Bless My Socks...

Brynwood Needleworks - Lorna's Laces Sock Yarn
After I finished the Baby Kimono, I was itching to start a new knitting project. I wanted something nice and portable for Tuesday nights with the Fiber Divas (our new name) at Paneras. Socks were the perfect choice!

I pulled a couple of skeins of sock weight yarn from my stash. (Yes. I also have a yarn stash - especially in favorite sock weight. sigh)

This is a limited edition dye lot that I've had for a few years.  It's Lorna's Laces "Spring Forward" colorway, in a superwash wool, nylon blend. It's "bouncy" and soft...everything you want in a new pair of socks.

These make up quickly, too. I prefer the "one-sock-at-a-time", five double-pointed needle method. I started these on Sunday, and I'm already working on the toe of the first sock.

I'll finish this sock soon, and then make the second. I should have the pair finished by the end of the week - just knitting at night while Handsome and I watch television together.

I haven't decided whether or not I'll keep them or put them on the pile for Christmas gifts. It's hard to believe I have to be thinking about such things already, but I don't want to be making gifts at the last minute this year, so I'll probably put these aside for someone special.

Five double pointed knitting needles, a counter tag and yarn...I would have a huge tangled mess that would be fodder for the trash bin! And here you are with beautiful socks! WOW!!! Great Christmas gift and ready early equals WIN WIN!!!

I wish I could learn a few things from you about socks! I've been teaching myself how to do them with You Tube. Its been interesting. It all starts making sense when you understand how they are constructed. I'm not a fan of DPNs. It feels like I'm wrangling with an octopus. I like two circulars and now I've figured out the Magic Loop method too. :-)
