On the needles

I finished Mum’s socks using the “Muscadine” pattern from the book “sockupied” and she’s delighted with them

then went back to a pair I’d started for myself several weeks ago, finished the first one fairly quickly and the second in two days! Easier when you understand what you’re doing.

This is the “Caret + Chevron” sock pattern from “sockupied” and I learnt a different way to do both the heel and the toe which stretched the brain and trust instincts!

And I’ve just cast on for the “Simply Elegant Cable” socks from the same book.

  3. Wow, that’s quick work! They’re lovely socks.

    I was fortunate enough to have an expert beside when I started knitting socks – my Mum, who was of an age and era where, if you needed socks, you knitted them. She probably could have knitted them in her sleep. It takes me a lot longer.

  4. I know just what you mean about trusting the pattern! I’ve had a few problems with doing that sometimes myself!
