Acorns Socks progress (5)

I've been making progress on these socks much more than on my cardigan. I've finished both heels completely and am working my way up the legs. There are still a few more rows to go before the pattern changes, and until then I'm going to keep doing these two-at-a-time. The pattern at the top of... Continue Reading →

Acorns Socks progress (4)

I made it up through the heel flap and am ready to start on the leg now. I think I may try to work on these a lot this weekend. The top of the leg and the cuff of these socks have some new-to-me techniques and I'm excited to try them. One thing I need... Continue Reading →

Acorns Socks progress (3)

I worked on my socks much more than expected this weekend. I made it through the gusset on both socks and the heel turn of one. This gusset construction was new to me. It looks very nice but I do wonder if I'll be able to feel those increases as I am wearing the socks.... Continue Reading →

Here's my latest progress on my socks. It's not a ton but it was enough to start transitioning into the next color of this gradient yarn. Oranges and yellows are not usually my thing but I think this gradient is going to be absolutely perfect for this pattern. I was hoping to be a bit... Continue Reading →

Acorns Socks progress

I've made some reasonable progress on my socks. I started out using my new Hiya Hiya needles but the cable on them was too long to feel good so I swapped back to my 40" Chiaogoos. I think I will probably swap to the long cable when I am doing heel flaps and gussets, because... Continue Reading →

Acorns Socks started!

I finished one pair of socks, which of course means I needed to cast on a new pair right away. This pattern choice is brought to you by the Nature's Cozy podcast. She showed off her beautiful Acorns socks in a recent show and it inspired me to make some too. The pattern seemed like... Continue Reading →

Lucky Socks finished!

Here's my third finished pair of socks for the year! I've loved the self-striping yarn and I absolutely love this colorway. These went much faster than my previous pair, probably because they were competing with sweater knitting for less time than my previous pair. I decided not to do contrasting toes. The striped toes look... Continue Reading →

Lucky Socks progress (9)

I've made it through the foot of my lucky socks. Now I need to decide if I am going to do a contrasting toe or continue with the self-striping yarn. I really love these colors so I'm inclined to just keep going. I certainly have plenty of yarn left. I love it so much that... Continue Reading →

Lucky Socks progress (8)

Here's some more progress on my socks. I've finished the gusset and the foot is coming along nicely. My goal is to get these done in time for me to cast on a new pair sometime next week. I'm starting a new job soon and have a week of downtime before I start. In my... Continue Reading →

Lucky Socks progress (7)

I worked on my socks a good bit over the weekend. Both heels are finished now, and I'm more than halfway through the gusset decreases. I actually split them onto two separate circulars for the first few rows of the gusset because that number of stitches feels a bit too crowded to me on a... Continue Reading →

Lucky Socks progress (6)

What a difference a couple days of mostly monogamous knitting can make. It feels really good to have such visible progress. The heel flap, heel turn, and gusset pick up for one sock are already done. Even after more than a dozen pairs of socks, turning a heel still feels a little bit like magic.... Continue Reading →

Lucky Socks progress (5)

I managed to just start the heel flap of one of my socks today. Normally I like to do both heel flaps at the same time. This time around I got lazy and didn't feel like pulling from both ends of the skein at once so I'm doing them in sequence. I went back and... Continue Reading →
