I love cookiea designs and her socks fit me well. I am so glad that I joined her first sock club. The patterns are great and the yarns are super. The first patterned sock I made was the monkey sock pattern designed by her.
I finished the Boysenberry Yo socks. I used a size 1 needle with Solemate in Boyesenberry Jam color way. Solemate is a great yarn and I will definitely buy more of it. Can’t wait to wear them.
I started the next sock by Cookiea called Jubilee socks. I am using size 1 needles with Hazel Knits artisan sock yarn in the color Oh my darling. I am not a fan of orange, but I love this color. It’s more like a creamsicle color.
Next shipment from the sock club is due in early August and I can’t wait. I’m predicting Socktopia yarn. Let’s see what happens.
I am still working on the Sugared Violets shawl. This is an easy knit. I am using size 6 needles with Sanguine Gryphon’s Travelor in Gaudi House. I love the colors.
I am using the Signature circular’s and I really love them. The cable is 32 inches and I find that with the longer cable, it’s easier to use the longer size needle. So, I got 6 inch needles instead of 5 inch. Signature is suppose to be coming out with smaller size needles (size 1 and 2) and I can’t wait to get them for sock knitting. I am hoping that they will make two different size 1’s and 2’s to distinguish what needle you are working on when using circulars to knit socks.
