Philosopher’s House Socks

These may just be my favorite New Pathways socks.

Meet my Philosopher’s House Socks!

There’s nothing particularly special about this architecture. Well, other than the usual Cat Bordhi genius.

Colors are most true in this shot

They are of the Upstream architecture, the only architecture that has yielded a failed sock, so it was a point of contention that I needed to have a pair of finished Upstreams.

These were my final Summer of Socks pair. They are worsted weight and went very quickly, but I still didn’t manage to start, let alone finish, another pair in time for SOS, which ended on Labor Day.

I’m seeing these as very comfy house socks, and they are a pattern I will most likely knit again.

Pretty colorway! That reminds me, did you get into the Cat Bordhi class?

Those look so nice and squishy!

Two FOs in a row knit with Dream in Color yarn? Talk about eye candy! :)

neat- I can't believe they are worsted weight. They don't look it. How great they will be for fall and winter.

These are gorgeous! I'm going to have to bite the bullet and try out Cat's designs!

I love them. I finally bought the book and need a pattern for a pair of Christmas socks for a daughter. They look perfect. I guess I'll have to look it up and get started.
