July 6th, On the Needles

I am still working on my skyp socks which are a gift for one of my quilting friends.  I mentioned before that she has bunions so I made the foot of the sock a little larger then usual.  I have finished one sock but I have not closed the toe in case I need to redo part of the foot.  Being optimistic, I have started the second sock.  I will be seeing her on the 13th and I'd like to have both socks ready to close the toe then.

This yarn, Stroll from KnitPicks makes such nice stripes but notice the heel and the area in the toe where it pooled.  It is a mystery to me.  Sometimes I like it and sometimes I don't.

Check out the other knitting projects at Patchwork Times.


  1. I love the way it pooled at the heel. Your friend is very a lucky lady! I am so glad Judy L started On The Needles!!!

  2. Judy, I went back to see some of your previous posts. You can really whip those socks out! I am thinking my SKYP isn't going to show up much either with the yarn I am using. But I guess when they are finished the pattern becomes more apparent. Happy socking!!!!!
