Guilty Pleasures Socks

I’m still knitting up a storm! 😉

Finished these Guilty Pleasures Socks a couple of weeks ago. They were fun to knit and not too difficult either.

I made them in Patons Stretch Socks yarn in Mineral shade and they took approximately 1.5 skeins to make (this was not the yarn called for in the pattern, that used just one skein in keeping with the theme of this book). They were one size pattern, fit great.

These socks are featured in the book: 101 Designer One Skein Wonders.

Actually a lot nicer in reality than the photos are!

Now that I’ve “aced” the art of sock-knitting, I’m working on my first pair of knit gloves now. Kind of challenge but fun. I’ll share some photos when those are completed too.

Happy Crafting !

Aren’t these purty!!! 😉

I finished these Cat’s Paw socks  (click for pattern page) about a week ago.

 I wear them all the time, they are so warm and cozy and it’s been SO cold in the past few days.

I actually amazed myself that I could knit socks that look as complicated as these do (at least they do to me LOL).

I used to look at sock patterns and completed socks like this at blogs and think to myself: NO WAY! But it wasn’t that hard.

There were a couple of glitches in the pattern though that I made a few changes to. When I’m working with DPN needles, I don’t need any additional challenges. 😉

                          

How’s your weather been? Are you keeping the warm-woollies out too?

Looks like another good day for soup.

I made Sweet Red Pepper and Corn Chowder on Tuesday and Cream of Cauliflower yesterday. All gone, already!

Both recipes from my cookbook:  Not Just for Vegetarians.

Happy Crafting and Cooking ! 🙂
