Update on my socks
Hi, a quick update on the socks I've knitted so far. I have finished these blue ones which are the garter rib socks from Sensational Knitted Socks in Sheldridge Farm Soft Touch Heather in gunmetal, for size 12 feet. Thought I would never finish them. Also made these baby socks in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Child's Play. They were a joy to knit with a short row heel and short row toe on one circular. The pattern was the Better than Booties socks by Ann Budd, free from Knitting Daily. Have started another two pairs, Southwestern Socks free from Wendy Knits in Cider Moon Glacier in Victoria (purple). These are toe-up socks with a lace pattern and the yarn is "sport" weight, feels like a DK weight to me. Quick knitting though. I'm using two 2.75 mm circulars for these. The other socks I've started are the famous monkey socks in Fleece Artist Merino Sock in Marine. Photo when they are a bit more advanced.
