More Socks

Standard

Artichoke Socks on the needles at the moment:

I think they’re turning out quite nicely.  The yarn is Wendy Happy, I’m hoping this time that they won’t grow as much as the last ones I did in that yarn, the patterns seems to be a bit tighter so we will have to see.

Unfortunately, since I took these photos my knitting needle has snapped, so these are going to be on the back burner until I can sort it out!  I’m hoping it can be a repair job with superglue and I won’t have to buy a new needle as these ones aren’t the cheapest.  However, they are brilliant needles, they’re Knit-Pros and there is no snagging over the join so I would fork out for another set if I had to!  I think these are the 2.25mm ones, but I also have a 2.5mm set for socks.  Oh well, wish me luck!

Some Cheery Socks

Standard

Here is a picture of some socks I made out of Wendy Happy,  a 4-ply yarn made of bamboo.  They are very soft, warm and comfortable, however they seem to grow quite a lot as I wear them.  I think I may have to sew some very thin elastic into them; has anybody else had this problem?  I am working on some lacy ones in the same yarn so will update on this when they are finished.
