Those Darn Socks

 Hi Everyone! Hope the start of July is treating everyone well.I took a little break from quilting to help make a store sample for The Cloth Castle. I have been working on knitting some socks for the shop. I did socks from the toe up. I used the magic cast on method so there is no seem at the toes. I also used a heavier weight yarn for them. These socks are usually done 2 at a time on circular needles. I only did one as with the thicker yarn I was not sure how it was going to work. Here is the first done sock. One more to go.

  1. Hmm-who is the model? You knit too-what don't you do Rogue?

  2. Love your sock. Is the pattern available for purchase?
    Happy Birthday tomorrow too.

  3. Hi Kathleen,
    I can send you the pattern for the socks in on

    search Judy's magic cast on (youtube is great for the demos) and the patterns are anything that are socks from the toe up.
