As mentioned in the previous post - I finished two out of the four pairs of socks that were in different stages of knitting.
The first pair - are "Plain Vanilla Socks" - originally I used size 2.5 circular needles so that I could try making them on one circular needles and see how I liked them and how quick they were compared to dpn's (double pointed needles) which happen to be my favorite. I don't know what it is but I love dpn's.
As I finished the socks on the circular - my gauge was off - sock was huge - casted on 64 stitches and knitting in plain stockinette stitch - created a wide - fabric
It took me a year but I finally ripped the whole thing out as I really love the yarn. I picked up my 2.25 dpn and casted on 64 stitches, ended up decreases down the foot to 60 stitches which was a much better fit for me. I tend to think I have fat feet - maybe I really do not. I do have a size 8 foot though - but I like a snug sock.
So without further ado:
Plain Vanilla Socks - using Regia - Kaffe Fassett - design line
I have since blocked these and they are so cushy - really love this yarn.
Next up are the socks I made with yarn I won in a give away - it was hand dyed and 100% wool - not washable and no nylon but I wanted to make the infamous "Monkey" socks - this journey started like 2 or more years ago - but I picked them up and finished them
I guess I will have to make more Monkeys.....
have a sweet , wonderful weekend and enjoy the time with your family and friends. Time is so precious!
Enjoy every moment.
