Tesserae Sock

just one word for these i think—tile-icious
(that is, if you don’t count, sleek, sophisticated, and understated.)

they’re perfect for my favorite house artist. they would, of course, work with a suit as well.

    I have to say I think that these are my favorite socks yet… I really like how classic they look.

  2. michelle says:

    I have to say that I totally agree with Kim :) Absolutely lovely!

  3. Punkin says:

    I like this sock pattern very much. It is one of those patterns that I find attractive from a distance, and then it draws me in and I like it even more as I look at the details.

  4. Allison says:

    i love these. so much.

    When you posted that sock earlier — I searched for the pattern thinking I missed it. Whew. Okay — time to make another purchase. ;) I just have to graft the toe on the giant husband sock and then the first one is DONE! (Now I just have to get the courage up to make the 2nd one.)

    Mmmm, I can’t decide if I like the stretched or scrunched version better. Wonderful!

  7. Josiane says:

    That’s a very elegant sock!

  8. Heather says:

    Oh, that’s just gorgeous. The yarn is the “Burgundy Bean” color from Woolen Rabbit, right? I can’t find that on her site…help?

    I’m so far behind on blogs.. sorry, my friend. The flu took me out of action for about 4 days now. (groan)
    Tesserae is outstanding… stunning. It would be such a comfortable sock :-)

    Very handsome! For a man or a woman, methinks.

  11. Kyrie says:

    yeah baby! Awesome! Off to shop!

  12. Wendie says:

    very handsome sock!

  13. Kim says:

    I love them – perhaps my husband would even wear them (with fingers crossed)

  14. karen says:

    These socks are fantastic! I hope you had a great time last night with the signing– I would have been there if I could but we had soccer last night and I couldn’t get away quick enough.

  15. Debbie says:

    Very nice, and yes, the photos do compliment the pattern! Love them. The yarn is just perfect for the sock.

  16. Beth S. says:

    These are so much nicer than ordinary ribbing, I may never do a plain ribbed sock again! ;-)

  17. marjorie says:

    Everything about those socks is fabulous–the yarn, the pattern, and the color. I had been thinking that only cables would pull in tightly enough to keep socks from sagging on my skinny ankles, but you’ve proved me wrong. I’ll have to rethink knit-purl patterns.

  18. Tan says:

    WooWoo! I already downloaded mine!

  19. knitnana says:

    Yup these go on my list! Just lovely!!
    (((hugs)))

  20. Pepper says:

    VERY nice. The colour and the pattern are fab. Yum.

  21. Diane says:

    I’ve been waiting for just the right pattern for a skein of Kim’s red flannel sock yarn. I think this might be it.

  22. Nan says:

    I love these socks. Even though I am not a frequent socks knitter, I would knit this up in a heart beat. Maybe I can make several of them for presents this year, hee, hee.

  23. Jennieknits says:

    Thank you! May I ask — do you have any suggestions for how to achieve you perfect picked-up stitches at the heel? I always end up with a rather sloppy line.

  24. Vanessa says:

    Glad your electricity stayed on so you could post this pattern. Mine was off for 18 hours – and I could have used a pair of these in my 54 degree house! Maybe I’ll get them done for the next time.

  25. Anne says:

    Pretty much whatever you knit next is my favorite. Right now, these are a close second. :)

  26. Emily says:

    I love that sock! Gorgeous.

  27. annmarie says:

    I’ve been poring over my sock pattern binders trying to choose just the right sock to knit for my husband and I think I just found it! Off to download the pattern… ;)
