My Regency Socks are ready to wear. The pattern was designed by Rachel Gibbs and published in Knit Now magazine, issue 17. The great thing about knitting socks is that they're a small project, so however complicated the pattern, they don't take all that long to knit. I like knitting cables in the round, with the right side always facing. I think the cables give a good fit to the socks. Here are a couple of selfies so you can see what I mean:

The socks are ready to take on a short trip we're going on. It will be Tuesday or Wednesday next week before I write again.


  1. Those socks have a fabulous design!!! :)

  2. Gorgeous ! Perfect knitting and fitting ! And they look Very warm & cosy - trademark of a cable pattern .

    Jane, would you recommend such a cable pattern for leggings ? I knit leggings for my MIL, but haven't used a cable pattern thinking that they may be too bulky or 'get in the way' (she wears them under her saree/maxi).

    Have a great trip :-)

    1. I think it would work, as long as you use sock wool, ie fine wool. Cable work can give a good fit and firmness.

  3. Wow you really make me want to knit socks may take a knitting break when my doily is done :) fantastic job as always!

  4. Nothing says comfort like a pair of hand knit socks. Safe Journey.

  5. Lovely pair of socks, great pattern

  6. Wow! They are gorgeous! Perfect fit :).

  7. A lovely pair of socks, they look very comfortable!
