Lots More Socks

Saturday, August 16, 2003

Ok, this is the end of the socks. At least for now. My fingers are itching to get back to afghans. These are just some house socks I made to use up the yarn from the last two pair. Off to finish up the last afghan and start the next one... I've got some great ideas...

It's still too hot for afghan knitting but I am hopping it will cool off in the next couple of weeks and I can get back to it. In the meantime, more socks. I just love this pattern yarn. You have no idea what it will look like until you start to knit and even then it's different depending on the number of stitches and size of needle. This particular pattern looks very different foot to leg. Fun. This is more Bernat Hot Sox - this color (which is actually more palatable in real life than in this photo) is called Hot Tamale.

More sox! These are done on 2's for the foot and 1's for the ribbing. I used Bernat Hot Sox - the color is called Hippi Hot. I used most of two skeins. I do love the color.

These socks were done on Regia - took two skeins. The main part done on size 2's. The ribbing at the top was done with size 1's.

Socks! I'm trying out a new pattern. This one is knit from the toe to the top rather than the reverse. This is particular helpful since I plan to just go until I run out of yarn. Then I'll bind off and be done.

Afghan?? That doesn't look like an afghan!!

You are a sharp bunch! It finally got too hot for afghan work last night so I switched to socks. At least for a bit until it cools off again which probably won't be too long (I love the Northwest most in the Summer). Until then. Socks. I like the two socks on two circular needles because I don't have to worry whether they are exactly the same size. Plus, when I did them one at a time, it always seemed hard to get excited about sock number 2. This way they get equal billing. There's a great tutorial on this on the Socknitter's website.

And yes this is some of that magic pattern yarn. It makes the pattern as you knit along and is such great fun to watch 'grow'.
