All socks, all the time. Almost.

13 Apr

Knitting monogamy has been completely tossed aside.  As we all knew it would be.  At the moment I'm deeply into socks with twisted and traveling stitches.  So tiny, so delicate. 

Window Pane socks in Dream in Color Smooshy, colorway Pansy Go Lightly (could there be a better name?)

Aragorn in Cascade Heritage which may be my new favorite sock yarn.



Ellington in Wollmeise 80/20 Twin, colorway Ballerina.  It's the first time I've knit with WM and I liked it. 


I seem to have a lot of new sock yarn and sock patterns so there are a lot of single socks hanging around waiting for mates.  So not only have I thrown monogamy overboard, I'm knitting socks willy nilly without finishing pairs.  As DH always says, "If you're going to step over the line, step all the way over the line."

I'm also working on a Tulip sweater for a lovely little toddler who has declared the last sweater I made for her as her favorite.  Smart girl, that one.  I'm using Knit Picks Cotlin.  I'm usually disappointed with their yarn in spite of my deep and abiding love for their needles, but this yarn has potential.  We'll see how it looks after blocking.

I'm off to cast on another sock!

    Well those are all beautiful socks. I guess if you really wanted to you could wear each sock while you knit the seconds for them. I know some people do that on purpose. I am enjoying the Wollmeise also, cannot wait for the latest to arrive. Happy second sock knitting.

    Love the color of those pansy socks!! And I would have loved that Tulip sweater when I was a little girl. Such bright, fun colors! I’m sure she’s going to love it.
    Good luck with second sock knitting!

    Wow! I love those socks – all those cables are really cool.
    And that sweater is just the cutest ever. She might have a new favorite! 🙂

    Beautiful socks, especially Ellington. That pattern is a work of art.
    I love Cotlin. It washes great, no shrinkage, no pilling and feels good when I wear it. Hope you have the same good experience with it. The Tulip sweater is super cute.

    Sonya- You have been busy. If you’re gonna do it, do it in a big way.
    Cute little-girl sweater.

    What great socks, and the Tulip sweater is adorable. I think Knit Picks has actually made some good strides with their yarn as of late, or maybe its just more affordable and I’m making myself like it.

    Some wonderful looking socks! The Ellington is wonderful, and I love my WM socks – I actually have a matching pair, and so can wear them 🙂
    And, I’ve started a sweater…. It’s a Knitting Simple cardigan, with Jo Sharp Alpaca Kid Lustre in a navy. Top down, raglan sleeves. The first six inches have been fine.. Socks are much more portable

    What lovely socks. I am really partial to geometric designs in socks. What, no gardening yet?
