striped socks! November 6, 2007

Filed under: knitting — Ren @ 10:18 pm

my first project using magic loop is done and i’m pretty proud. there’s a little bit of a ladder where i switch needles, but it’s much less noticeable than with dpns and i think magic loop is a lot easier, too. thanks to rhoda for sort of suggesting it!




the pattern is fred and george, knit in dalegarn baby ull on size 1 circulars. these socks took forever to complete, but it never felt like a long time, probably because i could really see my progress with the stripes. it never ceases to amaze me how my tight knitting ends up giving me socks that fit pretty perfectly. i think i’m going to get gauge, but i rarely do and it works out to my benefit anyway. yay for narrow feet (except in the shoe buying department).

    Your socks are so cute! I bet they must feel so good on your feet…they looks soft and silky. The yarn has a nice sheen to it! You should be very proud of how much of an accomplished knitter you have become in such a short time :)

    happy knitting :)

    You asked about my pocketbook slippers….”how long do they take you to knit?” Well, they really are a quick knit. I would say for the most part that it takes me one evening to make one slipper- give or take a little. So pretty much after 2 nights I have a completed pair. Pretty good? I think if you give the pattern a try you’ll love them!

    happy knitting :)
