Last week, the Sock-a-Month KAL started it's third round. This time, I am fortunate enough to be one of the three hostesses, as well as a sock-alonger. Some great socks are already on, and in some cases OFF the needles. Why not join us, it's not too late!!
As it turns out, I've got three pairs of socks on the needles right now! The first pair is likely to take me three months to complete.That is the beginnings of my Rock the Stars sock. The yarn and pattern were the December Indie Swag, and they are gorgeous. The only problem is that the socks are knit on size 0 needles. SIZE ZERO! Have you ever tried to knit on these wisps of metal? The smallest needles I've ever knit on before had been size 2, so the zeros are a definite challenge. But you know what? I'm doing it! These may take me forever to complete, but the beautiful yarn and pattern are worth it.
Socks in progress number two are my Christmas Socks. The first is done, and the second is just past the toe.In case you've forgotten, the yarn is the new Step, with aloe and jojoba. It's very soft to knit with, and I really like the colorway Pea chose for me. I'm hoping I'll be able to get my stripes to match up on the second pair.
As for the third pair of socks, I'm afraid this is about all I can show you.These are a secret test knit of a great new pattern. I'm loving the Lorna's Laces that I chose for these socks. I'm using the Sport weight, so it's fast to knit and feels so smooth and silky. I'll be sure to show you more and tell you all about it once I can.
