WIP Wednesday: Something New This Way Comes

I needed something to knit while I wait for July 1st when I can cast on my second Camp Loopy project so I went for a shallow dive in the stash. I found nestled among the sock yarn a couple of skeins of Patons Kroy Socks in Grey Brown Marl. I have cast on 64 sts for a plain stockinette sock. I did fancy it up a bit with twisted rib for the cuff. I’m hoping I can get these socks done lickety-split before July 1.

Ellen and Helen asked what size needles I use to knit my socks. Normally I use my most favorite Skacel size 1US (2.5mm) double pointed steel needles. They are my go to needles for most fingering weight yarn. I knit the Stitch Surfer socks (which you’ll see Friday because they are done) on Addi Turbo 32 inch size 1US (2.5mm) circular needles. I am knitting the above socks on the same Addi Turbos because I wanted to leave my double pointed needles free for my next Camp Loopy project.

    Pretty socks! I like all the Kroy ragg colorways and that’s one of my favorites.

    Pretty color! Swatching for socks gives me a headache. I thought I was a loose knitter but I can’t get gauge on size 0 needles either. Uhh.

    Glad that you’ve managed to find something new to keep the fingers busy – and soon, soon, it will be July 1st!

    There’s something magic about 64 stitches on size 1 needles. It seems to fit everyone. Beautiful colors in the Kroy.
