It’s good to be back….back to knitting socks. It’s been awhile since I was working and then working on other projects. Socks were on the back burner. But, I finally picked up a sock I had started back in October. I am working on the Embossed Leaves Sock by Mona Schmidt. I am using a size 1.5 needle with the Sanguine Gryphon Skinny Bugga in Leaf Insect. I hope to be turning the heel by the end of the week.
I want to start on a Christmas sock. A plain basic sock pattern using either String Theory Continuum sock yarn in Kinetic Energy. I got this yarn in a kit from Simply Socks. It was the Fa La La sock kit. We got a reversal project bag, bottle cap magnets and gift cards with the kit. I really like the yarn too.
The other sock yarn I am thinking of using is the yarn I got at the Knitter’s Edge, my favorite local yarn store. It’s from Frolicking Feet and the color is Christmas Cactus. I think I will knit my Christmas sock out of this yarn.
I started on the second ball of Marble Chunky yarn for the prayer shawl for my only knitted Christmas gift. I really like this yarn. It’s acrylic, soft and washable. I just had to buy more colors, so I got MC14 (red) and MC6 (blue/brown). I think there is another color that I want to get yet. I like this so much that I am getting rid of the Lion Brand Homespun yarn I bought awhile back. I will donate it to a prayer shawl group.
Are you knitting any Christmas gifts?
