PATTERN: Sample Socks from Toe-Up 2-At-A-Time Socks
YARN: Patons Colourful Twist
One more item has been crossed off my Year of Projects list this week - the 'sample socks' turned out to be "something for My Boy". The yarn is pretty but not really suitable for socks - it just seemed sensible to use larger needles and thicker yarn to make them useable - they make good bed socks or welly warmers. It's been really cold this weekend so they turned out to be perfectly timed.
Making a small and simple sample before the Next Step Sock Knitalong was very worthwhile - it's the first time I've made socks this way and it's given me the confidence to tackle a more interesting pattern now the "2 at a time" element has been de-mystified. And so begins the process of deciding which pattern to use for the KAL which starts on Thursday - there are 16 patterns to choose from in this book and all look great. I already have sock yarn so the knitalong will also double up as a YoP stashbuster project - I love multi-tasking! There are some lovely 'YoPers' in the Knitalong Ravelry Group already, if anyone else fancies joining in it would be great to have you.
