It looks like the completion of these has been well timed with the coldest weekend of the season upon us, here in the UK.
I used this quick knit dk.
This brings my total number of socks knitted in 2014 to 5 and a half.
5 and a half? Yes, the blue sock, over which I truely laboured, was just too snug to be comfortable and is waiting to be frogged. The criss-cross pattern made my usual number of cast on stitches less stretchy than usual. A lesson learnt.
My sock knitting of 2014 was wholly inspired by the sock KAL with KnittingWithSarah where she encouraged a little sock knitting every day. While she achieved a remarkable 26 pairs I am very happy with my own small total.
Sarah’s KAL truely snowballed. She was able to try out some amazing (mostly US) yarn from many many sponsors.
Do have a look at her KAL round up post. You can see one of those classic photos of all her lovely socks folded up in a drawer.
I’ve started, frogged, and restarted my fingerless gloves.
So I’m still on my dpns.
Love, Lucie xx
