Sock it to me

So, Katie and I are both skeptical about sock knitting, but one of my New Year’s Resolutions was to try socks.

So I cast on for this simple Knit Picks Toe-Up Socks pattern. I figured that the only way that would make sense for me would be a try-on-as-you-go, two-at-a-time pattern. This one looks pretty basic. So far I’ve just started the tippy toes:


I’m using Plymouth Yarn Happy Feet. The color is a mocha brown with a bit of a bluish cast to it, but the picture makes them look greyer.

In other knitting news, I’m almost finished with Liliane. I just need to knit the pocket and sew on the buttons, and it will be good to go:


I’m not 100% sure about the buttons I laid out above. They were purchased (but not used) for a different project. But I think they might work.

I’ve got a couple of secret patterns that I've finished, too. One of them will probably appear here, while I’m going to submit the other, a sweater project, to a magazine. (Fingers crossed).

This week is Spring Break—a perfect time to catch up on knitting projects and plan some warm weather patterns. yay!

Girl, don't be a hater. Socks are awesome. (and cheap--one skein).

The yarns for socks are unbelievable. Just gorgeous.

Hope to see you at C's.
