Skew Socks

Happy September!
I am settling in to the school year and anticipating the approaching autumn.  It is 92 degrees today and uncomfortably humid.  My grass is high enough to start drawing notice, but I am just recovering from my headcold.  My teenager brought the mower out as a first step toward mowing, but is now playing Xbox.  Sigh.
I finished my first pair of Skew socks, my new favorite sock pattern.  I am very pleased with them!
Skew Socks Knit With My Hand-Dyed Yarn
This pattern is free from  The designer says that although quite a bit of high school algebra and geometry went into the design, you only need to be able to count.  I would add that the ability to follow directions comes in handy as well as a memory that extends the length of time it takes to complete an entire row.  I have a tendency to forget what I am supposed to be doing by half way through a round.
Here's the back view:
This was yarn that I had named "Berries at Midnight"
Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!!


  1. You have such an interesting blog. I don't know how to knit, but I am so amazed at your skill! I'm vegetarian, but have not yet tried a raw diet.

    1. Thank you! My raw-eating isn't consistent, but I always feel great when I'm eating more raw/vegan. You'd think that would motivate me to be more consistent!
