Sock knitting really hasn’t been my jam lately, but my purse knitting is still a pair of socks. My Retro Rainbow Socks are a few stripes longer now.
I’m knitting these as sock tubes and I will cut in afterthought heels. The yarn is some de-stashed MustStash yarn in Stacie’ Retro Rainbow colorway. I’m working 72 stitches on US 0 needles.
I’m not going many places anymore so I don’t seem to pick these up as often. We largely go to work and then stay home otherwise so I am putting a lot more work on my larger projects. Good thing yarn and knitting doesn’t go bad!
I love those stripes!
I’m doing an afterthought in rainbow socks at the moment too – it’s my first time so fingers crossed 🙂
Love the yarn. I have never knit with self-striping. I want step-by-step photos of when you cut for the heel. The word “cut” in the same sentence as knitting gives me palpitations.
I wouldn’t be able to do a better job that Kirby Wirby. She has a GREAT YouTube video and she’s very fun
I am checking it out.
