Knitting Friday

The knitting needles were in motion this week.
I'm working on some socks to give as gifts
and the fact that it is October 3rd threw me for a loop!

This pair is finished and set aside for Christmas.



I love the texture of this pattern,
but will not use the k1p3 for the ribbing again.
I like a tighter cuff.


This is a Saki Bamboo yarn in
"Crayon Box"... perfect for my Art Teacher friend!


This next pair is so much fun to knit!
There is a 4 row pattern and I have made a few mistakes,
but who can tell?


These colors aren't as bright as the picture shows.



This yarn is so soft and squishy,
but it does split easily.




Both of these socks are from this book:


I have not come close to mastering
2-at-a-time socks.
In fact, I can't even figure out how to cast on both pair
on the same needles!

I do like the patterns, though.

:)

Please visit Patchwork Times to see what others are
knitting today.

Happy Friday!

Great socks! Love the bright happy colors of the Crayon Box. I still have to look at the pictures when casting on a pair onto 2 circular needles. I need to get that book out and use it for my next pair. Lucky sock recipients!

ohh you always find the prettiest yarns! I read in a book a while ago about knitting cuff down 2 at a time on dpns. you need 2 sets of dpns then you start the cuff of each then put one inside the other and alternate knitting the inside sock and the outside sock one needle at a time. I thought that was ingenious.

Fun socks! Love those colors. If you want another fun pattern for self striping yarn, check out Jaywalker on Ravelry. I think you'd like it!

Love your socks! I'm not really a fan of knitting two at a time. I takes me longer. I'm faster on DPNs. I have the same book and it does have great patterns.

I've not even tried to knit two at a time.
I love how cheerful the socks are, so much so I'm tempted to hunt my sock needles and cast on.
