Lifetime Pair #27

Another pair finished and ready to wear.

Basic Sock (Priscilla Gibson-Roberts Style)
Stitch Pattern: Garter Rib (Rnd 1: K2, p2. Rnd 2: K)
Needles: US 1 DPNs
Yarn: Happy Feet by Plymouth Yarn Co.
Color: 4

You can also find a pattern for socks like these in Sensational Knitted Socks. Garter rib stitch is simple and works well for socks for both guys and gals. This pair is for me, but the next pair will be for John.

I leave you with one picture from Friday evening's paddle in the kayak.

Sunset in the Marsh

For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
the LORD bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose walk is blameless.
~Psalm 84:11


  1. What a great scripture!

    The socks look fantastic. I love the color. I am so impressed that you have knitted 27 pairs. Wow!

    It looks like a great pattern for someone new to sock knitting.

  2. I thought that pattern was such a wondeful pattern. Really easy and the socks fit really well. #27? Wow, you have been busy.

  3. I like to knit and wear a basic, ribbed-cuffed sock. I can and have knit fancy lace socks, but I still prefer the ribbed-cuff.

    Congratulations on #27.

  4. Yeah! I love a finished pair of socks. I always feel a sense of accomplishment. I love the color very pretty! I love all the beach pictures you share!!

  5. Does that mean 27 pairs of! These are beautiful socks...and the pattern looks pretty easy (even for a sock novice, like me ;o) I like the cherry-red yarn. That sky and water photos is glorious...Happy Days ((HUGS))

  6. Lovely! Lovely socks! Lovely scripture!

  7. Inspiring, the socks and the scripture.

  8. Wow - I've never paid attention to this pattern before, but now it's definitely going to be in my queue thanks to your inspiration. They're lovely (and I'm simply mad about the color!)

  9. The socks are beautiful! Sometimes simple is good!

  10. Your wool socks must be as useful to you as my bathing suit is to me. I can use it for only a short time each year! The socks look a lot better, anyway! :-)

  11. Wow! 27 pairs! Your family can never want for socks! I have a couple of sock patterns, but I'm just too scaredy-cat to venture into socks..yet. Love the red color yarn you used.

    Thank you for sharing your early morning outing picture and the lovely Scripture!

  12. those socks look super comfy and what a nice, rich color too!

  13. Perfect piece of scripture. Very uplifting. I've left you an award.

  14. sweet rosy socks.
    incredible sky photo!!
