Lots of my blogville friends do a Sock It to me Monday post and I kept forgetting to join in 1and then had many months of no sock knitting.
As I have a pair I cast on at the weekend I thought I’d join in this week.
This is my first time doing a different colour for cuff, heel and toe and I wasn’t sure whether you just use the separate colour on the heel flap or when you turn the heel as well. I switched back after the heel flap.
Does anyone have any tips for sorting the ends where the colour changes happen to ensure you don’t get lumps?
I knit the cuff, heel and gusset on my sock wonder needle and have placed it on the long circulars whilst I start on the 2nd. I hate counting rows so prefer to do the length of the foot of a vanilla sock two at a time.
I love the colours in this yarn from Ripples Crafts. It was called It’s Bluebell Time of Year. It was a limited run and Helen lost the recipe for dyeing them. So clever to create all these colours and have no brown or muddiness happen.
