more socks!   12 comments

sws #9

Finished pair 9, pair ten is on the needles. Both at once. Let’s see if I can do this. I see the benefit of it, but it feels slow, and I miss my tiny little needle. But this is May, and the Knitting Sarah has a challenge for us, to do something different. And she has fantabulous prizes to encourage us to grow. Dang I hate that. 🙂 So. New method, new pattern. And solid colored yarn, although that part was planned a while ago, I just moved it up the queue a pair or two. I’ll make the rainbow socks next. Maybe. I just ordered SIX skeins of Tosh Sock yarn that should be here soon. Might upset my queue a bit. 🙂

  1. You normally knit fast? Or are you more of process person? One thing is for sure, you can never have too many socks. I miss knitting them. I have 2 pairs on the design boards for The Skipper in the sketch phase. Mood boards for 3 others of boudoir socks I want to design and for the life of me I can’t get back to those projects yet. I have 3 baby sweater designs that need to come together simultaneously for this company and I realized for the first time the other day that I am not an octopus. I can’t knit 4 projects at one time, I don’t have enough arms.

    • lol – I usually knit reasonably fast, and I knit a good amount each day, so things go fast. I never really knit a lot of socks before, but this KAL came at the right time (In a cold winter, to start) as I was thinking that I really liked my handmade socks and wanted more, and my store bought wool socks were getting ratty. So I jumped on this with a vengeance, and quickly memorized the simple pattern. Now I am bought into the KAL, and loving how nice and fast these socks knit up – almost as fast as hats, which I have not knit in a while. I have several of those planned for a craft show in November, but I also just ordered 6 more skeins of sock yarn…..

  2. Awesome how ya got nine pairs under your belt.

  3. I love how you’re motoring on socks! I knit a row a day at the moment!

    • thanks. I have spells of that as well, but the last few pairs have really flown. I am a bit bummed that what I am doing for the May challenge isn’t allowing me to use the little needle I got based on your info. That really does make the socks fly.

  4. I am fascinated by the process of making two socks at a time and just socks in general. I do beed to make a pair!

  5. very pretty in pink ^^
