I’m knitting Christmas presents again, after years away. I think I stopped because I wore some of my own socks and realised I’d been making them too big. Burst my bubble for a bit. All those socks given as presents and mostly too big. Oh well.
I’ve forgotten the yarn I’m using in the striped ones. The pink and purple ones are in Poems Sock Yarn by Wisdom Yarns. The pale blue is going to be a beanie for me because I haven’t knitted one before. It’s in a very beautiful yarn called Sublime by Sirdar which is merino, silk and cashmere. The pattern is Sitka Spruce, adapted for DK yarn by Tin Can Knits. The basque is a twisted rib stitch which is very nice.
