I have been waiting for a little while now for some yarn to arrive so I can get started knitting a secret project so I didn’t want to start anything big or difficult. So, always having a huge stash of sock yarn available, I decided to knit myself a pair of knee-high socks for the cold days. I’m using some Regia Harmony Color. The socks are toe-up with gusset and heel flap and I’m knitting them two at once.
I have just finished the heel on both of them and this is what they look like right now. It’s nice to be able to knit something for myself for a change 😉
Also, you might notice on the picture, I’m using square needles. That’s right, square! This is the first time that I’m using my new Kollage square needle. I have carpal tunnel in one hand still (the first hand was operated about 6 months ago) and I wanted to try those as square needles are supposed to be gentler on the hands. So far, it seems like I’m getting less symptoms when I knit with them so, yay!
Colour Twist is a toe-up sock with a fun twist and slipped stitches, to make the most of those interesting hand-dyed yarns. This toe-up sock has a gusset and a patterned heel flap

I’m working on the second variation for my knee-high sock pattern, a cabled version. I’m using a beautiful colourway of Wollmeise called Pistazie. The colour in these pictures is not true to life, it’s much nicer in real!
Here’s a little preview:
I finished my first pair ever of knee-high socks!
These will be part of a new pattern, with a simple toe-up knee-high sock pattern with heel flap and gusset. I will add three variations to the pattern, including this stripy version, a cable version I’m working on and a still undecided third variation.
Here are a few pictures of the finished pair.
I’m working on a new pattern, which will be for knee-high socks with a basic “recipe” for 3 women sizes and different options. This is the stripy option. I have finished one sock and am now working on the second one. The second option will include cables and the third one might have colourwork, not too sure yet. They are knit toe-up and include a gusset and heel flap.
I’m making these in 2 different colourways of Zauberball Crazy. I love the Zauberball! 🙂
I just finished a very simple pair of socks for my 4-year old son Connor. They are made using Regia Nations, the Germany colour. Knit top down with a short row heel with 48 stitches.
I was visiting my mum in France and decided to knit her a pair of Skew. She saw my pair when I visited a few weeks before and loved them! I had some leftover Felici sock yarn from my Agate Capelet, but not enough of one colour. So, I decided to use both colours and alternate between colours every other row. I love the effect I got this way!
