In between projects.

I’ve got a lot of yarn that I just don’t know what to do with. I really haven’t had the time to plan the next big project. So I do what I do when I don’t know what else to do: I knit socks.

I bought some Cascade 220 for the Crazy Stripe Afgan that I ended up not using. But it’s great for socks.

I am knitting toe up with a turned heel. It’s a neat little trick invented by Judy Gibson. It’s called the Your Putting Me On sock. The advantage is obvious – you can try on the socks as you go along. Plus you don’t have to worry about running out of yarn before you reach the toe. Not a problem with the Cascade 220 which has great yardage.

For the top of the foot and the leg I’m knitting Mistake Rib. A bit of a pain to knit, since I have to pay attention to how each row begins, instead of just ribbing my way around. But I like both the look and feel.

One sock is done and I’m on the foot of number two, working the ankle gusset. I’ll have to think about what to make next when these are done.
