Thursday: It’s All About the Socks

Hi All! I’m sad to report that I have only completed 11 more rows on my Smooth Operator Socks by Susan B Anderson. The good news is the KAL has started and you can check out the Itty Bitty Knits group on Ravelry to see more! There is a hashtag to use on social medias and is #SOSkal…keep a look out for it when you are doing your social media thing. I know several of my blogger friends are working on these socks and it’s really cool to see everyone’s progress. Melinda from KnitPotion finished hers this morning and they are truly stunning! Go check them out if you don’t believe me.

I also want to say a huge Thank You to all who responded on my dilemma with the baby cardigan. I’m moving smoothly along and can’t wait to share the FO!

Eleven rows equated to two more stripes! I’m moving my progress keeper each time I update you on my progress, so you can see what I’ve accomplished. Isn’t it cute?

If you feel so inclined, and wish to join up with our Thursday Sock Along, let one of us know in the comments. See below for my fellow Thursday Sock Knitters! We also have a hashtag on Instagram #ThursdaySockAlong

    You are doing great. I need to get going on my husband’s first sock. It’s been ignored.

    1. Thank you 🙂 I wish my husband wanted a pair of socks; however he has sadly said no. He does enjoy the hats I knit for him, though.


  2. I know I’ve said it before, but I just love this yarn and the way it stripes! These are looking so great!!! (As is your baby sweater!)

    1. Thank you…me too! Every time I knit on them, they make me happy. I’m almost finished with the left side of the cardigan…I’m hoping to finish that side today and get the right side done tomorrow or Saturday.

    Thank you so much for the great feedback and the link, Paula! 🙂

    Your socks are looking terrific! It’s so hard when you have two projects on the needles and really enjoy knitting on BOTH of them! Lol. Super cute project bag, by the way!

    1. Thank you, Melinda! I hate having to leave my socks on the wayside; however this sweater must get finished! I adore that project bag too. I realized after I took the picture and posted it that I grabbed the bag that my baby sweater has been sitting in instead of the bag the socks are in 🙂 I figured it wasn’t worth the trouble to retake it 😀

    Your socks look great so far! I love the striping. I’m afraid I haven’t gotten very far with my Rose City Rollers. I started the first pair and have a bit of the heel flap done, but that’s it. The past couple of weeks I’ve been too busy with other things going on that I haven’t even had a chance to post an update. Hopefully, next week I can rejoin the Thursday Sock-a-Long.

    1. No worries, Jennifer! I didn’t get very far this week either 🙂 I’ll look forward to your next post!


  5. Looking good. And glad to hear you’re happy with the baby sweater again 🙂

      1. Yay! Will have a look when I get some blog reading time. BTW I was thinking about joining your sock Thursdays. What are rules?

      2. Woo hoo! The guidelines are work on a sock…doesn’t matter what kind / what size / what weight of yarn. Post your progress on a Thursday. You do not have to finish a sock…one of our bloggers worked on her first pair for almost a year 🙂 Link up to the others that are blogging about socks and have joined in. I initially put the links to the other bloggers sites and when they post their sock post, I edit my post to link up to it. Really, there are no rules; however these are some guidelines. Sometimes a blogger might not have a post because of something else going on in their lives…and that’s okay.
