First pair of self-striping socks (WIP)

Starting a new pair of socks. It’ll be my second pair ever.

Paton’s Kroy Socks, Stripes, Cyan Stripes.

UPDATE: I’ve finished both socks! They look exactly alike, even. They’re a teeny bit big for me, but otherwise they came out good.

Ribbing the cuff:

(Yes, I do knit on the round with four DPNs in the work, using the 5th to knit with when I can. It feels more comfortable to my hands.)

Just after finishing the heel and getting into the instep:

Starting to shape the toe:

And sock #1 is finished!

Looks great so far! Can’t wait to see the finished product!

Nice yarn!!! Keep up the good work!

Knice Knitting :happydance: I also like to knit with 5 dpns…

Yeah, it’s a good thing I like wooden needles, too (especially bamboo. I love them!). Otherwise, I’d forever be needing to buy extra packs of DPNs, since they don’t expect you’ll break one ever, but wooden DPNs always come with a 5th needle.

Do you play the oboe or something like that?

That’s a nice looking sock! Love the color combination.

:cheering: :cheering: :cheering:


Very pretty yarn and you’re doing a great job. it will be interesting to see if the second sock is identical. i find when i knit, the second sock is usually different! but that’s ok. linknit41

Ohhhh, I’m liking those colors! I’ve always wondered what that yarn looked like knit up! Can’t wait to see your FO!

Great job! Love how that yarn is working up!!

Woot! Now all that’s left is to do it ALL OVER AGAIN!
