Winter Project ~ December


It is that time of year, when cosying up on the sofa with yarn and needles is the perfect activity for increasingly frosty days. The cream-coloured socks were a request from Emily, and will be added to her Christmas stocking in a few weeks. I can’t believe that time is creeping up already! I thought I would still be knitting them at the last minute, but because they’re made of a thicker wool they were a lot quicker to knit up than I anticipated.

I do enjoy knitting socks. I like using the double-pointed needles. I like that you can watch them forming completely before your eyes as you knit, with no fussy making-up to do afterwards. I’ve already started on this bright multi-coloured self-striping pair… this time for myself.

I am linking this post with Jenny from Thistlebear, who is hosting a Winter Project Link Party. Do pop along to her blogย to see her beautiful rainbow ย of crochet butterflies, and maybe join in too.

    1. Thank you Simone, I always have cold fingers and toes and usually wear double layers of socks in the winter so I’m looking forward to wearing these.


  1. Good luck with your socks Karen. I have to knit socks well in advance of Christmas or I’d never finish them. These’ll be finished just in time at my slow pace ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. I like knitting socks, too. It is quite amazing how a sock just falls of your needles without much fuss. Love your self striping yarn, I rarely use this kind of yarn because I can’t imagine what it is going to look like knitted up.

    1. A shop near us often has pieces of the self-striping knitted up so you can see the pattern before you buy, but if not I quite enjoy the surprise ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. This might make me sound a bit bonkers but I’ve got to share. When this page loaded up I could just see the toes and a bit of foot on your cream socks and they looked just like bunny ears! I was really surprised to see socks when I scrolled down. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the multi coloured yarn have, The socks will be great when they’re finished.
