Socks for Pat

Even more satisfying than making lovely socks for my mum that she constantly wears, is hearing that her dear friend wanted a pair. I wanted some nice, bright yarn for Pat’s socks (she’s a very feisty 81-year-old) and found the right thing with Regia.

The pattern is a seed stitch rib with a short row heel and wedge toe, pretty much my standard with striping yarn. They’ll be in the mail this week, I hope she likes them!



  1. there is nothing more satisfying than having someone request your handknits.

    these socks are very lovely – great job!

  2. She will, they’re great!

  3. There is no doubt that she will LOVE & treasure these very pretty socks! Who wouldn’t in their right mind or left, for that matter? ;-)

  4. oooh they look so warm and cosy – I think she will love them!

  5. Nice and long, too.

  6. Beautiful. She is going to love them!

  7. I think these are absolutely perfect for a feisty 81 year old!
