Back To Cranking
It didn’t take much. A post in a sock machine forum about a new sock pattern. And just like that, I was back to cranking.
What Brought Me Back to Cranking?
Someone posted this Circular Sock Machine pattern in a Facebook forum and I had to try it on my machine.
And thanks to a beautifully-striping sock yarn from Urth Yarns (Uneek Sock), I created the first CSM sock in a while.
This is colorway 53 with a contrasting heel and toe yarn that clashes in the most perfect way. At least in my opinion.
I have started the second sock and even with the lacy ankle of the sock, I will enjoy wearing these socks a lot. I will probably order some more of the Uneek Sock just for this pattern.
Current (Other) Knitting
I was able to add a couple of repeats to the lace-weight Primordial Sworls Wrap.
As with most knitted lace, it will block out much better. So progress photos won’t always show it off very well.
I did do a light steam blocking on a section to verify.
Not as good as the color version. But it will make a very nice light-weight shawl when it’s finished.
