These are my Witch Socks. I received a skein of red and a skein of white sport weight "sock" yarn (90% merino, 10% nylon) for my birthday. I dyed half the white yarn black and thus was born the color patterning for these socks.I used a variation of Cat Bordhi's Houdini Socks and Personal Footprints. These particular socks were knit heel up. Collaborating on a recipe for them so keep an eye open!
And I finally managed to get two socks on one circ started. I didn't CO both socks at the same time. Did about eight rows of one toe/heel and then moved them to DPNs to hold. Then did about eight rows of the second toe/heel. Moved the first one back on the circ and voilà! Two socks on one circ. Because this pair of socks will be scrap socks, this method will help me make them identical and use up each excess ball of yarn as I go.
I really love riding the bus with my granddaughter in the mornings. It gives me knitting and quiet time to begin my day. After walking her to school, I walk at least a mile and a half before I start the rest of my day. I'll hate when the heat comes back next summer and I have to walk at dawn or roast....but for now, it's wonderful.
