Next Step Sock Knitalong - Day 1

It's funny how things work out. I was worried I wouldn't have time to knit today and that perhaps I'd been foolish to designate a busy Thursday as the first day of the Knitalong. So I got up early and cast on... and then discovered My Boy isn't well. As he is off school , the majority of our plans had to be cancelled and I've managed to make a start on the toes.

As I mentioned previously, I'm knitting 2 at a time toe-up on a single circular needle. I'm loving the yarn and am very pleased that my chosen pattern includes a stockinette foot and a slightly patterned leg which I think will suit it well. 
Day 1 - toes!

NEEDLES: An Addi Lace circular needle - size 2.5mm (100 cm long)
YARN: A Stash Addict Sock yarn (Fantasy collection)
PATTERN: Tuscany by Melissa Morgan-Oakes
IN NEED OF: some decent hand cream!

I'm delighted to have so many knitters joining in this time around - huge thanks to everyone who has been spreading the word. On the Ravelry group and Instagram there are participants from both sides of the Atlantic, Northern Europe and beyond, all taking the next step in sock-knitting at the same time.  It's not too late to take part - if you missed the original details, or need a reminder visit the Knitalong page for all the relevant info and links. This is a knitalong for anyone, no matter what your existing sock-knitting experience. It's all about taking the next (or first!) step and expanding your skills. 

You can follow many of the other knitalongers on Instagram and Twitter with the tag #NSSkal and on the  "Knitalong with Crafts from the Cwtch" Ravelry Group and also on the new Flickr group (I'm the only one to have posted there at the time of writing, please come and join me!). Bloggers may also like to link to their NSSkal posts here, if so please link back to this page so your readers can find the other posts too. Feel free to save and use either of these images on your blogposts if you would like to.
