New Favorites: Boyfriend socks

Boyfriend socks

I’ve mentioned before that I don’t like wearing socks, like, in the daytime — with shoes — and do it only under duress. But on a chilly evening, with leggings or pajama pants? Nothing seems more appealing than old-school sweat socks or L.L. Bean-style ragg wool socks. So from the minute Shannon Cook and Jane Richmond released the pics from their new joint collection, Journey, I’ve been dying to knit the Climb socks, pictured above. Perfect examples of their type.

  1. Honestly? Those Climb socks are the FIRST pair of socks that makes me think I’d like to knit a pair! And those Spate mitts are beautiful! I usually like plainer gauntlets, but those are really special.

  2. What is it about socks like this, with the grey and white and their sweet little red stripes? They’re just so… so… satisfying somehow! MUST DO. Thank you, Karen and thank you, Jane!

  3. Love these socks and see that individual patterns from Journey are now available for download! So excited to knit these! The entire collection is quite lovely…congrats to Shannon and Jane!
