Why this journey?

I've been retired now for over a year. Husband has been sick but is now doing quite well with new pacemaker. I continue to knit and knit and crochet. Recently I became friends again with my sewing machine so you will see some of those projects, too. Thanks for reading.

Twice as nice

If one sock is wonderful then two must be glorious.  And I do not want to catch a bad case of OSS (One Sock Syndrome.)

Two at a time, Magic Loop method.  The yarn is Patons Kroy, self striping.  The needles are Addi Lace, their 2, which is 2.5 mm.

Tiny needles, tiny yarn.  Washable wool for warm sox, with
a bit of nylon.

Not sure my color choice is still available.  I'm really focusing on stash decline, as in knitting with yarn already in the house or garage.  The color is Krazy Stripes and in French it's Rayures Funky. 

Here's the free pattern I am using, though Patons offers several for this yarn.  Free Kroy Sox Pattern.  Hope you can get it -- may need a login.  I've had one for several years.  They've never 'bothered' me with emails or ads.

I'm using Magic Loop method, which means two balls of yarn and two sox, both growing at the same time.  At this point I'm about half way down the cuff or leg, on my way to the heels.

I think I just might wear these funky sox with my
reliable black flats.

The second clue arrived for the Bernat Waverly Mystery Afghan.  Hoping some of you are knitting along. 

Fierce winds here today.  Makes the relatively warm 50 something (F) feel like icy teens.  I'm now in for the duration and the needles are calling.   

May you have a blessed Lenten season.

  1. Those really do look quite yummy. I'm halfway through a the first sock of a pair and I thought I measured my gauge correctly, but the #$%# thing won't go over my heel... fit beautifully otherwise. Guess I'll have to frog and go up a hook... really wanna finish them,they're such a beautiful red...
