Work-in-Progress Wednesday


All of a sudden I cast on a sock. Well, it's Socktoberfest, so why not? After all I can't show you my secret Christmas knitting, can I? And I suspect you may be nearly as sick of the second glove I have on the needles as I am. So a new sock project is definitely in order.

The pattern is Juta's Stockings. It's little more than a vanilla sock with a narrow column of very simple lace on each side of the leg. I'm knitting it with Sydney Sock from Studio June Yarn and I'm loving it so far. The yarn is entirely smooth so stitch definition is perfect. Very satisfying for a vanilla sock.

And that's all I've got today, but of course, you can get your fill of yarn projects through the links at Tami's Amis. Have a great Work-in-Progress Wednesday!

I refuse to knit socks for Socktober. I have to take a sock break but all of these gorgeous socks are feeding the sock craving.
