On The Needles - Oct 19, 2012
As usual, I'm knitting them two at a time, from the toe up. My friend and I had a discussion about this and even though I agree that making one sock at a time seems to go faster, I still prefer to have a pair of socks ready to wear as soon as I bind off at the cuff and weave in the yarn tails.
This is a simple short-row toe and heel sock with a k5, p2 ribbing on the instep that will continue up the leg. I wanted to do a little design but keep it simple enough that I can still watch t.v. while knitting. Some of the patterns I would like to try would require more concentration than I'm willing to give right now. This way I can feel productive while viewing some of my favorite shows and movies.
In case you were wondering, I set aside the skyp socks until after the holidays. Those will be for me and with Christmas coming soon I still have a few gifts I want to make.
Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to visit Judy's blog, Patchwork Times, and check out the links to the projects others are doing.
