That’s officially a pair of socks

So the sock grew. And grew. And pretty soon it was a real live fully grown sock! They're officially done (the toe has been grafted and the ends woven in and the socks blocked since this picture was taken), the pattern is officially done, all we need now is proper pattern photos. However, that's trickier than it usually is right now because of both the leg and the weather.  Taking sock photos requires more gymnastics than you might imagine, both on the part of the model and the photographer.  And while I might (just might...with the help of a nice [...]

Practically speedy

Greeny McGreensalot the Second is coming along quickly. It's almost like I really really really like them and want them done soon so I can wear them and take photos of them and get the pattern out or something. These will almost certainly be the next pattern out...the pattern's all written and tested, I just need pictures of the finished sock to call it good.  So hang in there, I'll have them out to you as soon as I can!   [pextestim pex_attr_set="looking-for-this-pattern" pex_attr_autoplay="false"][/pextestim]

Behold, an actual finished sock.  Ends woven in and everything! And, just as important, sock two is underway. Well underway as a matter of fact! It's amazing what a deadline will do...   [pextestim pex_attr_set="looking-for-this-pattern" pex_attr_autoplay="false"][/pextestim]

Told you they were cute!

Don't worry, the sock has not been abandoned! There's actually been an awful lot of knitting going on behind the scenes these days, I've got a fairly alarming amount of back log I should be showing off...   But for today, we're sticking with the socks. And just to recap, this is with Mineville Wool Project's merino cashmere nylon blend in the color Minegold (but they do short run yarns so I can't promise you can find this exact color any more).  And this will almost certainly be January's pattern.  If you want to hear when it's out (and get [...]

Oh look, they grew!

Clicking along quite nicely if I do say so myself! I'm actually starting to feel like both sides of this are nice, and you could carry the patterning on down the whole leg instead of folding down a cuff if you wanted. I like it when knitting comes with options! Though I always have a fondness for ribbing where the bigger parts are purl and the narrower parts are knit, so I suspect I'll wear them like this.   [pextestim pex_attr_set="looking-for-this-pattern" pex_attr_autoplay="false"][/pextestim]

Flip flop

So these are sort of fun...while you're knitting them, they look like this: And when you turn them inside out, they look like this: And the idea is that when you wear them, you first turn them inside out and then fold down the cuff, so you'll see this: But with more of that lovely purl 3, k1tbl ribbing (from picture 2) carrying down the whole foot.  It looks awesome, but it keeps you working on the knitside for the whole sock (which I prefer to working that much reverse stockinette...though maybe someone out there likes to purl more than [...]

Once more into the breach

So first there was a swatch... Then there was a slight change of plans (same company, same base, just went with the solid instead of the multi)... Then there was a cast on (yes, scandal, I cast on over two needles, yes I know the lecture, yes I'm going to keep doing it)... And in no time at all there's a bit of a sock... A familiar looking sock (yes, it's the same stitch from Constellate, it was too much fun not to use it again). Yarn is from Mineville Wool Project, their merino cashmere nylon base, in the color [...]
