With a pause in projects, I decided to make myself a pair of socks. I used the the last pattern and simplified it by leaving off the twining cable pattern making it a simple rib. I also kept the modifications to the toe. I used Paton’s Kroy Socks FX yarn in the Copper Colors colorway. I like the variation of the color, it always looks different once its knit up.
Pattern: Modified Conwy Socks

Yarn: 2 skeins Patons Krowy Socks FX, Copper Colors

I decided to try my hand at making socks this fall and made my first pair with great success. After a long fall of knitting other items, I have finally gotten around to making a second pair with this beautiful orange Sockease yarn by Lion Brand. While it is a bit pricier per skein, there is more than enough to make a pair of long socks. This pair uses the Conwy pattern in Nancy Bush’s book Knitting on the Road. I did modify the toe shaping by decreasing only at the sides of the toe and then using a Kitchener stitch at the end to finish it off. I like the toe sitting flat without any stitches bunching in the middle.
