Do you knit or crochet socks? Do you like to blog about them and share your progress? The first Thursday of every month, my friends and I link up with each other and talk about our socks…the good, the bad, and the ugly. The beauty of a link up party is the ability to jump in and out when you want to share….even if you’ve knit just one row or want to talk about what you’re dreaming of making next. Click the link below to join in, follow the instructions, then link back to my blog so we can all share in the happiness of your gorgeous socks!
I’m excited to say that I’ve started knitting on my Rose City Roller socks again! I wish I had finished socks to show you; however we ALL know that it takes me months to knit one pair of shortie socks…lol. I wish the knitting fairies could speed things up for me. I was able to get the ankle completed and I’m half way through the slip stitch heel flap. I have to say this is one of my favorite heel types. I think it fits my foot very well.
The front of the foot stitches are on the shortened magic loop needles. The heel stitches are each on a DPN and I’m using another DPN to knit the stitches. It’s pretty fast on the S1, K1 rows; however things slow down on the purl side. Since I will have vacation time during Thanksgiving week, I hope that I’ll be able to get some real progress done on these and maybe, possibly have a finished pair to blog about next month. I really, really want to knit some Christmas socks and I already have the absolutely perfect yarn for it lined up and ready to go!
Until next time, Happy Knitting!
