FO: Commuter Vanilla Socks

I finished my vanilla socks! I knit these socks pretty much solely during my commutes to and from work and they took just under a month to knit. I'll be honest, I don't always knit on my way home because sometimes I'm just too tired (or the bus is incredibly full).

The yarn blocked just beautifully and I'm sure I'll be purchasing more Desert Vista Dyeworks in the future. 

Pattern: 64 Stitch Vanilla Socks with the OMG heel by Megan Williams
Yarn: Desert Vista Dyeworks in Zombody It's Cold Outside 
Needles: US #1 (2.25 mm) Hiya Hiya Fixed Circulars

I have a loose goal of knitting all of my self-striping sock yarns by the end of this year; this is a great start.


  1. Yay on a terrific pair of socks!

  2. Lovely socks, almost makes me wish I had some commuting time I could use for sock knitting! :) Maybe I should try knitting on my bike?

  3. I've never heard of Desert Vista...I may have to try some
