Wool socks done!

The sheep were raised and sheered south of Stockton, Illinois by Suzy the Shepherdess. The yarn was spun at Blackberry Ridge Woolen Mill in Wisconsin. The pattern is called Stockton Socks.
The socks are knitted top down. I made these for Ray. They are soft and warm. I thought it was about time I made something for him!


  1. Great job on the socks! I love that you know where the wool came from and where it was spun. So neat. I have yet to finish a pair of them..... maybe that will be my take along project this summer while traveling.

  2. Love the socks ... and that you know exactly where the wool came from. I know nothing about knitting, so I'll ask what might be a dumb question: you mentioned that you knit these from the top down - anything special about doing it that way? ;-)
