>I think it’s about time I used up all the odd balls of 3 ply that I have so I’ve decided to make a few pairs of socks.
This afternoon I made a dark green pair which I can’t show you at the moment as I accidently deleted the photo. They’re nothing exciting, just a pair of dark green ankle sock, so you haven’t missed much.
I made them on the Knitmaster 4500, they are knitted flat. I did the seam as you go method so the only bit of sewing up I need to do is the back ankle seam.
Even though I prefer ankle socks, I think I’ll make the next pair a little longer. They might not all be matching pairs – I might not have enough of each colour to make them identical but who cares, nobody will see them and even if they do it will just confirm to them that I’m not quite a full shilling. I’m not bothered about wearing odd socks as long as my feet are warm.
I will take some more photos when I’ve knitted them and this time I’ll try not to delete them before I’ve uploaded them.
Talk to you later,
