So I’ve got a lot unfinished projects. A lot. In terms of socks alone I’ve got 8 unfinished pairs right now.
This includes socks that are hardly past the toe, and socks that only need their ends woven in.
Something needs to change.
So I’ve set myself a goal. No more casting on. None. Until these socks are finished and I’m down to about 2-4 projects. Personally, I prefer to have more than one project on the go, I get bored and I like a difference between “hard” and “easy” projects, so it’s not having more projects in itself that bothers me, it’s the fact I have 8 that I’m half-working on right now that is the problem. So hopefully every Friday for the next 8 weeks I’ll be able to show one of these pairs (plus the pair I cast on in the meantime) in all its finished glory!
Here are two projects I don’t think I’ve mentioned on the blog before, both socks in King Cole Zig Zag 4ply.
The pair above in red and grey are for my boyfriend. I’m pretty much to where I would begin the heel turn for my foot, but of course, men have to have such big feet so I’ve still another few inches before I get to that point on these. I like the yarn, but it’s made from a slightly different content to the pair I’m making for myself (below) and it can feel a bit weird when knitting. I think it’s 50% wool 50% nylon. These socks are 3 by 1 rib to make sure they fit!
This is my pair, one of the two that are nearest completion – Vanilla Latte socks on Ravelry. I altered the pattern as someone mentioned in their projects to centre the pattern for a toe-up version. I really like it and I’ll definitely be using this pattern again in another pair.
