Nest Step Sock KAL.....my finished Crenate socks.



I'm back today, to show you my finished pair of socks for the Next Step Sock KAL over on Ravelry, it didn't start off to well, after having to frog the first pattern, I started.

After looking through my magazines for another pattern, I chose the Crenate socks by Rachel Coopey which I thought were ideal for a newbie sock knitters, like myself, as it didn't look too complicated. It still took me to the next step with sock knitting though as I'd only done stocking stitch before and these had a pretty lace pattern.

I used The Natural Dye Company Dazzle Sock, that I had from the December YOTM club, they are so soft and comfy to wear on these cold days, I can see why people love to wear hand knitted socks, I'll be definitely starting another pair soon, I didn't realise how many different methods there were for knitting socks. I think I may have to invest in a book, I'd appreciate any suggestions for a good, simple to follow book with different techniques and patterns.


There are a few people who have finished their first pair so check them out over on Sarah's blog, Crafts from the Cwtch.


Back soon

They're so nice and feminine, I love them! The book that got me started on socks was Sensational Knitted Socks, by Charlotte something. Sorry, I can't remember her last name. I want to say Schuh but I don't know... Toe up, top down. All patterns are written for 2circs, 3dpns and 4dpns and to suit a range of tensions. I used it so much that mine is battered!
