We’ve been knitting along on our socks for a week now. We have slow starters and speedy knitters. We have socks!!
Tina chose to work a pattern on her sock, and it is the lovely, lacy, Dragonfly Socks. Here’s her report:
“Chose the Dragonfly Socks from Cavyshops.com. Pattern was written as top down, so inverted dragonfly pattern to work as toe up. Have about 1-1/2 to 2” before beginning heel. Here is where tiny feet would be a plus!”
Courtney is already on her second sock! This is what she’s shared with us.
“When moving from short rows of toe and heel I needed to pick up stitches to avoid getting a hole. I just knit the picked up stitch together with another on the next row.”
Kjirstine is ready to start the heel.
“This is when having big feet is a disadvantage. I finally finished the 8.25” for my foot and I am ready for the heel. I am incorporating the pattern Socks on a Plane. White socks seemed too boring, so a little cable twist gives me more to think about.”
Melissa is enjoying some time away with her family, but she plans to start soon.
She says “ I’m on vacation and then casting on. Since I”m working worsted I think I”ll finish no problem during the KAL.”
Kelley is also ready to do her heel! Her update is:
“ I am ready to turn my heels. I am not sure if I will do the short row heel or pick another heel from a different pattern. I decided to do a pattern on the top of my socks. It is a broken rib pattern which has a 2 stitch repeat + 1. Row 1 – knit across row. Row 2 – P1 K1, P1 across row.”
