Pink socks

Posted by

I’m aware I’ve not blogged much recently. I blame the fine weather keeping me in the garden and also my upcoming wedding.
I try to complete a small wedding job everyday. Whether it is updating my guest list, answering an email or researching ‘mini-moon’ venues for a couple of nights away after the event. I find doing something everyday stops the panic rising and switches off those busy voices in my head thus allowing me to sleep!

However, every evening I do a little knitting or crochet.

I’ve just finished these socks.Pink knitted socks

Although I somehow felt a bit of a fraud it made a lovely change, working up a pair of socks in DK.

They were not without incident. After admitting to myself that my previous 2 pairs have been a little on the roomy side, I came down one size and cast on the number of stitches for a ‘large child’. All was going well until somehow I started the toe too soon.
On trying them on I found the heel disappearing under my foot. After much muttering I convinced myself that they would stretch, and left them out to block.

Spot the difference?

However last night, seeking perfection, I undid the toes and added another half inch. I used the brown section of the stripy yarn for both toes.

I’m glad I did.

The weather has turned cold again. This bank holiday weekend I’ll be doing a lot less of this.

  1. Ooh wedding projects! I have so many to start I’m thinking I should probably take your approach and do a bit everyday…. 6 months to go yet for me for the past 6 months have flown by!

    1. My first pair took me forever. But I’m a lot faster now, to the point where I really need something with a pattern in it to keep me interested. Try a pair in dk. They fly!

  3. The socks turned out lovely. The yarn you choose is a beautiful color and it looks so soft. It’s always fun to read your blog posts. I hope your week is going well.
