Yes, I have finished 90 pairs of socks. When I decided to knit socks, I did struggle a little at the beginning. I was told that to feel comfortable, you had to knit at least three pairs of socks. That was the best advice. After I finished my third pair, I felt as if I got a handle on the construction of a sock. I had problems with holes on the sides and was determined to overcome that and I did. Socks are great fun to knit because they are so portable and there is such a variety of sock yarns out there that make it fun. If it isn’t the yarn, it’s the pattern of the sock. Fortunately, I have not had second sock syndrome. Once I finish the first sock, I want to get the other sock complete. My favorite way to knit them is one sock on two circular needles. When I don’t use a patterned sock, I use a basic sock pattern that I have adapted to my desire. I think I will post that pattern in a near future blog update.
I finished the Dizzy sock pattern by CookieA. I used Alisha Goes Around fingering yarn with a size 1 needle in the Genevieve color. It’s a wonderful yarn and I would love to have more.
I also finished the Socks on a Plane pattern by LaLa. I used Lollipop yarn in the color It’s Five O’Clock somewhere with a size 1 needle. This was a toe up pattern, but I knit it top down. I love how the cables look on the striped yarn.
So, I started on pair 91. This is a basic sock pattern using a size 1 needle with Desert Vista Dyeworks Viso yarn in the color Dia de los Muertos.
I love striped sock yarn, so I landed out getting another skein of Lollipop yarn in the color Googly Moggly.
I also got my Kirby Wirby order. This is in her sparkle base in the colors Wild Child Fairy and Skating rink 1987 with strobe lights. I can’t wait to use this yarn. It is new to me but very popular.
I also got my order from Dancing Dog Dyeworks. This is in her Waltz Worsted weight yarn in the colors Emma with a solid purple and Love my Gnomes with a solid orange. This is for monsters!
