This past week I finished up my Susan B Andersons “How I Make my Socks“. This is a great go to pattern for plain simple stockinette stitches. I would say it’s an advantage to have an idea of a leg length you like and your foot length, but if you were a beginner knitter you could still master this sock pattern. With the yarn I was using and the obvious pattern stripe that formed on the leg of the first one I wanted the stripe pattern to continue down the instep unbroken and I wanted both socks to match. This I think you’ll see was mastered, now I like these socks! They match and we all know I wasn’t too fond of this yarn to begin with and picked it more to use it up out of the way than any real love of the yarn but now I’ll quite happily wear these and love them and that’s a result! My project page with notes can be found here.
My next pair of socks are going to be with this Zauberball in the Cafe Flair colourway, it doesn’t quite look like it but it is a green/black colourway. I was going to knit Time Traveler Socks but have instead decided to knit The Forest Moon of Endor by Heidi Nick. Heidi Nick is the designer for the month of September in Sock Knitters Anonymous so I chose one of her patterns and September’s socks will now qualify in that group, assuming I finish those socks. I won’t be starting those until Sept 1st but they are lined up and ready to go.
In the meantime I’ve plenty of other knitting to keep me busy. I’ve two samples for designs to knit up and this week has been busy with all sorts of things that I’ve not gotten as far with this as I’d have liked but that gives me something to concentrate on this week.
