Socks Socks Socks

Dear Summer Sock of 2020,

Thank you for helping me to quiet my heart and let my mind make a sock. I haven’t knitted a sock in a year or more. I did a little pattern at the beginning of the leg for variety. Thank you sock. I will show my blog pals the little patttern when I block both socks. Why of course, I am casting on your partner today.

I did want to show my friends, that I don’t kitchener the toes, but use a turned inside out sock 3 needle bind off. So they can see how nicely it turns out. In case, they, like me, just aren’t willing to learn Kitchener despite rhymes and the infinate patience of so many friends who have tried.

Stats: 64 stitches on 5 needles for cuff and body. Yarn: Araucania, Huasco.

Extra fine handpainted Peruvian wool. I used size one needles.

Todays camper activities are : cycling. On a shady trail on a very hot day.

  1. Bravo on getting back into knitting socks. I know how much joy they bring to you. I have to finish my cross stitch pin cushion and then get back to finishing my purple shawl. ((hugs)), Teresa 🙂

  4. What cute socks! I just use the old decrease until 8 and pull the yarn through trick. I am that lazy. I’ve never had a problem with the toes poking through though so that’s a plus.

  5. Since I don’t knit socks in the round, I’ve never had to memorize Kitchener. I do use three-needle bind-offs on anything I can, though.
