I thought I would document my first foray into knitting gorgeous socks that I am actually really quite pleased with!
So at the end of December, I joined a mkal with the Maria Rosa Knits Away group on Ravelry.  There were going to be 4 clues released every Wednesday through January.

My yarn was a super soft cash sock from Mellifera yarn in Rain.
I have never tried taat socks and I was a little confused by the idea of doing them with 2 long circular needles, so I decided to buy five more Dpn's in size 2mm and use those as I was familiar with them.
Toes went well and fast!!  Looking at the other posts I soon realised how the two circular needles worked - so next time...

The foot section slowed me down a little, but doing taat was definitely speedier than one at a time.

The heel was a fleegle heel, which I had never tried before.  Loved it - it looked a little odd on the needles, but having tried them on now they feel lovely and fit perfectly.

The leg section seemed to be never ending but then all of a sudden it came together and they were done.  I love them - they fit, they are soft and they are a lovely colour.
So there you go - first completed project to reduce my stash (of patterns - I had signed up before Christmas and yarn)

Next project to reduce the stash was going to be See You There - but think I may go for Samantha

  1. They are lovely. Just perfect!

  2. I love them - gorgeous pattern and lovely colour. Isn't it great to finish something?!

  3. I love your socks! It sounds like you enjoyed making this pattern. I'm starting a sock knit along for beginners. Knitting socks is one of my favorite. Have a great day :)

  4. Great looking socks! I hope to try making TAAT socks this spring myself; wish me luck :)

  5. That is a fabulous pattern. I wish I could do toe-up but I can't get the hang of it!

  6. Yay! You go on this success. I'd do the DPN way too.
