WIP Wednesday – Knitting Socks

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)

Spiral Tube Sock

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.

I would be so pleased if you chose to share by clicking on one of the buttons below!

    My mom was an amazing knitter and hooker – I don’t remember if her mom knit, but I know she crocheted, as she tried to teach me how to do it. That was a disaster, LOL – I learned how to make granny squares and not a single one of them was the same size! Now I don’t have the strength or dexterity in my hands to do it even if I could refigure it out, but I sure do admire those who CAN!
