1.5 Socks

February 19, 2007 at 9:55 pm | Posted in knitting, socks | 2 Comments

From the Booga Bag I moved onto socks. I made one toe-up sock (that’s one, not one pair) from another free pattern I found online with lots of assistance from my cousin Karen.  I just LOVE knitting socks and am currently working on a pair of Twisted Knee Socks modified to ankle socks for Florida.

They are made from Cascade Fixation on size 4 DPN’s and I can’t wait to wear them. They came from this book

I’m really not very well versed in the different types of yarn yet nor do I have what I would call a large stash….yet.  What I DO have is lots of random balls of worsted weight yarn leftover from my crochet days.   This book is perfect for knitting from your stash.  It has a huge selection and the patterns are very easy to follow (this from someone who’s only knitted from a pattern about 4 times total).
