Moxie Socks

These handspun stripey summer socks have been my car knitting project since April. My MIL has been in rehab/assisted living following a hip replacement and it is a 20 minute ride each way to visit her - these socks have been entirely knit on this commute (Dave driving - not me haha) over the past few months - all of a sudden they are done!

Moxie Socks

Started with FatCatKnits Moxie in Panda blend (merino, bamboo, nylon)

Moxie Panda Fiber

Split lengthwise in 4 strips - spun end to end and chain plied - 102 grams = 385 yards of beautiful fingering weight yarn.

Moxie Yarn

Cakes wound and ready to go with my granddoggy Jasmine.

Moxie and Jasmine

With chain ply you can actually see exactly what the combed top looked like - how it was painted and there is much more distinct striping than regular 3 ply - I realize I actually like the muted effect of regular 3 ply better than these delineated stripes.

Pattern: None - just plain socks
Size: 60 (leg) 64 (feet) stitches around for my size 7 wide feet
Yarn: 2.6 ounces (76 grams) Handspun FatCatKnits Panda Blend (Merino, Bamboo, Nylon) in Moxie colorway - love this blend for socks!
