FO: Pebbled Sand socks

Forgive me friends, for I have sinned. It has been 24 days since I last posted a crocheted finished object.

Finished - Pebbled Sand socks

Pattern: Pebbled Sand by Janet Rehfeldt (from the book "Crocheted Socks!")

Yarn: Schachenmayr nomotta Regia Canyon Color, supplied by my friendly
German sock yarn pimp.

Finished - Pebbled Sand socks

Hook: 4 mm bamboo

Time: Started August 30 and finished September 22.

Notes: For the first time ever, I didn't have to adjust and adapt one of Janet's patterns. It was a freakin' miracle. Also, the Regia Canyon Color is probably not the most ideal yarn for this pattern - I don't think it shows the stitch pattern as well as a plainer yarn would. Plainer, say like Wollmeise in the Sonne colourway?

In progress - Pebbled Sand socks in Wollmeise

Yep, that's better. But I still love these Regia socks. Favourite socks yet, but also the least stretchy out of all of them, and it doesn't appear to be a problem.

You'll notice that I celebrated the cracking open of the Wollmeise with a new sunnyboy of my own. I figured I deserved another. (There will be sunnyboy bags in the shop tomorrow - I can guarantee penguins, matryoshkas, knitting script, polar bears, magenta bubbles. They've been quilted and are now awaiting zippers and seaming! But that can wait until tomorrow.)


  1. i freaking love the pebbled sand socks. Fabulous. And as for the wollmeise....well you know my feelings on that yarn! Love it!

    I am making your soup from the other day this very minute. :-)

  2. Those socks are awesome! Well done. Can't wait to see the Wollmeise ones. Lovely

  3. man o man I love those socks, that yarn and just all of it.

  4. I really (really) need to learn how to crochet. It's all your fault. That orange! Yummy.

  5. Oh, they are both so fantastic! Love the Regia ones and well, that Wollmeise, well. I am speechless!

  6. I love the crocheted socks, both pairs!! You commented that the pebbled sand are less stretchy, I assume compared to knitted socks, is that the case with all crocheted socks or just these ones? I have contemplated making socks but there is something about the length of time on small needles that puts me offwith the knitting, but crocheting.....hadn't occurred to me to try!!!

  7. Awesomely awesome!

    And I love your new blog header too!!!!

  8. Those are perfect, PERFECT for fall!
