More on socks

Hi there, I wanted to show you something.

www.knittinginfrance.Com Do you recognise these???? YES! These are my FINISHED 2 in 1 socks!!! Yeah, I just finished them and they are perfect! And even though I used slightly different coloured yarns to help me distinguish between Y1 and Y2, they actually do not look very different one from the other. And once I finally found my “technique” to knit this way faster, they just flew off the needles. And I have to say that I truly find this method of sock knitting magical. To knit 2 socks on the same dpns and when you separate them in the end, wow that just blew my mind. So even though I said, sometime during the process, that I would probably not be knitting more socks this way, I have changed my mind. I will most definitely be doing more of this! I hope you will give this a try yourself if you enjoy knitting socks. I feel it takes sock knitting to a whole new level and its such fun to learn to master a new method. I really recommend you take the plunge. Here are some more pictures of the finished socks

I also have another pair to show you. If you read my last post you will know that my mother just had a big heart attack and is very sick. I decided that we would prepare an “I love you” package for her. My children are going to draw her pictures and I’m going to give her a pair of hand knitted socks and some sweets – she has a sweet tooth and if she is allowed to eat chocolate and so I’m going to buy something very nice and include that with the package. I’m also going to knit her a stole or large scarf to put around her shoulders for when she is sitting up in bed for example. I haven’t decided on the model/pattern for that but I know I’m going to use one of my handspun yarns for that project.

I thought I had actually finished this pair of socks so I went to photograph them to show you and that’s when I discovered that having been so distraught lately I had messed up. I only did the patterning on 1 side of the leg instead of on both sides! so I had to rip bag the entire leg of the second sock and so thats what I’m trying to finish as quickly as I can now so I can send that to my mom.
