I finally got off my butt and finished the hug me socks. They went fast once I set my mind to it.
I tried a different bind off with each sock. I used my usual yarn over bind off and then the sewn cast off which I’ve never tried before. I like the look of the sewn cast off better but its not as stretchy as the yarn over cast off. I’m not sure which I prefer. The yarn over cast off is on the left and the sewn bind off is on the right. I did these socks one at a time. I usually do socks two at a time so these arent quite identical. The first sock is longer in foot and leg than the 2nd. I realized I made the foot to long and fixed it in the second sock.
I also ordered way to much yarn. I got some great glimmer sock yarn from knitmommy Its 75% superwash merino and 20% nylon and 5% stellina. You can see a bit of he sparkle the stelina adds in the picture. The color is called poison.
I also ordered some soccuso from loopy in colorway JWM’S Wind Rain And Wool. I’ve never used this yarn before but it feels nice and soft. That purchase also enabled me to become a loopy groupie yay. With my soccuso order they sent me a free skein of sereknity in gothic rose. Also a nifty bag some sweets and a free pattern! The sereknity is sport weight so I’m not sure what I will use it for but it sure is pretty and I get to try new yarn. In case you cant read the labels soccusu is on the left and sereknity on the right.
I’m thinking of casting on for fox faces using mountain colors crazy foot in harmony honey pictured below. My daughter also wants socks so I’m going to use the leftover quince and co yarn. I also have some sweet georgia yarn on the way. Wish me luck. I hope not to cast on 50 pairs of socks with all this tempting yarn.
My little girl is turning 3 years old tomorrow. Happy Birthday Davis!
