The first pair of 2009 socks!


I finished up these socks over the weekend, making them the first pair knit only in 2009! To recap the details, these are knit using the waffle stitch pattern on the legs and stockinette on the feet. The yarn is Trekking XXL, color 133 and I used US 1's.

I also finished unpacking my sewing/knitting/spinning room and I now have my swift and skein winder set up. I'm going to try to finish up Juno before I start anything else though (including socks), so you might be seeing a bunch of black, sweater shaped blobs over the next few days. If it gets too boring, I've got some fuzz babies here that can help fill some blog space.

Very nice socks! I am impressed with speed at which you can knit a pair of socks. How many days does it actually take you to knit a pair? Just curious!

Love these socks. What technique do you use - dpns, magic loop?

To answer Vanessa's question, I can knit a pair of socks in 4 days. I know this from the Knitting Olympics which was 16 days long and I knit 4 pairs. I don't try to knit that fast regularly though. At real life speeds, I'd say I knit a pair in about 7-10 days depending on what else is going on in my life.

To answer Jane's question, I use DPN's. I'm not a fan of circs in general so I've never tried magic loop. I like DPN's a lot.
