One Photo & Twenty Words: The Red Socks

Today I'm joining the lovely Abi of Creating Paper Dreams for One Photo & Twenty Words:

self striping sock wool
"Find the old pattern book. Buy double pointed needles," my Mum said. Found the book. Couldn't wait for the needles.
(...so I've started another sock, on my little circular needle, which I like..)

Head to Abi's to see who has managed to fit everything into twenty words this month. There'll be nice pictures too!

Lea Lacoste said...

Maggie said...

Another great choice of wool. It is amazing how it works out. Can we put in orders?!
You could enter them in Helena's pairs next week!

Lizzy Hill said...

NEXT year.....I'm NOT getting on so many DT's & I FULLY hope to join in this sort of thing....loving those colours you're combining there:)

Ruth said...

That wool is utterly fantastic! You could probably start a wee Etsy shop ... you'd sell out, no trouble at all!

Love the colours.

That wool is brilliant and I love how you're getting into those socks. Can't wait to see the end results

Wow, racing ahead here! I admire your skill with that circular needle. And the wool is knitting up beautifully.

You have been well and truly bitten by the sock bug! Looking good.

Love that wool, and I can't believe how quickly you are making them! If you run out of worthy sock wearers ... I'm a size 4 ;-)

Nathalie said...

There must be something going around as I stumbled upon several blogging sock knitters (or sock knitting bloggers) recently :) If only I knew what double pointed needles or circular needle even meant! :P

Jennifer Shaw said...

Oh you definitely have the sock knitting bug! Love this yarn. I always knit on double pointed too. I have a fancy set that are made of aviation aluminum. I haven't tried them out yet. Susan loves hers. Looking forward to seeing these completed.

Susan said...

Those twenty words are perfect to describe the feeling of being addicted to sock knitting and just wanting to knit! I LOVE that yarn you've chosen.

Abi said...

I'm getting so much sock envy at the moment! Just lovely. Tell me, did you use a tutorial online or anything? I would love to start a pair but need to work up the courage first!

Louise said...

i loved the colour you used before...think i love this colour even more. they look fab!

Karen said...

I loved the colors of the first pair, but this pair even tops those---the pattern and the colors are fabulous!

Melissa said...

Yep, it does look like the bug has bitten you . . . gonna be another great pair of socks around your place soon! :)

Miriam said...

What wonderful colours! I am smiling at your impatience to get started.

Sheena said...

These look fabulous x
I think I need you to teach me :)

doris sander said...

oh the socks! perhaps i need to pick up a new craft this summer!

iwillbloom said...

Ooh, another sock! I love the colours!! Is it called "coral snake" perhaps?!

Karen said...

Love the 'magic' wool you are using that makes it look like you are knitting a pattern.

Alison said...

I still can't believe that that wool works the way it does! Xx

Jo said...

That wool is gorgeous. I've never tried knitting socks with circular needles, maybe I should x

Gail said...

Looking nice! I just can't deal with all those double pointed needles - love my circulars instead. :)

Rachel B said...
