Hope you had a lovely Sunday. After a stressful week, here are a few well deserved days off. I knitted of course, and sewed a lot (not always successfully but I enjoy it a lot), bought some lovely plants for my appartment and did some other little crafts as well.
Last week, I asked you what were you doing with your leftovers, and stripy socks and mitered squares blankets came on top of the list. I don't think I'd have the patience for a mitered blanket, though I love the idea of a long run project and the beautiful result. Here are my first pair of stripy socks:
Pattern: My own recipe for stockinette socks. (Reminds me I have to write down the pattern someday)
Yarn: Schachenmayr nomotta Regia Uni / Solid 4-ply, 26 grams for each color of the stripes and 22 grams for the cuff/heel/toe sections.
Needles: Addi Turbo Circular 2.5mm, 80cm.
They were quite fun and quick to knit. I tried both jogless techniques (techknitter's blog is an encyclopedia!) and "normal" knitting for the stripes, decided they all looked similar and in any case visible (probably doing something wrong), so I "hid" the jog at the back of the leg and underneath the feet, and I'm trying to convince myself that I don't care having imperfect socks! :p
What is your favorite jogless technique? Do you have any tricks to share?
I still have plenty of leftovers waiting to become stripy socks! I may cast for another pair tonight.
Have a lovely week!
