Isn’t this Sock Ruler clever?!
And we have one to give away as a prize in our current Sock Hop KAL. We’ve been knitting away but there’s still time to join in so come on over! So many beautiful sock in progress!!
KAL ends Feb 29th.
This increase creates a beautifully smooth, rounded beginning to the bottom centre of the cable (see close-up photo at left).
The linked tutorial above works the centre stitch as a ‘kfbf’ but in this case I worked it as a ‘k1, p1, k1 in next stitch’. It can take a little practice to get the tensioning just so, but well worth it for the final result, don’t you think?
Brand new sock pattern today!
Save big on the Geese in the Bog sock pattern when you come and join us in the Sock Hop KAL in our Ravelry group – Impeccable Knitters Gathering Place.
Here’s a bit of a sneak peek at what’s on the needles at the moment.
These are my Geese in the Bog Socks (named for this lively tune played here by the Tannahill Weavers). These socks are currently being test knit and will be available early in the new year.
Check out the Test Knitting thread in the Impeccable Knits Ravelry group to see the wonderfully hilarious names the testers have come up with for their projects! Everyone’s welcome to stop by to see how things are progressing, see more pictures and you can ask to be notified when the pattern is ready to go.
Don’t forget that we have an ongoing KAL (knit-along) thread for both A Celtic Quilt 1 & A Celtic Quilt 2 in our Ravelry group. Join any time – knit at your own pace – share your progress and enjoy the love!
p/hop is celebrating their 7th anniversary!
p/hop (pennies per hour of pleasure) raises money for Doctors Without Borders while sharing a love of knitting and crochet – download free patterns and donate based on the amount of pleasure the pattern gave you; what’s not to love!?!. And they are having give-aways all week to celebrate their milestone.
