woodsmoke sock

Posted on Posted in patterns

with a texture that curls like deeply-carved wood down the heel and over the top of the foot, these cozy socks are lots of fun to knit. and deceptively easy—no cable needle necessary to create those amazing winding whorls.

shown here in fearless fibers tight twist superwash merino sock, in a not-yet-released-to-the-public sock club colorway of brown meets purple.
please see deb’s amazing selection of alternate colors here, including miracle and composure.

thank you, deb for the opportunity to work with your amazing new yarn—we all love it.
i’m grateful once again to vanessa, who test knit this project with her usual speed and care (and couldn’t stop talking about the yarn).
and to rachel for helping get the pattern to it’s final, finished state.

what a team.

and of course we wouldn’t be able to drool properly without david’s contribution

  1. Very pretty! I like that the cabley bits continue down the heel. And I *love* that colorway; thanks for introducing me to Deb’s yarns! I just bought some of her laceweight merino for your orchid lace mitts, which I’ll be casting on as soon as I finish the socks I’m working on.

  2. that swirly cable-y design just sucked me in. i can’t wait to start knitting them. these socks are in the running for car trip on christmas eve knitting. (a 600 mile trip. i could knit an entire sock in that distance!) thanks for the gift of another wonderful design.

  3. I was just saying I’m itching to cast on something totally for ME! ME! ME! since I’m done with all my Christmas knitting. And what do my wonderous eyes cast upon? A gorgeous sock pattern! Also love David’s sweater, can’t wait to see the finished project.

  4. WOW… i think i am in love. i am a sock virgin (but have done lots of lace and arans) and have been looking for the perfect pattern to be my first sock… and here it is.

    love it! thanks!

  5. They’re beautiful – it’s love! I called DH to see the pictures, and he said “I’d be really surprised if you DIDN’T get that pattern”. So, I did.

  6. I love so many of your sock patterns, and this is no exception – totally fab. AND…I think my stash has just the yarn for it. (Digging through yarn bins…looking…looking…)

  7. Okay, these are cooler than snot. Way cool. And now, if I can just stop being a waffle maker. . . . somebody stop me!!!!!!

  8. I’ve never knit a sock in my life, but I want to buy this pattern! Do you think you would ever use this pattern in a stole? I realize it is not exactly “lacy” but WHAT A NEAT STITCH PATTERN!

  9. Right after Christmas I’ll have to start these. They are wonderful! They’ll look marvelous with my new black clogs. If only I’d finished my Christmas knitting I could start them now.

  10. Anne, these socks are absolutely gorgeous. Every time I come to your blog, I’m amazed at what you’ve created. Really — amazed 🙂

  11. I agree with Tammy-I wish your patterns would just automatically be charged to my card and delivered when ready! Those socks are great-maybe after I do the sock club pattern I got today from woolgirl…

  12. oh my – the name for these is wonderful – looks exactly like the smoke curling up from a fire.
    Such a yummy color too.
    beautiful Anne.
