My stepmom asked me earlier this fall if I would knit her some socks. I told her I would, but she wanted to pick out the yarn. A couple of weeks later, I got a box of yarn in the mail – three different kinds! She told me to chose the yarn for her socks, and keep the rest. I chose Zitron Trekking Maxima in colorway 906, which was a twist of blues, gray, yellow, red and purple. It has nice long color changes. The pattern I used was a free pattern called Globe Trotter Socks which can be also downloaded as a PDF from Ravelry.
This was a great pattern for this yarn. She asked for plain socks but I didn’t want to knit the whole thing in stockinette. This is a seed stitch rib which was just enough to keep things interesting.
There is truly nothing warmer than a pair of hand-knit wool socks for cold feet in the winter!
