Knitting along...

If you have seen enough socks you probably want to move right along and check out all the other lovelies on your list.
I just seem to be stuck in a sock groove. They have all been for me so far, but I am wondering how many pairs I can make for gifts and if anyone on my list would appreciate socks at Christmas when it is 35C out?



Pattern from Socks a La Carte - Jump over the Candlestick on the leg with Dutch Heel and star toe. It's cool enough out to wear these today.



Very comfortable.



Bendigo Woollen Mills yarn - 4 ply Luxury in Purple Storm.

 
There has been a little progress on the Reversible Wrap this week. I sewed the sleeves on part one so that I wont have a whole lot of sewing to do at the end.
It also meant that I could count the rows required for part two and I'm nearly there.
I cast on part three to take to NCB tonight, plain knitting backwards and forwards is always good when socialising. Little concentration required once I get a rhythm.
Joining the yarn along where I like to spend time finding inspiration.


Happy Creating.

How could anyone not love a pair of beautifully made Mistea socks for Christmas?

Its a dead certainty that it'll get cold again so I say go for it. People will adore socks as a gift!

love the colour, how does the bendigo wool wash up with socks. I have used it for cardi's and jumpers but not sure it wouldn't mat with the sock wear. I am working up the courage to try a pair of socks soon.

Love the "Dutch Heel", never realised we did it a special way! Won't catch up on the reversible wrap, seeing how far you got, but I am enjoying the proces...
