Blueberry Waffle Socks No. 2

Free Blueberry Waffle sock pattern on Ravelry.

Knitting socks is much more fun when their isn’t a looming deadline.

Now, you might think it strange that I am finishing Blueberry Waffle Socks No. 2 AFTER pairs No. 3 and No. 4. Yes, I can do sequential math (most of the time).

Things just got a wee bit out of order around here. Pair No. 2 was supposed to be a holiday gift, but the first sock came out too small. How handy that I have small feet! Now they are my gift…to me! Or, at least they will be when they are done.

The second sock is well under way, heel turned and gusset reduced. Now it’s just a stitching marathon until I get to the toe. I have been pulling the sock out now and again whenever I think I can sneak a row or two. The other day, Reed caught me and directed me to put away your knitting, mama. 

Busted.

Apparently Legos are a much higher priority. Drats.

Pair No. 2 is knit in Schoppel Wolle Zauberball Crazy in the Blue, Green, Aqua colorway. I tried SO HARD to get the self-patterning yarn on the second sock to match the first. I wound and Wound and WOUND the skein, desperately searching for the perfect place to restart.

Oh my heavens.

I ended up with tendonitis, a migraine, patently frustrated but with no actual match. I figure the two socks will be color coordinated albeit not identical, and that is good enough for me.

I tried my best. I can live with that. Better luck next time, eh.

It’s still fun to watch the colors unfold, one blending into the next. I plan to use the leftover yarn to knit a second pair of sock for Reed.

All in all, the free Blueberry Waffle sock pattern has been good to me, and I would recommend it to others happily. After knitting (nearly) four pairs, I am ready to cast on for a little some different…Maybe get a bit wild, dim the lights, pour the wine, and try something…toe up!

    That color is just delightful for a pair of blueberry waffle socks. It looks like blueberries hiding in a bush to me.

    Absolutely love this shade of Zauberball Crazy! I recognised it from the image thumbnail because I made myself a pair of socks in the same yarn. Have bookmarked the Blueberry Waffle Socks pattern.

    I am so glad we never had Legos. Even though I loved playing with them as a child, I can’t imagine I would have enjoyed stepping on them as a mom!

    Cute colors for those socks! I have a pair of mitts my mom made with Zauberball but I have never gotten to use it myself yet! It seems like a pain to try to find a way to make them match from her experience too, but I don’t really mind when they’re not identical! It gives them character, right?

    How do you like this yarn for socks? I have a ball that’s been sitting in my stash for a few years.

    I love that pattern, too, though I’ve only knit one pair so far. I am planning on more!

    Absolutely gorgeous yarn, the socks will be splendid.

    ooh, that yarn is so pretty (and coordinating totally counts!) how fortunate that they came out a bit small the first time and you got a lovely new pair of socks! If my daughter sees me knitting, then she wants to knit it, too- so I have to pass her my knitting while she stabs it in various places until the whole thing is balled up and skewered on the needles multiple times. It makes her happy.
