Socks on the Brain

Taking the advice of my ever-wise friend Claudia, after I finished the first sock, I immediately cast on for sock number 2. I almost always knit socks toe up, sometimes I find a sock pattern I like, and decide to mix it up. Honestly, sometimes I look exclusively to knit something with a completely different construction. Like, my Monkeys, I knit those top down. I’m currently thinking about starting the Through the Loops mystery socks, before they’re not a mystery anymore. Once these are finished, I’m going to start a pair with my Rocktober yarn. Oh, and Brandt needs a third pair. After all, it is Socktober.

Day 8: 6 more rows of ribbing to go!

    Yay Socktober! I agree, I tend to do better with finishing the second sock if I start it immediately after finishing the first.

    You go girl! Personally I’m a top down sock knitter. But then again I’ve never tried toe up either. One day…

    Wow I love those colors! What yarn is that?

  6. That yarn is fabulous! I followed the link for it. Is it Tropicale? It looked the closest to yours but the blue on yours looked purple on theirs.
