Two cuffs and two toes which I feel are deserving of their own post, having become an all too common sight on the blog when talking about ongoing projects and wips.
Almost two years in the making, several rest periods and not a whole lotta love left for them, but finally the supporter socks are done! It would seem my timing for finishing them is perfect (!!!), as Mr K has just worn through the sole of the first stripey socks I ever made for him, in a Regia yarn. Sadly I suspect these ones, knit from a skein of Rainy Days & Wooly Dogs wool and nylon blend yarn, won’t be quite so hardwearing, but we’ll see.
Having worked the exact same number of rounds for the feet, it turns out that they are slightly different lengths due to my tension changing during the course of the project. I only noticed after blocking them, and having actually got past the blocking stage with these, I decided just to leave them as is and keep quite. I’m sure nobody will notice!
Now these are finished and wrapped up for the birthday boy, I’m considering casting on a pair of socks in a yarn from very deep stash which is the absolute antithesis of the British yarn I have been speaking about recently:
I’m sure could be finished in time for festive gifting, couldn’t they?!
What’s your record for knitting a pair of socks?
