After winning a great pattern called On Stranger Tides by Lara Smoot from the Peacefully Knitting blog (I highly recommend both), I have been inspired to explore socks! I’ve knit a few pairs in the past, but there is something especially inviting about the size of this type of project in these hot summer months. I also thought it would be the perfect opportunity to get a head start on some Christmas presents – who wouldn’t enjoy a beautiful pair of hand knit socks?
I’ve already knit the two patterns below and vouch for the beauty of the socks and the quality of the instructions:
On Strangers Tides by Lara Smoot – keep an eye out for another great pattern she has in the works too!

Here is a round up of a few more patterns I’ve found on Ravelry that I plan to give a try:
Treetop Socks by Heidi M. Scheppmann
Magic Mirror by Jeannie Cartmel
Mermaid by BarGie
Do you have a favorite sock pattern? Feel free to share it in the comments!
Oh I love them!! I’m so glad you enjoyed the On Stranger Tides. I’m still working in mine and now I will have to cast on Cadence 🙂
Thanks! Cadence is a great pattern, I plan on making another pair.
