Must Stash socks

23rd Pair of Socks

I cannot believe I’ve knit 23 pairs of socks!!  Where does the time go?  I still remember my first pair of socks – and just how long it took me to knit those!  Ha!  Now I can knit them in two weeks, if I have to.  In fact, I knit one of these, my 23rd pair, in a week, as part of KnittyNatty’s Sock Week.  So much fun!

Let me tell you more…

The Yarn

I bought this yarn quite some time ago and it’s from one of my favorite indie dyers, Must Stash Yarn.  Stacie is my favorite self-striping yarn dyer and she just keeps coming up with new colorways that just amaze me.  This one is called Apple Picking and it is even prettier knit up than I expected!

For this vanilla sock, I once again turned to my favorite pattern from Charlene Schurch.  Really, I go back again and again to her book.

Must Stash Socks

I was in no rush to complete these socks as they were for my MIL’s birthday in November.  But I love completing gift knitting ahead of schedule!  

For these socks, I cast on 72 stitches and started with a 2×2 rib for the cuff.  Once again, I did an Eye of Partridge heel, which is quickly becoming my favorite heel.

These were so much fun to knit and the stripes gave me so much joy!  I cannot say enough about Must Stash yarn!
