This vanilla sock is practically knitting itself! The gorgeous self-striping yarn is #sutherlandsock by @caledoniadyeworks I really liked having the option to add a mini skein for toes and heels. Because I’m a little bit sad, I started tagging my sock projects on Ravelry this morning (every now and again, my internal administrator breaks free and categorises stuff). It’s 16 months since I cast on my first pair of socks. I have completed 37 pairs and have 2 pairs on the go. The first 5 pairs were cuff down, using the excellent tutorials by @winwickmum Since I started knitting toe-up socks I have used the #fishlipskissheel 15 times, and #sockmaticianstoeups by @sockmatician 15 times. 29 pairs were vanilla socks, but I’m starting to experiment more with patterned socks. I have knitted 24 pairs for me, 6 for Jamie, 5 for Himself, and 2 pairs as gifts. On average, I complete a pair of socks every 2 weeks. I don’t know if I should be impressed 👏👏👏 or horrified 😱😱😱 #knittersofinstagram #knitting #operationsockdrawer https://www.instagram.com/p/BR-kdumDszA/
I’ve definitely got my knitting mojo back 😊 I’m so enjoying this pattern 😍 There’s enough pattern to stop it being boring, but not so much it makes my brain ache! This is the first time I’ve used the #smoothiesock by @artists_palette_yarns and I really like it. I will definitely be getting more of this ❤ #operationsockdrawer #knitting #knittersofinstagram #hoarfrost https://www.instagram.com/p/BRf9nzajaNe/
I bought some new yarn that we received at work today. It’s called Victory Sock by Knitted Wit, an 80% merino and 20% nylon blend. I usually don’t go for variegated yarns, but I really like these ones. 😁
| Unravel |I’m really liking ‘Unravel’ so far, the little yarn character is so cute and I had to draw it at some point so I decided to make this little drawing. I almost don’t even finish it but I must keep going forward! I really hope it’s good enough and that the perspective isn’t too weird! I’m really sorry for all the flaws… I’m also not very used to drawing slightly more detailed backgrounds. Anyway, I hope it’s good. Also, very importantly, congratulations for having over 9,000,000 subscribers, Jack! You deserve every single one of them and the ones to come. I actually feel kinda bad because I haven’t been able to make a YouTube account so I’m not subscribed but I hope some day I can be so I can hit the subscribe button like a boss too! [EDIT] Okay now I have an account!!
