in the meantime…

My packages with all my sweater necessities might not all get here for another two weeks or so, so I needed something to start on now.  I have some super-soft worsted acrylic yarn that’s been chillin’ in a drawer forever, and I wanted to try something new, so…

socksI’m making two-at-a-time toe-up socks with a Fleegle heel!  If I complete these, it will be my first pair of knitted socks!

I got this method from the videos Kathryn Rubidoux is using.  Click here for the Youtube playlist, consisting of 18 explanatory videos.  You don’t even need to purchase the pattern on her website — just use size 7 or 8 needles (whichever you need for the gauge, which I believe she said is 4″).  I’m disregarding the gauge but changing the pattern accordingly, so it should be fine.

I’m really pumped about these — I hope they’re comfortable!  When I crocheted socks they made my feet hurt almost instantly, so I’m hoping these will feel better.

Well that’s all for tonight, thanks for stopping by!
