Another pair of socks finished! Yeah!!!!!
I love wearing my hand knit socks when the weather makes it necessary.
I fell in love with Emily Parson’s Sophie’s Toes sock yarn and went crazy buying it.
Then I also fell in love with Malibrigo sock yarn and stocked up on that.
I use size 0 bamboo needles after trying larger needles and different compositions.
I knit the first sock last spring and the second this past month.
At the rate I am going I will be lucky to finish using all of this by the time I am 100!
Usually I knit two at a time to keep tensions the same….a few rows on one, a few on the other.
I do not like to knit on the long circular needle which many people love.
I also have lots of partial balls of sock yarn left. Several people gave me suggestions to use it last winter.
I did knit over a dozen mini socks to put Christmas coins in but that hardly made a dent in the bag of leftovers.
Hopefully I’ll find a way to use more of it.
