... brought to you this week by the needles. Lots of needles! I decided last week I needed to knit some socks with some of my stash of sock wool before winter is over. Then I will get a chance to wear them at least this year. This is the start of one. I am currently turning the heel which is why it is all over the place. These use 5 needles as it is but I have 6 going for the heel as I didn't put the other half onto one. I actually like this pattern. It is the Regia line of sock yarn from Kaffe Fassett & the pattern that goes with it. I got it as a freebie with the wool when I bought it locally last winter! I like this pattern to work the heel much better than the pattern on the sock yarn label from Spotlight. I have a couple of balls of that yarn still & I have done that pattern a couple of times. I don't find the socks take long to do either. The band at the top was slow but as soon as you get to the knitting around it is quite mindless & simple. I love watching the rows appear. This yarn is Landscape Shade 4251 Storm by the way. I love socks. It's quite fun to make your own!
