I am continuing with my sock knitting marathon, determined to get them done before I pick up anything else. This is the last pair that I want to do for Christmas gifts and it should be done this week, as long as I don’t get side tracked. When I first started on this pair of socks the pattern in the yarn wasn’t very evident. It was only when I got down to the heal of the first sock that I could see that there was a definite pattern/striping effect. Finding the matching starting point for the second sock was a bit of a challenge and involved pulling quite a lot of yarn out to find the right spot. I hope I have enough left to finish or I’ll end up having to splice in the stuff I pulled out.
There isn’t a whole lot else happening in our little world right now. It’s a gorgeous day, so there may be a walk happening. I’ll link up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching.

I'm knitting socks for Christmas gifts too, but I'm not as fast as you. Your red pair are coming along wellReplyDelete
You have done well in matching the pattern of the yarn of the two socks. They are looking fabulous. Such a lovely Christmas gift.ReplyDelete
These are so pretty and will make a great Christmas present. Have a wonderful week .ReplyDelete
Very pretty Christmas socks, wonderful yarn.ReplyDelete
This is off-subject, but I was looking at your older posts of quilts and I wondered if you were still selling the pattern for Nine in the Pond, from August 2013.ReplyDelete
