Part of my Year of Projects list was to make socks, particularly using new techniques.
My first pair of socks were a worsted weight pair as I followed along with Marly Bird’s “My First Socks KAL”.
I learned quite a bit and they have made good “wear around the house instead of slippers” socks.
Next I decided to make toe up socks.
I completed this worsted weight pair…BUT, I didn’t bind off well and they were unwearable.
This is the only image I have…I deleted them from my phone.
The yarn was from KnitPicks and I did manage to unravel one sock and save a skein for another use.
Next up, a pair for Mary.
I followed Tin Can Knits Rye Pattern.
Then I decided I really didn’t like the purl section, so I stopped doing it (Mary wouldn’t care).
Unfortunately, by the time I finished sock #2, her feet had grown and they no longer fit (darn growth spurt).
So, using the same pattern for guidance, I cast on a pair for me using Schachenmayr Regia Perfect Design Line.
I carry these in my bag and work on them here and there-waiting rooms, Karate lessons, Speech Therapy, etc.
They are taking me a longgggg time, but thats ok!
At my rate, I’ll probably complete one pair a year (how do people make 12 pairs a year???).
Have a good week!
