Successful Avoidance of Second Sock Syndrome

 


Stats: Regia Something-or-other
Needles: 1.5 Crystal Palace bamboos

For the record, these socks have visited two socks classes, three supply dates, one diocesan convention, and one trip to St. Louis.

Lesson learned: when working with self-striping yarn, pick a spot that's easy to find for the beginning of your cast-on (oops). Posted by Picasa

The Place Where the Other Sock Goes will be so pleased! (I offer this "curse" not maliciously but only in order to ward off the jinx of the Evil Sock Eye.)

Great job, Emily! You were such a quick study. I'm proud of you! Now...time for the Magic Loop....

Thanks, Susan and Cathy!

Brooke--I've already rolled them together. It may not prevent entirely it's wandering off to the place of which we shall not speak, but it may delay it a little.

Margaret--every time I had to stop and pick up dropped stitches with my tiny crochet hook I said to myself, "next time, magic loop."

Way to go. Enjoy the satisfactory feeling of wearing hand-knit socks.

they look great but what is self striping yarn???

I knit but havent in a while. My daughter made bautiful legwarmers this term in school. I'll try to get a photo for you.

Oh and I loved the idea of well-travelled socks

They are such pretty socks! If I had socks like that, I would never put on my shoes.

Thanks for all the compliments!

Lorna, self-striping yarn is dyed at set intervals so that when you knit with them, stripes will "magically" appear.
