On the Needles 12/14/2012

I have missed a few posts because-well just because it is a busy time of year.

I have 2 pair of socks on needles.  This first is ZigZags sock pattern by Elaine Anderson, free on Ravelry.

This is a glimmer yarn from Pylmouth Yarn, Stiletto, color #200.  I put it aside so I could do a pair with a less demanding pattern.  This one isn't hard but takes more paying attention.

The other pair is another free pattern from Ravelry, Hermione's Everyday Socks by Erica Lueder.  There are 4 different rows but it is an easy to memorize pattern.  This is KnitPicks Yarn, Stroll Peacock Glimmer.  The color in the photo is too bright it is a peacock color with silver threads.

Check out the other posts at Patchwork Times.


  1. Both are lovely! I have never seen sock yarn with a "glimmer". Does the yarn wear well?

  2. I love both of them! I am looking for some new patterns because I usually do a K3, P1 rib to the toe. I am a bit hesitant to try something new though because it takes so much time and then if you don't like the results, ugh! But I like the looks of these 2 socks very much! Cheers! Evelyn

  3. Nice! Off to Ravelry to check the patterns!

  4. Love the way your zig zags are turning out -- and I agree - that sock turns out wider than other socks I've done with the same stitch #.
