Tag Archive: loom knitted socks


Finished Friday


Well, half a pair of ankle socks. I had leftover yarn from the last pair and I hope there is enough to make these shorter ones. They were toe-up. They started with the Kitchener cast-on. A good tutorial is found here:

Here’s my sock:

It fits and I am quite happy with how it feels. If I don’t have enough yarn when I reach the heel I will try to find something similar for that part. These are not supposed to shoe over the shoe, so…  Here’s what has been done since the completion of the above:

I love toe-up Kitchener because there is no seam on the toe. With fibromyalgia, every seam or tag causes pain so these are so soft and pain-free for me. Yay!

Oh, by the way, that is a CinDWood fine-gauge, 56 peg loom. I think it is my favorite sock loom.

My Own Socks


My brother bought me yarn. Here is the process of my own pair of socks!

Finished this one Saturday. Thus no Stream of Consciousness.  Hands and brain were busy!

Oh, look it fits!

Here is number two in progress.

It’s sad that I had to break into skein number two. (Just a couple of rows). That means that there won’t be enough to make another pair of socks like these, but, I will attempt to make a pair without the cuff, sort of hideaway socks.

Oh, and here the pair I finished today:

Yay! Socks for me!!!

Stats: CinDWood small gauge, 56 peg loom. Red Heart Heart and Sole yarn. Two-by-two ribbing for an inch and a half then an inch of flat knit stitch then the German Short-Row heel. Then six and a half inches of flat knit, then German Short-Row toe. I am loving making socks!

Finished Friday


Yep, I finished another pair of socks. These are the same pattern as I posted last Friday. They are all the same yarn and color though the cell camera just doesn’t capture them the same. They are now in the donations bag.

There was enough of that yarn left over to make these cute booties on the KB fine-gauge baby bootie loom. Two-by-two cuff, German rows heel, drawstring toe.

Then I started missing making the dolls so I made another. I made him a little longer in the legs and arms than I usually do. I think I like that better. My biggest mistake was not stuffing the whole doll and then sewing closed. I tied the neck first but that makes the head too wrinkly. Note to self: don’t do that next time.

The basic instruction for these dolls are in this tutorial:

How was your week? Have a great weekend and Happy Labor Day!

One bit of a compression sock. The compression is the tighter stitches at the ankle and at the toe. It is quite comfortable. I made it on my new KB Sock 2 that my brother bought for me.

This pair of wool ankle socks I made on a small gauge, CinDWood, 56 peg loom.

I love this loom most of all of them. The pattern is adapted from the many that are on the packages of the other looms, and many I found online. Two by two Knit/Purl brim. a couple inches for the ankle, then the heel decreases and increases per foot size. Then about 6 1/2 inches for the next part, just straight flat knit. The toe matches the heel. These were fun and easy and I am wishing I could keep these but all the socks pictured here were with donated yarn so these will be donated to our charity Hugger Hats.

Comfie Footies


Ran out of the yarn I needed but happy just the same. Used  the pattern on the KB site for Comfie Footies, Sugar and Cream cotton.

Finished Friday


Okay, does it count that I only have one ‘after-shower, lotion, cotton bootie’ finished? I’m almost finished with the mate.

This one is a tight fit on my 81/2 foot so I think it will be comfy for a size 7. Now I’m wanting to make a pair for myself! When I finish with bootie’ #2 I will make sure I lost the pattern or YouTube tutorial.

Made (Making) Monday


I finished these cotton slippers for my friend today. Now I have to wait until payday to send them. KB His and Hers looms, followed by the how-to YouTube.

Meanwhile, I’m in the middle of making these hats:

 

My Latest Binges


My pain requires distractions. I can knit (loom-knit) to keep my hands busy. I watch shows to keep the mind occupied during the day. Those who might criticize might take drugs for your pains. They don’t work for me. This way, something productive happens while I watch or listen to a story.

Sometimes my brother and son and or husband join me. I like having others to watch with. I will watch it alone, but I want others with me because then we can talk about the show and things I might have missed or interpreted otherwise. How do you like watching shows, alone or in groups?

So my newest favorite is Outlander, It has surprised all of us how much we like this show. In fact, I am starting to read it (listen on Audible, too) tonight.

When my brother and son and husband aren’t available to watch with me, I am working my way through Riverdale, which can be a bit much even for me.

And Royal Pains, which is getting better in the later seasons. My biggest complaint is the little brother and how irritating he can be, but as he is married and has a wife to pull him in line, it grows on you. The doctor does seem to have a lot of McGivers using balloons.

We are finally caught up on Fear of the Walking Dead. Tonight’s show was fun with the old west ghost town. And I laughed so hard a couple weeks ago when there were flying zombies!

And now we’re into NOS4A2 It isn’t as scary as it seems on the commercials. In fact, it is kind of interesting.

My husband loves and has drawn me into Jessica Jones. We’re watching the latest season.

What are you watching?


Here’s the thing. I’m using the leftover yarn from making my brother’s socks to make ankle or short socks. Today, except for the sewing bits I finished my first short sock. Hope I have enough to make the next sock This one is comfy so I think it will be fun to wear these. I rarely make something for me. Mostly because I don’t need that much and I love that I can make things for other people who need them.  But these are for me–if there is enough yarn.

I know it looks funny with the strings and toes showing but it got too dark for sewing and I needed something to blog about today. So Bo–  only half done so can’t add the om!

Oh for those who might want patterns or help here is the one I kind of followed:
