On the Needles

After a really long and much needed break, I've made a return to sock knitting:


Maybe it's the weather - when it starts to warm up, sock knitting definitely becomes more appealing!  When it's hot out, having a big sweater in progress on your lap just doesn't sound fun :) 

I feel like a dork, but I'm knitting another pair of Sweetie Pie Socks, which are my own design.  It might be dorky, but these socks are cute and fit me really well!  It's a free pattern on Ravelry if you want to knit a pair too.  I'm using stash yarn, some purple Panda Cotton that I've had for a while, yay for healthy yarn stashes :)

What are you guys knitting/crafting?

Very cute pattern - thanks for making it available!
I also took quite a break in late winter, and just began knitting again a couple of weeks ago. Socks, of course! First, a pair of plain, no-thinking-needed socks, and now a pair of waving lace, using yarn I dyed with walnut hulls :)

Oh...my...goodness! I am terrified of making socks, but I love the texture of these so much - I just might have to give it a try!!

i really feel like knitting a hat, which is somewhat nonsensical for the approaching summer.

i love the fabric you have under your sock, in fact i have a purse made with this fabric!

Cute socks! I'm knitting a jedi cloak for my nephew in black. Not terribly exciting to knit, but he's excited about it.

oh for crying out loud... that hedgehog fabric is out of control cute!! I don't recall the last time I knit socks! I barely recall the last time I knit. haha I enjoy knitting socks.

p.s. linked within is looking good over here!

Dice pouches! One player needs a pouch, everybody needs a pouch! Good way to use up leftover yarn.

I'm knitting a pair of socks, too. I really like your pattern - and I've added it to my library - so, I can knit it next.

Love that pattern :) Gorgeous colour too :)

Debbie said...

Love the color and the pico edge. So of course I had to download the pattern. I currently have a wrap, a sweater and a pair of socks on the needles. I don't think that is enough so will cast on something else just for good measure.

I love the socks! I'll have to order some of that yarn. I haven't found any vegan yarns with nylon/elastic in them to make socks.

I'm knitting gardening gloves with cotton.

Love the color of your socks. I'm not much of a sock knitter usually but I am working on some pedicure socks right now and loving them :)
