I can knit sockS!

I can knit socks! My first pair is finished, please excuse the bad photos– they were taken at night in my dark little house.

You can see the stripes worked out ok after all.

Polar Opposites - Socks

Don’t you think that these will make the perfect SF Giants socks?  The yarn is from indie dyer, Amy Lee’s company Canon Hand Dyes (colour way: Double Double Toil and Trouble). 78 more words

This pattern has become my favorite for solid color yarn. It’s a free pattern by Erica Lueder. The pattern is written cuff down and too bad, so sad for me, I have only knit socks toe up. 80 more words

I Can Knit Sock!

I can knit sock, not socks as I’m yet to finish the pair.

Here is my first sock:

There was a hickup as after I finished the heel it didn’t fit, but I realised I did decreases in every row instead of every second row so I ripped it out (very scary, but I got the loops back on the needles after) and re-did it. 39 more words

Malibu Socks

So my smaller knitting needles arrived yesterday. An added bonus I forgot I ordered some more sock yarn, so it was a surprise to have that in my package :D It is a wool/cotton (and other things) blend which I’m hoping will be good for the not so freezing days (for anyone not from Brisbane, temperatures in the daytime below 19C (and for the Americans that’s about 66F) are considered ‘freezing’ cold.) 210 more words
