The Socks with Sarah KAL starts today! This is going to be a fun KAL & the best part is I’m going to knit a bunch of socks this year because of it! YAY!! The official start date is today however, I started this pair of socks in December, did a few rows & then put it down until the beginning of January when I finally finished with holiday gifts & was able to sit & knit something that I wanted. 🙂 And when I saw this KAL being mentioned by some of the other blogs that I follow, I decided to join in. I love-love-love to knit socks, so this now gives me an excuse to knit socks every day!
I just finished sock #1 last night. I’m very happy with the way it came out. I’m knitting the November Socks and it is a 12 row repeat. I’m using Patons Kroy socks Jacquard. I love the yarn & the combination of colors. I don’t know if it is the yarn or the pattern but the sock seems like a nice thick sock! Good & sturdy…LOL
The toe of the sock was done differently than I’ve done before. I was decreasing at the end of each needle, where normally I decrease at the end of one needle & then at the beginning of the next one. I wasn’t sure how this would look and for a minute I thought I was not understanding the pattern correctly. I had to go back and look at pictures. LOL I was afraid that the decrease in the middle of the toe would be bothersome, but it isn’t. And the way it ended up looking is pretty.
