New Sockage.

8 Nov

Not one, but two new socks on the needles!

As promised, bright (right) green socks: the yarn is Ms Gusset sock, bought at Bendi in 2010, pattern ‘Purl and Zag*’ by Jeannie Cartmel, which is one of those “just one more repeat” patterns that practically knit themselves.

Also, I needed something to knit in the car on the way to the wedding, so I cast on a very plain* (I can’t look at my hands or I’ll get sick) toe-up in some Jitterbug from my very first Bendi trip in 2008, colourway ‘Morello Mash’, which just happens to match the frock I wore to the wedding. It didn’t get any play on the drive home, as I was feeling a bit seedy (I had a really good time), and thought I’d better not push my luck.

    Nice socks! Love that you cast on two different ones :-)

      Thanks, after brown socks and a black cardi, I’m really enjoying all the colour.

    Love the Purl and Zag socks – they look like fun! Plus I agree with Leonie: why cast on just one when you can double the fun?!?!

      They are – I’ve admired Jeannie Cartmel’s designs for a long while now. She’s regularly in the designer lineup on the Sock Knitter’s Anonymous SOCKDOWN! Challenge, and she does some awesome stuff.

    That green is so gorgeous!!!! Love the zig zag pattern too. I can read and knit and sew etc in the car. Sadly, I am always driving!!!

      The odd thing is, I can read or knit on trains and even buses, just not the car.
