This pattern is a simple slipped stitch sock. It was written for a sport weight yarn but you could easily use it with a fingering weight yarn. The colorway I picked wasn’t the best for the pattern as the slipped stitches don’t show very well. They would have shown more in a more variegated colorway. But I just might knit this pattern again soon and will choose a better-suited colorway.
I picked this sport weight yarn hoping that I would be able to finish a pair of socks this month, but I’m afraid that it just wont happen. It will feel kind of strange though because this will be the first month since I started knitting socks over two years ago that I haven’t finished a pair!
I haven’t sewn or stitched anything since the bag I showed you last week but I’ve just joined two friends in a quilt-along so I’m hoping to be able to do a bit of sewing sometimes soon! I’ll be using these for my blocks along with an off-white fabric. I won’t do as complicated blocks as my friends are though and will probably just do simple cartwheel blocks.
Stop reading here if you’re part of the Vesper sock club and haven’t received your package yet!
I received another yarny package in the mail this weekend.. A few weeks ago I just happened to be catching up on my blogs when Julia from Knitterly Things posted that she was doing a 3-month sock club with her Vesper yarn. I don’t know what happened, it must have been the wool fumes… A few minutes later I had signed up for the club! I received the first shipment this weekend and received this really cute self-striping yarn with a pin and a tape measure.

My first thought was: “wow! it’s bright!” then I thought that it was a really fun colorway and would make really fun socks. The base yarn is different than the one I’ve used in the past so I’m looking forward to knitting it up.
