Crushed Velvet On The Needles


These are the socks I am currently working on. I’m almost ready to shape the toes on both of them.

I prefer knitting socks on 4 double pointed needles. I have learned I am more successful if I knit two at the same time alternating between them.


Because my gauge can vary and this way I get two very close to identical socks!

The yarn is the color Crushed Velvet from Emily Parson’s Sophie’s Toes Sock yarn.

I love the names she chooses – so creative and so spot on!

Maybe I could hire her to name my quilts?

Love that yarn! I knit socks on dpns too. I should try 2 at a time like you, sometimes I can't face that 2nd sock.
