No Name Socks

nonamesox-011

I have been racking my brain to come up with a name for these socks.  I always have fun naming my different projects, but I am totally drawing a blank.  First I thought of calling them peanut butter and jelly… NO there is no pink jelly and its not the color of peanut butter.  Then I thought hmm… Striking Stripes?… no… Sassy Stripes?…no. I finally gave up and just called them No Name Socks.

The yarn is Patons Kroy Sock Yarn. I was a little disappointed at the amount of yarn. I’m so used to KNit Picks spoiling me with 244 yards a skein, these skeins only have 166. I was very surprised at how wide the stripes knit up though. I was expecting thin stripes, but was pleasantly surprised to see these large stripes (my favorite) Of course I’m knitting 2 at a time on circulars  using magic loop (once I learned this I took a vow never to use DPNs ever again).

Have you ever had the problem while your knitting that your neck gets cold? Not me!

It’s the new and improved knitting neckwarmer! Yes, it is my Sophie. It never fails that when I sit down to start to knit, she crawls up on my shoulder. It’s her favorite spot. I must admit that she sometimes maybe possibly does it in the car. I know it’s a horrible habit, but she’s so warm and cozy and she makes cute little puppy noises. I’m just imagining what’s gonna happen when she ways 7 lbs (if she even makes it to that weight). Oh well, I love it  for now 🙂
