Despite my desire to be fully committed to the Socks with Sarah KAL, I have not always been able to knit on a sock every day. This has frustrated me as knitting is calming and therapeutic for me. Thankfully, however I have completed the Socklets:
To recap, the yarn is Knit Picks Bare Fingering Yarn dyed by DH using green food coloring quite a few years ago. I used a size 1 Knit Picks fixed circular needle for the Magic Loop method. If and when I make this pattern again, I will probably try to use a size 0 instead, though these fit nicely enough.
I am pleased with how they turned out and yes, I am keeping them for myself. I haven’t done that in a long time but these are special because of who dyed the yarn.
I am very anxious to cast on a new pair of socks. On the “Knitting with Sarah” blog, I saw some socks she was knitting using the “Simple Skyp Socks” pattern and just knew that would be a good portable sock pattern. Once again, I will be using some yarn that DH dyed around the same time as the yarn used above. He was playing with food coloring and Kool-Aid on these so I have no idea how this will knit up. The yarn is Knit Picks Bare Fingering and I will use Knit Picks size 0 6″ nickel dpns this time. Here’s a picture of the yarn:
Unfortunately, I am having to take pictures with my phone as the camera I regularly use is back east with DH. That combined with poor lighting due to cloudy weather, etc. made this challenging. However, the colors in all three pictures are fairly accurate.
