Chocolate Sunday School Socks

This was a fun knit.


Sunday School Socks!

But I knit them out of brown instead of white/light colors like 66% of the people who knit these on The Place That Shall Not Be Named.


The details--

Pattern: Sunday School Socks by Kim Wagner; Creative Knitting, September 2009

Yarn: Collinette Jitterbug in some color I don't know because I didn't have the band.

Needles: US2

Notes: This was a quick easy knit. The only mod I did was that I did not knit the foot in reverse stockinette. I noticed that everyone else (at least from what I can tell from squinting at the pictures) knit theirs with the seam of the sock where you pick up the ankle to the lace showing.

I did a g-fab move where I started knitting the opposite direction when it was time to hit the part of the foot that would show. This created a hole, but it was easily fixable by picking up a stitch or two the next time I came 'round the ankle.


Not too excited about the Jitterbug. I had heard stories that Jitterbug is notoriously short in yarn. They weren't kidding.

I only have size 7 feet and these are pretty much anklets. If I was a size 8 I probably couldn't have pulled these socks off.


Maybe I'm just spoiled by cheaper sock yarn!

The jitterbug socks I made myself wear really well. I try not to put them in the dryer, but it happens on occasion. They got fuzzier, but didn't continue getting fuzzier. They're awfully nice. Hope you have the same experience.

Jitterbug has increased their yardage. So kudos to them for actually listening to the uproar and doing something about it. But that doesn't help if you have stashed Jitterbug. I used one of my stashed skeins to make socks for my tiny-footed SIL. Yours look awesome!

Yikes on the yarn amounts! I've heard that too, haven't knit any yet. So cool with your Mary Janes! :)

I have no idea what all the sock knitting terminology means, but the socks are awesome! I love ankle socks and Mary Jane shoes! I have a bunch of super-bright solid neon and neon tie-dyed ankles socks that I like to wear with my black and white Mary Janes shoes in the summer and black dress pants to work in the summer (yes, I'm a dork!).

Very cute, even in brown.

I haven't worn fold-over anklets since catholic school...haven't really worn white socks since then either...hmmmm, I think there is a connection there :).
