As the month of December progresses, I am being very mindful of not going on a cast on frenzy, which is rather hard for me as there are so many wonderful patterns being launched for gift knitting this year.
I am currently working on my Plain Vanilla socks that I’m knitting in Schoppel-Wolle Life Style Ambiente in the color Mint Grau. I love the color striping of this yarn and the softest. While I know these might not be perfect for every day wear as the yarn is 100% merino wool, they will be perfect for bed socks.
I have about 2 more inches to go before I start the heel. I am thinking of trying a new heel for these socks and would love to know of your favorite heel for cuff down socks. Please leave me a comment, I really do enjoy learning new techniques for sock knitting.
- Cozy Autumn Socks – I’m currently working on the mate. Sadly I have not made much progress as I’ve been too distracted by other things.
- Night’s Watch Shawl in Squishy – I’ve made great progress on this shawl and have decided to turn it more into a scarf.
