Girlie Socks

June 21, 2013

The other week, I went shopping with knitting friends.  In Berlin, I bought some more Taiyo sock yarn.


I have made these socks before in Kureyon sock yarn and I really enjoy them.  This time I made them bigger since I wanted them to bag a bit.  The leg is seventy stitches and the foot is sixty-five.  The pattern calls for sixty.  I had to do a little tweaking.  I am very happy with them.  I’ve worn them twice.  They wash beautifully.  As with other Noro, they feel better with every wash.  Now, I’m thinking about going back and getting some more.  They also had some other yarn that I think would be good for socks.

New Socks

June 8, 2013

I picked up the Sock Report last month. There are so very many great patterns that I had a hard time deciding on what to make. I am currently in Summer socks mode. I bought two different sock yarns at Sheep & Wool and I was eager to start.  I got Taiyo sock yarn and Panda silk.  Panda silk makes great socks and they’re completely machine washable and dryable.  I can throw them in the hamper and let Sweetums do what he will with them.  I know.  It’s a scary thought, but this is Sweetums after all.  Where was I?  So I made socks with the Taiyo and I love the lumpy texture and the slow slow color changes.  These socks were great fun to make and now, to wear.  Last Saturday was a knitters day out and I bought another skein at A Little Sheepish in Berlin, but that’s another story.  I have to take pictures first.
