    About

    After forty plus years of knitting this is my first attempt at making socks. I’m finding it a bit tricky handling all of the needles but I’m really enjoying using the yarn. It is dyed randomly so that it comes out in various patterns. The one I am currently using is a zebra pattern. I can’t wait to see how the other yarns knit up. 😊
    **8/1 One sock completed. It’s not perfect but is very comfy. Hope the next one is better.

      Lovely! I’ve just started with this colour, did you have any difficulties with the stripes or did they just come naturally?

        Not with the zebra stripes. They’re completely random. Fun to knit with. The fairisle and plain stripes you have to match up. 😊

      Good luck with the sock knitting...I'm a little addicted to making socks. So far I've used 3 different colourways of this yarn and all have knitted up beautifully. It also washes well on a machine 40 wash. Looking forward to seeing the finished socks!

      Looking good so far, I’m hoping to start knitting my first pair of socks soon too ! I love the colour of wool you have used :)
