It is Once Upon a Sock time, where crafters get together and talk about socks we’ve made or are making. It’s kindly hosted by Paula at Spin a Yarn, so pop over there to join the link up! ETA: Paula does have a question about the continuation of OUaS so definitely pop over and have a think about that!
I actually have some sock related content this month. How exciting! Behold, one completed sock! It is a Hortensia in Socks Yeah! using Chart A. I have cast on for sock 2 and had started it off with Chart B as per pattern (they’re fraternal socks, I guess?) but I think I am actually going to rip that back and just do Chart A again but with the flipped colours as Chart B is doing my head in and I really like the vine-y look of Chart A.
I also oopsied and didn’t change colour for the toe so I’ll be repeating that Deliberate Design Choice (do it once and it is a Mistake, do it twice and it is a Design Choice, eh?) on the second sock.
I do have to admit that after (and well, tbh, still in) a bit of a snit with sock knitting (something about small yarn on small needles isn’t working for me right now), I have cast on for a cowl (using the No More January Blues! cowl pattern – originally a MKAL I didn’t manage to do at the time – with the yarn I picked up as part of the Blacker Yarn’s EYF related Lucky Dip), which is currently occupying my commute knitting time but as I have completed the cast on and made a decision about the chart choice for the second sock, I do feel much happier about my likelihood of completing this pair soon.
