Just a quick post because I have someone coming here today to show me how to load my quilting frame properly and how to get the right tension on both the upper and bobbin threads on the machine. Yay!
Yesterday afternoon I grafted the toes on these bed-socks.
DD is wearing them over her ordinary socks but they fit just fine.
The pattern was modified from the “Lacy Rib Socks” in Socks from the Toe Up by Wendy D Johnson. I knitted these cuff down (my preferred style) on dpns using an hourglass heel (that I learnt from Lynne Vogel in The Twisted Sisters’ Sock Workbook). They are knitted in the 2011 soft version of Moda Vera Marvel 8ply (DK) on 3.25mm needles. (Marvel is now a much harder acrylic yarn and I don't like it anywhere near as much)
