One and a half socks

Today I am linking up with Wool on Sunday with Janine at  Rainbow Hare.   I don't do as much knitting or crochet as I could, but occasionally some appears in my blog.

I am knitting a pair of socks, one of which I will put back on needles and carry on with as it didn't go quite so well, but the other one I'm pleased to say is now at the grafting stage at the end of the toe.

The wool I bought for this was way back when I lived in Yorkshire and bought from John Lewis store in Sheffield and is a Kaffe Fassett one by Regia.  We've been lived here in Dorset for over 3 years now, so the yarn has been waiting patiently to be knitted.  I've found recently that rather than sitting with my iPad that I'd feel more productive if I did something in the evenings so the knitting has come out.

I can't do Kitchener stitch without looking at an old magazine that has step by step pics so when I find that it'll be a sock done!


  1. The socks are looking good love the colours!

  2. Your socks look lovely - great colours! Thank you for linking up with Wool on Sundays :)

  3. Hi Sue,
    I have never knitted socks although I have knitted for years. I'm still trying to get to grips with knitting in the round! Also I find Kitchener stitch a bit of a faff. I used it recently but had to have my laptop balanced on my knee watching a Youtube video of a demonstration at the same time.
    I love the colour and have used a bit of Kaffe Fassett for my quilts
