Spouse Socks progress (4)

The socks are coming along nicely. I'm a little over halfway past the length that the Spouse has requested for the legs. They're still going a little bit slower than I am used to. I'm not sure why it feels that way. Maybe it is just the selfish knitter in me, being sad that I'm... Continue Reading →

Spouse Socks progress (3)

Now that my cardigan is finished it is time to get back to my other projects. These poor socks have been mostly forgotten, especially since I completely knit my shorties after starting this pair. Hopefully now I can work on these with less distractions. There's no actual deadline for them but I would like to... Continue Reading →

Strawberry Shorties!

Here's a sneaky project that came out of nowhere, even for me. I finally couldn't resist the urge to make a pair of socks to try out a shadow wrap heel. Then I combined that with some curiosity about whether I could get a complete pair of shorties out of two 20 g mini skeins.... Continue Reading →

Spouse Socks progress (2)

I feel like I've been spending all of my time knitting my cardigan, but I did still manage to make some progress on these socks. I'm enjoying them much more now that I'm past all the twisted rib of the cuff. This is such a nice and mostly mindless project for watching TV. It's a... Continue Reading →

Spouse Socks progress

The socks I'm working on for my spouse have grown a little bit. I finished the cuff and have moved on to the leg. I'm just doing a simple 6x2 rib to keep it slightly interesting and make the fit a bit more forgiving. He tried one on and gave me some feedback on how... Continue Reading →

Spouse Socks started

I couldn't stay away from socks for very long. This pair will be for my spouse. I'm trying to see if 64 stitches on 2.5 mm needles will be a good size for him. I'm also experimenting with a wool-free yarn. It seems to be working up just fine so far. Once I get into... Continue Reading →

Rainbow Connection Socks finished!!

They're done! This is by far the fastest I've ever completed a pair of socks. It's absolutely amazing to me that it only took a week. Plus, I completely love the way they turned out. They're a little bit tight due to the slip stitch pattern, but the final effect is so cool. The pattern... Continue Reading →

Rainbow Connection Socks progress

I've been zooming through this pair of rainbow socks. The heels and gussets are already done and I'm partway through the foot. If I can get them finished by tomorrow it will be the first time I've ever knit a pair of socks in one week. Even if I don't get them done that quickly,... Continue Reading →

Rainbow Connection Socks started!

I started these on Tuesday. They will be my combination Pride and Summer Sock Camp project for this month. I really like switching back and forth between vanilla socks and patterned socks. Vanilla socks are soothing and quick, but I get really bored of them by the time I'm finished. Patterned socks are fun and... Continue Reading →

Mystic Topaz Socks!!

Remember when I said I was trying really hard not to cast on socks before June? Yeah, I failed. I decided to challenge myself to see if I could finish these in less than two weeks, and I succeeded. These got finished up over the long weekend. I used some really decadent merino-cashmere-nylon yarn from... Continue Reading →

Acorns Socks finished!

They're done! I am so incredibly pleased with how these turned out, they really do remind me of acorns. The gradient yarn could not be more perfect for this pattern. I got nervous about running out as I got to the cuff, but I ended up winning at yarn chicken with about 2 g to... Continue Reading →

Acorns Socks progress (7)

This, friends, is what happens when I get excited about learning new things. I went from having just started the acorn cap pattern on one sock, to having almost completed both socks. The acorn cap pattern stitch is a bit easier now that I've had a lot of practice with it. The pintuck was painful,... Continue Reading →
