Blurred Lines NOT!

No I’m not talking about Robin Thicke’s song. I love the song. I’m talking about the Blurred Lines Socks that I cast on yesterday using Dancing Dog Dyeworks Glitter Paws in Tricks or Treats. My online pals were posting pictures of Halloween socks and new Halloween colorways so I decided to cast on my Halloween 2013 socks as a work-in-public project. Also it was my birthday and I thought I should have a knit-whatever-the-heck-you-want day and I wanted to knit socks. I wanted to try out the heel treatment used in the Blurred Lines Socks pattern. So I cast on using US size 1 needles because the pattern used 64 stitches instead of 66 and also would “draw in” so I felt that size 0s would be too small. I finished the toe and started on the pattern and, after one repeat, decided that I wasn’t feeling the love for it. The yarn stripes were purple and black and I couldn’t see the design and felt it was a waste to spend time blurring lines when no one could tell they were blurred.2013-08-18 22.19.09 So I frogged, borrowed a pair of US size 0 needles from the yarn shop and cast on a pair of plain vanillas. I will still use the heel treatment which Megan calls the One needle Mock Gusset (OMG).

Also in Just (k)nits in progress is Ecken+Kanten (Corners and Edges) on 3.0 mm needles and using Kauni 8/2 Effektgarn in EQ colorway. I’ve started the second section and am a bit disappointed at this point in my yarn choice. I think this would look better in Liberty Wool Prints sport weight. 2013-08-18 22.18.31

I finished my Just (k)nits for others project which is a Chubby Chirp in Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted Robot Overlord colorway and bits of Liberty Wool and Cascade 220.2013-08-18 20.10.27 I used US size 5 needles. I buy my eyes from 6060 eyes. I’m planning to cast on another Antler Cardigan but not sure what yarn I’ll use. I think I have some Berroco Vintage that I’d planned to use for another project that I can use for the Antler. If not, I’ll use Cascade Pacific.

I also received a club shipment from Fibernymph Dye Works but will post a picture next post so that the picture won’t be a spoiler.

Till next time, no frogs, no tinks, just (k)nits.
