it’s obvious I have a problem, it seems all I can knit are socks. I can lie and say it’s all I have time to knit, but I forfeited that excuse when I casted on for my fourth sock. yep, four socks. no, not two pairs of socks. four. seperate. socks.
we’ll just focus on one today, some cara inspired knee-highs. I wanted to make the sock hop socks into knee socks, but I wasn’t sure if I had enough yarn. ever since then I’ve been kinda obsessed, seeing them everywhere and talking about them all the time (just ask Illanna). finally this past weekend I started some socks with the new yarn pirate yarn, not really sure what pattern I was going to follow. I guess I never found out, so stockinette it is. then it became a ‘how tall can I make these socks” challenge. I started with 4 ounces and so far I still have 2.6 ounces in the skein. will I be able to get to my knee with exactly half the yarn? I still have no idea. I’m scared that once I go beyond the 2 ounce limit I won’t stop. thigh highs here I come!
I’m pretty much in love with this yarn, it kinda reminds me of STR, with it’s tight twist, but thinner and a little softer. I’m knitting with 2 mm’s and started with a 60 stitch count. right now I’m at 72 stitches and I guess I’ll increase two more times and decide what happens then.
notice the color I chose isn’t pink? we’re making headway in one battle over here!
