All the Socks Still

I've been working away on more socks, surprise! These ones were a quick knit that was sent to me from my #fibreshare partner Sophia .

I've been finding that I wear tall socks at work and out of the house but prefer shorties/shorter socks for hanging out in the house. This yarn fit perfectly because I had just over 50 grams which is short socks for me. The yarn is Manos del Uruguay Alegria, not sure which colorway but it's amazing!

I had no idea that this colorway was going to knit up the way these socks turned out. I have a couple more hanks of Alegria that I can't wait to knit up now and see how they turn out! I'm also so pleased with how the contrast cuff and heel look with this awesome rainbow.

Eye of partridge heel (from Hermione Everyday Socks) is so pretty, it doesn't matter if the yarn is variegated, solid, or stripes this heel looks amazing. I'll have a new post up soon with my Christmas sock progress!


  1. I love these socks. You are inspiring me to make a short pair! Thanks!

  2. What a terrific pair; I love how the yarn knitted up. Alegria is an awesome yarn; one year I treated myself to it for my 40th and knitted up Hitchhiker, a pattern I wanted so much for the longest time.

  3. These are just adorable! I love the contrast cuff and heel!
