The foot is an oddly shaped body part to make clothes for.
After I finished knitting the big sweater I needed a smaller project. Seeing all the beautiful socks that Jude had made inspired me so I picked up some Kroy Sock Yarn and a set of 5 bamboo needles.
I’ve only knit one pair of sock before so I’m still trying to figure out a method that works for me. The last pair were heavy work socks and I wear them every chance I get.
The kroy yarn is much finer and blended with nylon to make them durable. It also self patterns as you knit it.
Using 5 short needles is way too fiddly for my big hands so for the second sock I used a method called magic loop. Way way easier and I’ll never go back.
I just ordered a 60″ circular needle in anticipation of learning to knit two socks at once – maybe one inside the other. It sounds like hocus pocus but it will be cool if I can figure out.
This ball of yarn is up next. It’s 75% merino and 25% nylon in a colourway named tartan from Tanis Fibre Arts.
