Sock news

Still knitting. This is my second pair.

Socks - 2nd pair

Socks – 2nd pair

I love the stripes and even remembered to note where in the yarn I had started my first pair, so they match!

KnittingSarah, the blogger behind the sock KAL I was so inspired by, is on her fifth pair!

This is a lovely bamboo based yarn. I shall so enjoy wearing these. I’m now going to invest in some sock blockers. I’ve seen some reasonably priced ones on the Minerva Crafts site.

I’ve also been busy working on my next Minerva Crafts blog make. February is such a short month this next deadline has come around so quickly!

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  1. I’m just about to cast on for my 2nd pair which will be stripy. I’m a bit in shock because, this time, I’m doing 4ply ones instead of aran weight and the needles feel so teeny. I did start unraveling my wool to see if I could find a pattern but it went on for so long I gave up and decided I don’t really care if they match or not. If anybody gets so close to my feet they can see a difference I will apologize.
    Those sock blockers look good – let me know if you think they make a big difference to the finishing.
