WIP Wednesday: Crazy Sock Knitting

I’ve done kind of a bad job explaining how this pattern works based on some of the comments I’ve received. Beginning at the bottom of the photo the first section is the ribbing of the cuff and the leg of the first sock. The section between the first red line and the second thicker red line is the foot of the first sock. Between the thicker red line and the thin line at the top is the foot of the second sock and the next little bit between the red line and the needles is the start of the leg. The ribbing will be added once the leg is done. Where the thin red lines of waste yarn are heels will be added once the full length of the two socks has been knit. Finally the two socks will be separated at the thick red line (it’s two rows of waste yarn) and that is where the toes will be knit. Hopefully that is a better explanation of the crazy sock knitting.

Have you ever made anything that just seemed crazy? I am drawn to unusual patterns so this is just a stop on the crazy train for me. I’ve knit an array (group) of hedgehogs, an eyelash hat that was striped like a bee and a shawl with beads representing the night sky of the northern hemisphere. Unique patterns are just the norm for me.

    The craziest thing I’ve ever knit was the two socks toe up on two circs at the same time. I know I’ve blogged about it before. It was a PITA but yielded the best socks I’ve ever knit (those footie socks I posted.)

  2. As I alter most patterns, if not make them up entirely, most of what I knit is unique! Right now I’m figuring out how to knit in a sleeve with lots of cables/rib/trees top down, when the pattern thought I’d knit bottom up separate pieces.

    I want to try this technique. It seems to guarantee that the socks will match.

    The craziest construction I’ve knit was a long cardigan from a Knitty.com pattern. Diagonal, vertical, horizontal knitting all came together.

    I’ve not knit anything very crazy I guess, though some people have thought me crazy for attempting to knit what I did! The socks are looking good!

  7. I think that is a very cool construction method – will be interested to hear how they wind up fitting!
