Frank Ochre Knit Socks

Well, if you’ve read my blog in the past few years or so, you might have seen a few knitting projects come though! I love following knitwear designers, I love yarn, and I love the beautiful things you can make. I however, am a very slow knitter (I don’t mind that one bit) and only knit when the mood strikes. So sometimes a project takes me a very long time – like these Frank Ochre knit socks!

Frank Ochre Knit Socks

I adore this color! It’s warm and happy and perfect for fall and cheerful for winter. I think I finished them in the summer sometime on a car trip, but stuffed them back in my knitting bag and forgot about them.

Frank Ochre Knit Socks

I’m So Basic Pattern is so good!

I used the I’m So Basic pattern by Summer Lee Knits. It was wonderful. Like honestly, the perfect sock to knit. If you recall, I knit my first pair of socks during the first summer of COVID, so it was pretty easy to keep knitting away on them. I did struggle with understanding the toe-up concept with that pair, but I managed and the socks ended up a little wonk, but hey, I made socks! So I was determined to get a pair of socks made that I would wear, and I jumped on the Summer Lee bandwagon when she released this very generous free I’m So Basic sock pattern that includes tons of helpful photos and tips and videos! yay!

So here they are in all their winter glory! Just in time before a huge snow storm here! Thanks for joining along on my blog, I appreciate each and every comment and bit of encouragement. I’m hoping to get my next sewing pattern out very soon. Keep an eye out for that, I’ll be sure to post about it here on my blog.

Have a great weekend! 🙂

    These are so perfect! And I really admire your ability to take pictures of socks – you make it look easy but I’ve been trying to photograph mine for a decade now and have never gotten it just right. Fabulous job!

    Oh, I love this yarn color!! I keep seeing Frank Ochre sock yarn all over the internet, from blogs to Insta to Ravelry. Frank O is having a moment!!
    Altho I don’t knit many socks (I’m a very slow knitter), I have approx 400 skeins of sock yarn in my stash. I might have to make that 401…

    Anna – it is my hearts desire to knit a pair of socks and I have never knit (knitted?) a thing! I don’t want to make a scarf or a washcloth, I want to make socks!! Those are lovely! If I made a pair of socks like that I would never take them off! Lol!!
