I mentioned last week that I made my own stash sock of the month club with the yarn I have in my stash (a la yarnharlot).
Well, I am happy to report that the first pair of the year is done!
I pretty much everything about these socks. The pattern, the color, the way makes the pattern makes the colors all non-pooly and lovely.These are some quick knitting socks too. I knit them in just five days. I consider myself a quick knitter, but that sure is quick, even for me.Ah, Bellatrix, you are a good pair of socks.
The Pattern: Bellatrix by Monkey Toes (free Rav. download there)
The Yarn: Knitting Like Crazy, Crazy Soft Sock in the City of Blinding Lights colorway (there is still another skein of this in my shop, tempt, tempt.)
The Needles: US Size 2
The Time to Knit: 5 days
The Modifications: I knit six repeats on the leg instead of seven. I sometimes get nervous with my size 11 feet about running out of yarn. I had bunches of yarn leftover though. Probably could have done 8 repeats!
So, I guess my friends were right. I probably should make 24 kits for this year instead of 12. But, my thought is I have lots of other things I want to knit. So, I am going to go with 12 kits for now and if I start running out I will make more at a later date. Because right now I have baby knitting fever (it's my sister that is preggers...def. not me)!
Anyway, happy knitting! Coming up later this week: baby knitting WIPs and some STR Rare Gem goodness.
