Kathy has a few questions about socks. I have answers! It is dark and rainy here (boo) but everything is becoming so green outside!
#1 Do you have a favorite sock yarn?: I have many favorites. I love Wollmeise and I also love String theory colorworks and Miss Babs. I am overloaded in sock yarn (see post from last week) though and won't be buying any more any time soon.
#2 Do you knit top down or toe up? If I'm doing a basic sock (no pattern), it will be toe up. If I'm following a pattern, then I will do as the pattern instructs. I'm good like that.
#3 Have you ever knit a Holiday Stocking? Yes--I knit stockings for both of us to match our tree skirt this year.
#4 Have you tried KnittersPride Karbon needles? No--should I?
#5 Do you knit through the back loop on your gusset pick ups on the first round? No--should I? Why has no one told me this/
#6 Do you know someone famous who knit socks? No?
#7 It is Pi Day. This is Miss Pie's designated Birthday.
She is 3 now.
Will you have Pie today? Happy birthday Miss Pie! I wasn't planning on it but I will get some at the grocery store!
#8 Have you seen the see through clogs that show off your handknit socks? Yes, I even got some once but they were incredibly uncomfortable.
#9 What's the biggest pair of socks you've ever knitted? I guess the christmas socks?
#10 What color is your current or last pair of knit socks? Brown and navy. I have some lovely turquoise blue that I've been experimenting with for a cable and beads pattern. I gave up and found a pattern on Rav and I'll start that one soon.
