Seventh Year of Projects - Week 4



And here we are back for the fourth week in a row!!  Let's see how long I can keep up!!

This past week I only worked on my Tour-de-Sock Stage 1 Socks. This is a nice pattern and has some interesting twists to it!  The heel was one I have never done before so that was fun!  It is toe-up which is not my preferred method - actually it is fine - I just have less practice with toe-up designs.  Sock number one has the leg complete and is ready for the cuff; sock number two has two and a half repeats left to do on the leg and the cuff.  I like to knit my socks two at a time in tandem - one toe, second toe, first foot, second foot, ...  Here is where I am after nearly a week of knitting on these:


I need to locate my sock blockers for some better pictures once these are complete!!

My other projects have taken a back seat this past week.  I have not done anything else craft-wise at all!

Stage 2 begins on Tuesday afternoon so I want to have my Stage 1 socks complete and hope to get some progress made on the second pair!  Tune in next week and see what I worked on!

  2. I like that yarn with that pattern. I too, do my socks concurrently. No second sock syndrome here.

  3. Your socks look great, I think it's the combo of very pretty yarn with such an interesting pattern. I knit my socks in the same tandem way just on dpns and like you I can knit toe up but it's just not my preferred method. I'm sure you'll have them done in time for stage 2 and I'm looking forward to seeing stage 2's socks.

  5. That is a most unusual pattern and the yarn is perfect for it! I am wanting to try 2 a at time on the same needle....I've done concurrent before so same needle is next and also toe up....who knew there were so many ways to make socks?!?!? Have a great week!

  6. I enlarged the picture to see the socks better. What a fun pattern! I can't wait to see them on the sock blockers and see what that pattern does when it's stretched out. :)

  8. Good for you competing in Tour de Sock - I love the pattern and the way you knit them you will defeat the second sock syndrome for sure.
