While I spend some of my days sewing,
my nights are often spent knitting, especially as the
days grow cooler
and the nights grow longer.
I have long wanted to knit socks!
And tried many times…..and failed!
But I guess it was just about finding the easiest pattern
for the old brain to follow!
For someone who made garments for more than forty
years by sewing the pieces together,
there’s something pretty magical about creating a
With its heel flap, short rows and kitchener stitch!
My first effort with this pattern, Rose City Rollers by
Mara Brynner on Ravelry,
was too big because I couldn’t find my small 2.25mm,
|It isn't actually pointy!|
I used 3mm needles and a yarn that maybe a 5ply?
Anyway, they are a little big but perfect for lounging
around on the couch in Winter.
The second pair, right size needle, right size yarn are
I changed up the cuff which is not perfect but for me it's
a learning experience.
Now I want to make more, in different designs and
Just wish I could knit quicker!
But in the meantime, I'm hand piecing these bits for my
Hearts Garden quilt......
