Inspired by the first ever Nerd Girl Yarns retreat and the special colorway dyed for the event, My Internet Friends are Real!, these socks are a companion (or alternative) the Wanderer Shawl. The random spiral cables represent the great distances so many traveled to come together in person for the first time after nearly a decade of cultivating an incredibly close online community.

  • YARN: Nerd Girl Yarns Bounce & Stomp (100g, 463yds), colorway My Internet Friends are Real!
  • BARRING THAT: Use 100g of fingering weight yarn, 300-450yds depending on how tall you want to make them.
  • NEEDLES: US 1 (2.25mm), or size to obtain gauge
  • SUGGESTED GAUGE: 8 st x 12 rows stockinette = 1”

Sizes available:
Small: 7” foot circumference, 56 st
Medium: 8” foot circumference, 64 st
Large: 9” foot circumference, 72 st

I’m a two-at-a-time-toe-up sock girl, but if you prefer top-down construction you most certainly could use the charts to achieve a similar effect!
