When you are away from home you need a traveling knitting project. I didn’t have any small portable project so I started some socks. They are actually house socks, or slipper socks. My plan is to sew leather soles onto them. First, knitting!
OK, it’s not a great photo. This is not an official FO blog post, so I have time for better photos of the finished slippers. I just wanted to try to show the first one – it’s done!
The second one is already more than half finished. It knits up super fast with worsted weight yarn and the fabric is thick and sturdy since it’s knit on size 3mm/3US needles.
The yarn is Madelinetosh 80/10/10 Worsted in color Edison Bulb. And it is bright! It kind of blows out the sensor on my camera. This was definitely an advantage when knitting on a dimly knit plane when others are sleeping or watching movies. 🙂
The pattern is Foxwood, from the Twist Collective web site. It’s a very well written pattern, with charts for the cabled patterns, and 4 sizes to choose from. Mine are the smallest size. More photos next weekend!
