These are the Winter Rose socks from the Hand Made Sock Society – the toes are a bit pointy for my taste, so if the next pattern (Magnolia Socks) has the same shape I will alter it.

The second sock is coming along nicely – although clearly I have missed my March 31st deadline!
I weighed the finished sock and the remaining yarn and there was 4 g difference (in my favour), so I am going to play a bit of yarn chicken.
This is the current progress on my Winter Rose socks – so far all is going well, the pattern is easy to remember and they are knitting up quickly.
I am knitting the large size, but only cast on 68 stitches (instead of 72) and I have altered the pattern accordingly – the pattern is amazingly detailed.
I am not sure I will finish these by the end of the month, which means I will fall behind in my goal of a pair of socks a month.
Next month I am going to knit Louise Tilbrook’s Green Gable socks.
I finished my February socks. These have an after thought heel, which at first I didn’t like, but now that I have finished and tried them on I like it.
Next time I do an after thought heel – I will place a marker where I want the heel to start, so I can make each sock identical.
I also like the wedge toe, which I found here – I need to write myself some notes, so I remember it.
Next up Winter Rose socks – As I want to use my Addi Crasy Trio needles, I will probably alter the pattern to suit whatever gauge I get.
I have been working (slowly) on my Live Simply sampler and I have started work on my My Lady’s Quaker from here – it is big (for me) 160 stitches by 160 and so I shall be working on it for a long time.
I have continued on my sock and hope to have it finished by the end of the month – my aim is a pair of socks a month. There is a lot going on in the next month, so I might not get there, but then I am going to knit Winter Rose Socks – I have this yarn in mind – in colour 2170.
There is not enough time to stitch and knit all of the things… I suspect this is a nice problem to have.
