I finished a sock! This is the Almondine Sock from Sock Knitting Masterclass – the pattern was quite easy to memorise and I (mostly) got it right. The yarn is Madelinetosh sock in Jade. It was lovely to work with – definitely recommend it. Now, I just need to get the second sock finished.

I finished my sample two at a time socks. It was easy. I am not sure how much harder a complicated stitch pattern would make things, but I am going to give it a go. I’m currently swatching this yarn. I did have to make a ball from a skein, but it wasn’t as difficult [...]
My tiny sample socks are progressing. I have just got the leg to finish off now – this two at a time thing seems OK. I haven’t knitted one of the socks with the other’s yarn – I am sure that must happen. I wasn’t very good at picking up the wraps and knitting them. [...]
I have started two toe up socks at the same time – just little sample ones. So far so good – it easier than I expected although I suspect a complicated pattern might require more thought. It should mean that both socks are exactly the same, no more trying to remember how many rounds the [...]
I finished my socks. The toes are a bit pointy and I could have made the leg a bit longer, but they’re finished and they’re not saggy! Next up a swatches for my craftsy class.
School went back today! Both girls are happy with their classes, so it should be a smooth start to the year. It was lovely to go grocery shopping on my own! As you can see from the image, the second sock is progressing. I am hoping to get the foot finished today, but time is [...]
I thought it was time I got on with the second sock! The knitting is quite handy because I can do it anywhere – at the pool, waiting for the girls to finish their craft sessions (today they’re making a Superhero at our local library), standing in yet another queue somewhere. I’m very keen to [...]
I finished one sock! I do like the magic loop method. Now to get the second sock finished!
Once again an astute observer would notice that the above is a plain sock and not an asymmetric sock - this pattern kicked my bottom! I kept getting in a muddle – cable needle at the front (oh no it should have been at the back!) you know how it goes. I really couldn’t focus and as [...]
Astute observers among you would notice that although my sock doesn’t seem to have progressed, I have changed the method of construction. It all went pear shaped – because I didn’t read the pattern properly. I decided that given that I needed to start again I should try the magic loop method (I found great instructions [...]
