When we moved, all my sewing machines went into storage so I can’t take part in the regular WIP (Work-in-Progress) Wednesday which is only for sewing projects.
I was able to bring my knitting, crochet and embroidery supplies with us, so I thought I’d share what I’m working on this week.
Sunday evening, I cast on the stitches for the first of a pair of knitted spiral tube socks. (clicking on link will take you to the pattern)
It took a bit to get back in the rhythm of knitting in the round, but the first sock is working up quickly and I’ve only got a couple of more inches to complete in pattern before I can start decreasing to form the toe.
For those who might be wondering, the yarn I’m using is the wonderfully soft Bernat Satin. It’s 100% acrylic worsted weight and is machine washable and dryable.
So far the Canadian winter has been comparatively mild, but should we have a sudden cold snap, it will be great to have a pair of warm, cozy hand knit socks to wear.
