Oh, right. Socks.

10 Sep

Oh hey, remember these? Yeah, well I finished them forever ago and then never posted anything about them. I set them aside to dry somewhere and then completely forgot about their existence.

Just for fun!

I had a lot of fun making these. It’s a great pattern!

In other news, I had my first knitwear design class this week. I have fallen in love with the knitting machine. It’s not as relaxing as knitting by hand, it’s more akin to working with a sewing machine, but I love watching my swatches take shape so quickly! What can I say, sometimes instant gratification is nice.

Finally! A Second Sock!

7 Jul

I decided that I needed to knit something for just me this past week, so I cast on for my second Soybean Sock, which I started on in February. I finished the first one really fast, but continually failed to start on the second for months.

This lovely pattern can be found for sale over at the lovely Herbivore Knits. It’s a pretty, fun, and stress free pattern, which I really needed after a few of my last sock endeavors were total disasters.

I’m using the recommended yarn Panda Soy (hence the name Soybean socks) in Provence. I really love this yarn, even if it has the tendency to split.

After I finish the sock I will be moving onto an exciting new project that I can’t wait to share with everyone! I’m in the middle of swatching with some 2nd Time Cotton and it looks very promising. More on that and a finished pair of socks coming soon!
