Socks and more socks

I finished up the Manos Del Uruguay socks, except for grafting up  the toes. That takes some time and concentration, and with watching the Olympics, especially the figure skating, (Canada's men got silver, yay Canada), when I don't want to take my eyes of the screen for more than a second for risk of missing something, I haven't taken the time to graft those toes. I did, however, start a new pair of socks, since I can do the basic knitting without looking at it, or at least not much. These new ones are a Berroco Sox brand. I love the way these are striping out. I have the heel flap done, and the heel turned, and am ready to pick up the stitches for the gusset. There might be more of these type socks, in different colours, in my future. For that matter, there will probably be more of the Monos del Uruguay yarn in my future too. I think I'm going to finish up these socks, and then restart my Pinery sweater.  I'm linking up to Judy's On the Needles.


  1. I really like the colors in your Berroco socks! I know what you mean about the kitchener stitch requiring concentration. No matter how often I do it, it's not automatic for me.

  2. Both of these are great colorscapes!! Have fun watching the Olympics! :)

  3. Both sets of socks are great. I'm very envious of all you quilters that know how to knit. Although I will refrain from learning how cuz I definitely don't need another stash. ;)

  4. always wish I'd learn to knit when I see posts like this.
    I'm LOVING the Olympics.
    I'm just amazed at what these athletes can do!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
