FO: Fika

Things are a little slow on the knitting front, lately. I feel like I'm slogging along on the same projects without any progress, but in reality my projects are technically simple which makes them a little boring. But check out how pretty they turn out!

Twisted rib and stockinette never looked so good!

Simple and straightforward design. With a cheeky little twist at the toe.

Pattern: Fika by Maribeth White, from the Spring 2015 issue of Pom Pom Quarterly
Yarn: SweetGeorgia BFL Sock in Ginger (CC at toe is Stricken Smitten Smitten BFL Nylon Twist in Little Storm Cloud)
Needles: US #1 (2.25 mm) Hiya Hiya Sharp Fixed Circulars
Mods: I knit the toe to 24 stitches (twelve on each needle) before grafting them together rather than the 32 stitches called for in the pattern. These make an excellent commute and social knitting project. These socks are a gift for a friend and I hope she likes them as much as I do!


  1. I seem to adore the look of simple socks better than highly patterned. Knitting them is another matter entirely. :) These are so wonderful- love the cheeky toe accent!

  2. They look so perfect, great job!

  3. Those socks are gorgeous! I love that little hit of blue on the toe.

    1. Thank, Julie! That little bit of blue really makes all the difference with these socks, doesn't it?

  4. I agree-simple socks are classy. Love these and the color.
