Socks. Hasn’t gotten old for me yet – you’ll just have to put up with my sock ramblings for a while longer :).

 

I finished my 4th pair of socks for SOS

 

 

These socks are the last installment in Knitting Central’s Sock Club.

 

Pattern: Catch a Wave by Pam Grushkin
Yarn: Alchemy’s Temple
Needles: Size 3 & 4 Addi’s
began: July 27
finished: July 30

 

Such a quick knit – sport weight socks are the best! I love this pattern – it’s easy to memorize and shows off this gorgeous yarn – Alchemy’s Temple – it’s a new superwash – so soft and yummy. The pattern features a picot edge with ribbing inside and a short row heel. I will definitely make these socks again.

 

 

The actual color of the yarn is somewhere in between these close up photos and the one above. I love how the color spirals and almost stripes around the sock.

 

 

In other sock news, the green Spring Thaw socks are in time out – even thought I got gauge, the sock is huge. I think I’m going to frog it and use the yarn for another pattern. The Big Basin Socks in the Sockina have been frogged. Again, the sock was way to big. Teaches me to short cut Cat Bordhi’s new techniques. Her book is amazing but you have to flip back and forth all over the book to knit a sock. When I found the Big Basin Sock pattern, all the numbers were in one place, all nice and neat, all figured out for you. Problem is, the sock is way too big for me. Next time, I’ll just do the math and figure everything out for myself.

 

I’m also working on a new sock design – should be published by the weekend. Here’s a little teaser:

 

 

Happy Sock Knitting!

    I love how the socks came out. Aubergine is such a great color, the pattern stitch came out really well.

    You’re new design looks interesting!
