Chocolate HedgeRows


This sock pattern was fantastic, as was the Hazel Knits sock yarn. I made the heel flap a little long and that caused some pooling around the ankle joint. I like the way the pattern continues on the heel and how stretchy the fabric is. I used a 40 ' size 1 addi turbo needle.

My next projects are:

Chevron Scarf from Crazy color sock yarn

Murmur sweater in Rowan Biggy Print (can't find a link for this)

Farm themed Bag for son's wooden farm animal toys (something similar to this)

Only one toe to go: HedgerowSocks


The Socktober Mystery Socks were ripped and I started Hedgerow Socks instead. I don't like sock knit patterns with yarnovers or other hole creating stiches and Hedgerow socks fit the bill. I saw the link to pattern on Yarn Harlots site.  I am using size 1 40'' addi turbo circulars, one sock at a time only. I like this better than dpns now because it is seemingly less dangerous to knit around my son this way...fewer sharp points. Only one more toe to go.

mystery sock Cuff


It's socktober so I thought I would finish the second diagonal cross rib sock but instead I have started a knit along mystery sock from through the loops. The deal is, part of the pattern is released each week, so far about 60 rows/week. So I'm knitting this sock without knowing what the final product looks like. I'm kntting two socks in series so that i can finish both socks by the end of the month. I have 10 more rows of my second leg to finish (not shoen here) before I start on the heel and whatever is in the third 'clue'. The yarn is hazil knits sock: chocolatier, the needles are susan bates US 0.
