You know I adore color work in my knitting so these socks jumped right off the page and into my Socks on Saturday post! The Prairie Cat Socks are just so stinking charming with their sweet little faces popping up into the previous color. I can’t stand it!

Now for colors! Fluffy Fingering merino yarn comes in 12 shades and ANY combo would look so cute. We could do Charcoal and Aquamarine to kind of mimic the ones shown but what if you did something wild like Berry and Citrus Pop? That would be crazy kitty cute!

Red Velvet and Saffron? Iris Blossom and Berry? There are SO many options!

Socks on Saturday: Calluna Socks

Each Socks on Saturday will highlight a sock pattern that you can use to knit yourself a pair of socks with Ewe Ewe Fluffy Fingering yarn. Today’s socks came as a submission from knitting designer Meaghan Schmaltz (check out her sock patterns!). She fell in love with the amazing stitches on the Calluna Socks and I totally agree. Look at these beauties!

The Calluna Socks designed by Becky Sorensen have incredible elongated cable stitches called caliper cables. I don’t think I’ve ever seen these before or if I have they’ve never been combined like this! I love the dramatic chevron they create.

Our yarns have a unique twist that really helps define amazing stitch patterns that you work so hard to create. I think a lighter, softer shade of Fluffy Fingering merino yarn would really make these socks shine.

These socks look so soft and cozy to tuck inside a pair of boots in the fall and winter. As handknitters we can show off an extra bit of our skill by letting our socks peek out of the top of our boots and these Tuku Honey socks seem like the perfect ones for the job!

These socks are so cool. I love the stitch pattern that and they way it goes in so many different directions! The Mosaic Marbles would knit up perfectly in Ewe Ewe Fluffy Fingering yarn.

This pattern uses a technique called mosaic knitting which means each round is worked with only one color and the changes colors happens by slipping stitches. This intricate design is very easy to knit!

There are tons of Mosaic Marbles examples on Ravelry

Try Fluffy Fingering yarn in colors Citrus Pop and Berry to make a really WOW pair!

Make a more everyday pair in Aquamarine and Vanilla Fluffy Fingering.

Go for a high contrast pair with Charcoal and Citrus Pop Fluffy Fingering yarn.

Make a lovely subtle pair with Forest Fern and Brushed Silver. So pretty!

Simple and sweet, the Extranilla Socks by The Unapologetic Knitter are perfect for TV knitting! Extranilla are the type of socks you can keep in your bag and work on them when you just want to knit without having to worry about a pattern. They’re great for a beginner or a more experienced knitter!

Meaghan designed My Favorite Vanilla Socks that use one color of yarn but Extranilla adds that extra pop of color at the cuff, heel and toe to really bring them to life. My kinda socks! I love a good pop of color.
