I recently finished a couple more knitting projects. That means it is time to find another project to make. Well, I have a list that is quite long, so guess it is a matter of deciding what will I make next.
Awhile ago I mastered knitting my socks on two circular needles instead of four dpns. I’ll never switch back.
The lastest socks were finished just in time for the cool weather that is setting in. I love to knit tube socks as they fit all sizes. You can find the pattern here.
Some of my completed socks:
A knitted neck warmer was also completed. This one was done in grey Red Heart Comfort yarn on 5.5 mm needles. I used my pattern, found here, given to me by my mother in law over 35 years ago.
I did track down the source of the original pattern to here and have decided that the pattern given to me was a modified version of this one.
A comparison of the finished items show mine is slightly smaller. Both fit really well. Of course the needle size and yarn thickness also determine the size of the finished item.
Two buttons and crochet loops were added to fasten the neckwarmer. You can wear it fastened at the back or front, whatever your choice.
Now we are into Novem-brrr it’s time to wear scarves. Do you have a favourite?
