Sock it to me baby...more socks
I am on a roll with knitting my basic Sue sock pattern. I love this pattern. The more I knit it, the better I get. I have even mastered the Kitchener stitch to close my toes. I have had a mental block doing this, but finally after umpteen tries, I finally got it. Of course I am saying the sequence out loud every time I do it, but who cares. The dogs don't pay me any attention so I just keep right on going.
Here is what I was mentally casting on as I was finishing the last pair of socks. I still have an orphan to finish from another pair, but I will tackle that after the next two projects. Here are the latest socks.
This is Tofutsies yarn. I have never knit with it before. So far it's been pretty good to knit until I drop a stitch. I find it a bit splitty when trying to pick up a dropped stitch. I keep a steel crochet hook next to me when knitting socks. I love how soft it is and the way the pattern is spiraling down the sock. One sock has a wider pattern to the swirl than the other. I am not sure if that is my tension or what. I am using #1 dpns. and 72 stitches. I do love superwash wool socks better so we'll see how this goes.
