I started the next pair of socks right away (as most of the #12socks knitters did)
Here is the start of my August socks:
I love that colour !(Patons Kryon in Summer Moss Jaquard) So fun and happy looking!
If you are wondering where the foot goes in:
I am attempting for the first time to knit two socks at the same time on one set of DPN’s. I have seen it done lots of places from the cuff down before, but I am doing it toe up. The DK method (from the cuff down) is explained in “Knitty” from 2006 some time. I have been wanting to try this for years and never got around to it…
My reasons for doing it this way are:
I have two balls of yarn and don’t want any leftovers. THis way I can knit until I run out of yarn. Also: since the yarn is already patterned I wanted the sock plain (too much is too much you know…) and knitting a second, long, plain sock is not so much fun. This way I avoid doing the math, having leftovers AND the second sock syndrom all at once! 😀 Clever, I know!
