom was my knitted sock provided. I love handmade knitted socks and miss getting new ones. I would pick up yarn and she would knit up my socks. I miss her. Your socks are gorgeous!

KarenV said...

Gorgeous socks Staci! Seeing the picot edge first, I almost thought you'd stitched a pair of Dancing Ewe's Susie's Reading Mitts (they're on my to knit list). Wonderful colour you chose, just perfect with jeans :)

Angela said...

Another fantastic pair of socks! I love the yarn color of this one :)

Jo said...

Love the socks, and the new yarn too!

Do you mind sharing what needles you are in love with? I like wood and bamboo as they keep the yarn from sliding off, but as I knit continental, I like a good point...

Thanks
Jo

Siobhan said...

Love the socks--and the new socks, too! What scrumptious yarn you're using for both!

Marion said...

I love your knitting!!!!
And the new socks that you started...gorgeous!!
Take care
Marion

Melissa said...

Everytime I come here and see your stitching I first swoon then feel decrepit that I can't do that! I love the blue socks and LOVE that pink yarn. Of course you must be in love with it, it's got all those interesting colours mixed in too! Wonderful!

Deb said...

Staci - Those socks are so coo! I think the blue socks especially are great (I'm a jeans lover myself).

Julie said...

super new wool, they are going to be stunning. The picot edging looks really cool.

Harmien said...

Yep, I see the love. Both for the denim picot edging and the new colourful socks to be!!
You have a de-stash blog????? How did I miss that??

doris said...

The hat and mittens are absolutely fabulous, but the socks ... oh, my gosh, I love the socks ... the blue ones and the new ones ... oooooh.

Nancy said...

I love your blue socks, and I know they look beautiful with blue jeans! Your newest project is very pretty too - such wonderful colors!

Blu said...

Wow! Awesome socks! The edges are really neat.

Paula C. said...

I love your blue socks! And the colors of the new pair you started look very cheerful =)

Gabi said...

Beautiful socks. Love the colors of your new pair too.

Carol R said...

Great socks Staci. I would like to know too how the stripes line up on each sock! The picot edging is lovely.

Jackie said...

I've never knit a picot edge before but it looks so very cute! I'll have to try it soon. We need details on the yarn for the latest pair of socks. Love it!

Jennifer said...

oh I love these colours!!! The new yarn for the newest socks looks like spring. My Mom is a knitter, I need to learn badly!! Happy Valentines day !!

corinna said...

you are an absolute inspiration...
love the blue socks and their fun edging.... smiles and thanks for all you share

JOLENE said...

Perfectly striped socks and I LOVE that pretty pink/orange yarn, those socks will be gorgeous, too!

Lillie said...

Loved both yarn colors.

Annemarie said...

Is it wrong to love yarn/ needles/threads??? What a question to ask your fellow stitchy/knitty bloggers! You have every right and reason to love your yarn and all the fabulous projects you make with them.

Kim B said...

Those socks look stylish and comfy!

Kellie said...

Love, love, love all of your knitting projects! I would love to learn to knit someday. I looks so fun, relaxing, and practical. :)

Have a great weekend!

Carolyn said...

I just love all your beautiful knitting projects. I wish I could learn to knit, but then I'd have to have ANOTHER stash to enhance. Oh well! Beautiful work, as always!

Brigitte said...

Oh no, Staci, nothing wrong with it. The red-orange yarn is totally fantastic, love that colour. And the blue of the finished socks as well.

SimplyStitchingintheGarden said...

Love the socks, I am also knitting socks using the self stripping/designing yarn.

Have a great weekend. -- Roberta

Teri said...
