Sock Knitting


Here is the sock that I started. I am using the pattern "Generic Toe Up sock" by Wendy Jonhson. You can find it as a free download in her website www.wendyknits.net. It is in there somewhere. I am using yarn from JOJOLAND it has some cashmere in it and it is varigated in pastel colors. I love it! However, the needles I am using are really slowing me down. I hate them. They are plastic double pointed but the material is very fragil and it bends. I am expecting some new needles that I order and just can wait to switch to wood. I am trying to keep this project for outside and continue working in my Rebecca blouse when I am at home.

Estas son las medias que comenzé. Estoy usando el patrón generico de Wendy que se puede bajar gratis de su website www.wendyknits.net. Este es mi proyecto para afuera de la casa y sigo con la blusa de Rebecca para cuando estoy en la casa. La lana me encanta porque tiene colores pastel y contiene cashmere que es una fibra muy suave y lujosa. Lo que me esta matando son las agujas porque son plásticas y se doblan demasiado. Ya compré otras por el internet y estoy deseando recibirlas para cambiar a agujas de madera.

Yes, I love how the toe part comes out! But I am not getting the right size, maybe because this yarn is fingering weight and not sock weight. I don't know. The gauge is correct but the fabric is very elastic and it looks really big. So I am going to try with less stitches and maybe smaller needles too. Instead of 60 St I am going to do 56 and instead of size 2, I am going to use size 1. I hope that will solve the problem. Take care and thanks for stopping by...
