That’s right, I’m making more socks!
I’m making some yummy soft bed socks using another (I know, right. I can hardly keep up!) new yarn from Scheepjes.
Let me tell you a bit about the yarn; Eliza comes in 36 shades, and 9 of those are gradient yarns. It’s a 100% polyester yarn and is suitable for a 5mm hook. I’m using 3.75mm needles for my socks as larger needles were much too big. It’s lovely and soft, and as well as bed socks I think it would be a great yarn for crocheting or knitting soft toys, or a snuggly cowl.
I’m using – you guessed it – Turquoise Gem (222).
To make the socks, I’m using the brilliant tutorials from my fab friend Sarah at Crafts From the Cwtch. Sarah has created a load of amazing tutorials and they, along with a few frantic texts, have totally taught me to knit socks!
I’m knitting two at a time toe up socks, and will use the afterthought heel method, and Sarah has tutorials for all of them, see below!
