January Socks

February 15, 2010

I’ve been busily knitting over here, but haven’t been blogging a ton.  So I have tons of fun stuff to share.  I’m participating in the knitting olympics, on Team Soggy Stitches, (go soggies!), I’ve been sewing, and I’ve got several other projects ready to leap off the needles.

I finished my January SKA socks.

Here’s a close up of the stitch pattern.

I finished these mid January, and after cranking out a pair of socks I really wanted to cast on another pair.  I resisted for a little, thinking that I really wanted to do one pair for each month, not two! However, after seeing some of the lovely finished January socks, I couldn’t resist.  I had to cast on for another January pair.

January SKA socks #2

Pattern: Hermione’s Everyday Socks
Yarn: Flydesigns Lacewing Sock in Petrol
Needles: US size 0

It took a few tries to get the colors to work.  I started with size 1’s and tried several different stitch counts.  I finally moved down to 0’s and ended up with the stitch count that the pattern calls for, 64 sts.

The problem with resisting the pull of a CO is that I waited until January 29th!  Even though these are January socks, they need to be finished by the end of February.

I’m now at the heel of the second sock, and am hoping to get them off the needles in time to cast on for my February socks!  February is shaping up to be a crazy knitting month!

I also wanted to mention that Verdaia is now up and ready for download!  You can download it here:

    Very nice Jodie! I should try socks on circulars sometime. I have only done two pairs, and they were with DPN’s. Do you find it is a lot easier with the circulars?

    The lace shawl – Verdaia, is lovely.

      I love, love, love circs. I’m constantly dropping DPNs, and I personally love two circs, although I do occasionally use the magic loop method.
