What's on the Needles?


I'm starting to use up leftover sock yarn, knitting two socks at a time. I have a skein of charcoal to use as toes and heels, and maybe some stripes.  And I've pulled the bits of "manly" colors to make a pair for DH Charlie.  So far a dark brown patterned yarn, but there is some beige and grey coming, and maybe some patterned blue and purple.  This is an experiment!

those will be some cute socks. I am always amazed that people can actually knit their own socks. I love socks. I am always wearing a very colorful pair during the winter months...kinda a signature for me. I would love to learn how to make some.
I enjoy visiting your blog.

Looks like you're using the toe up, two at a time sock method. Do you have the book by Melissa Morgan-Oakes? It has changed the way I knit socks. Except I still do one at a time.

Love your blog! I look for it every day.
Thanks, Louise
