I’m back

Long time no see! June was a stash-busting month and I have lots to show to you. I’ve managed to knit up 2 pairs of socks. Plain one with Schoppel Wolle Admiral yarn. I really like it, as it looks like handspun.
I think I need larger sock blockers, these are size 36 and are way too small…

and then this pair from Knitting Vintage Socks book, Gentleman’s socks with lozenge pattern. I took out 2 pattern repeats to make the man’s sock fit me. The yarn is Lang yarns Jawoll, that is quite wooly, some may say a bit itchy, but each ball contains a little spool of matching reinforcement nylon thread for the heels and toes. How neat! So I am expecting these to last forever 🙂


Plus, I happen to have quite a few colours of this yarn, so I’ll have to make more socks with it.


The internet conection is getting a bit weird, so I guess I’ll divide everything into 2 posts.

  1. They are both perfect! I've never found a good man/sock/blocker. I normally just stretch them to the right size and pin them to the blocking board.

    Thanks again for the birthday skein and lovely fiber club yarns!

  2. Frankly I don't actually block socks 🙂 But sock blockers are useful for picture taking. It has proven difficult to take a decent picture of one's own feet.
