Another pair of wool socks on the CinDWood 1/4″ gauge, 56 pegs. Toe-up using the following as my tutorial. They are a little big for me, closer to shoe-size 9. With the size and ankle just improvising. Two-by-two e-wrap/purled ribbing.

Pretty proud of this gray on gray hat. Needle knitted, purled and knitted according to whim. Vaguely I followed this pattern:

I hope it isn’t too blurry.

 

I will probably finish this sock tonight. Again, it is using the above tutorial for the toe-up method. Not as easy on the KB Sock Loom. I like the strength of the metal pegs but the shine makes it hard to see. I love the wood, but the pointed corners make holding it harder on the hands. And the rectangle shape make the toe-up Kitchener hard to keep untangled. Still, using an acrylic worsted yard means less knitting to get to the final product.

As the storm clouds gather, I remain happy for my accomplishments. I will need to whip out lots of hats for the charity, Hugger Hats, the need is great. So sock #2 will have to wait for a few quickies.

Have a great weekend!
