I made great progress last week on my socks. I’m cast on one sock in each colourway and have been tandem knitting them back and forth. This method seems to be working out well for me and Iove being able to play with both colours at the same time. I managed to turn the heel of each sock this week.
The Tanis Fiber Arts Blue Label in Brick.
This colourway seems to be pooling a bit but I think the colours are close enough that they won’t be that noticeable once they are complete.
Tanis aptly named this colourway Brick. The colour is spot on!
Wandering Cat Yarns Barn Cat BFL in Parrotfish
I thought this was going to be a variegated skein but to my surprise when I started knitting I realized it was striping. I’m really enjoying this colour combo, reminds me of the beach.
Now how have your socks been coming along??
Woweee! We have two finished pairs of socks already!
Sara of LundenKnits knit her socks in a mere 3 days! Incredible.
She used Tanis Purple Label Cashmere Sock in Sliver Plume.
I love the shades of grey with subtle pops of pink in these socks.
The colourway is a special kit colourway and not available through Tanis shop.
I believe Sara has a second pair on the go already!
Monika of Smoking Hot Needles also finished her socks in 3 days.
I want these ladies sock knitting stealth for sure!
Monika knit her version with Wandering Cat Yarn’s Alley Cat BFL in the Fern Gully colourway.
Everyone else’s socks are looking good!
Here are a couple of WIP’s from this week.
Left to Right : Versions by Deadlysmurf, Laina and Hotcheese
Left to Right : Versions by Fancybell, Redknitz, and Tracylw.
Make sure your projects are tagged CCObusinesscasualkal because there are ton’s more WIP shots to come next week!
I’m going to leave you with a short video of how I do the travelling stitch. I know some folks are having a bit of trouble so I’ve tried to explain how I do it.
The video was a quick job because I have a sick little girl at home so hopefully this won’t confuse you even more!
