Each ball of JaWoll sock yarn comes with a spool of reinforcement thread. I've never thought it necessary to reinforce the heels and toes of socks, but since it was included, I used it. It created a nice tight fabric that should wear well.

The next pair of summer socks is already on the needles. More on those later.

  1. Those socks look great! I love all of the basketweave variations, and I don't think that I've run across this one before. That's a really pretty color too!

  2. I have always loved the basketweave pattern – on anything! Socks, dishcloths, blankets, you name it. Yours are spectactular and the color is lovely, as well.

  9. The socks look great! I almost signed up for a lace sock class but I ended up signing up for a lace shawl class instead. I hate having to choose!

  10. Great job on the socks! It really made me envious that someone is actually finishing a pair! I might just have to hunker down and finish the legacy socks I have been working on FOREVER!!!!Thanks for the inspiration/motivation!
