Hot off the needles

Hot off my needles; my latest pair of socks.

A fairly utilitarian pair.

But required for those occasions when my others are just not appropriate.

You can see that I’ve not strayed far from the basic pattern. No fancy stitches here!
But I find my socks as useful journey companions without the need to carry instructions and also great for those times when only mindless knitting will do.
I’ve come to love my Addi short circular needles; switching back to the double pointed needles for the heel.Knitting with a short circular needle
My fit is improving, sock on sock, all learnt from my particular sock bible.

Having knitted them over the last 7 months, I’ve not yet worn any of them. But I’m sure a change in the weather is just around the corner.
Have a lovely weekend. Mine will mostly be spent cutting back and pulling things out of the garden.
Love, Lucie xx

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 love the purple ones! I am not very good at knitting but I always find myself getting tempted when I see the amazing things people make!

  4. Socks are SO on my list of skills to acquire. I have several pairs that have been made for me and I love them. 2015 may have to be The Year I Learn To Knit Socks!

  5. All of you socks are lovely. I’ve only knitted two pairs of socks so far and they are waiting to emerge from the drawer for the winter. They feel so much nicer than bought socks 🙂

  6. Once you start wearing handknit socks you won’t want to wear anything else! The grey/blue ribbed ones are very classy.
