Yarn Along

Knitting: nothing new under the Belgium sun: working on my March's pair of socks for the Monthly Sock Challenge. Pattern: Petty Harbour by Rayna Curtis Fegan. Yarn: Regia Design Line.

Drawing: still working on the Wall of Fame project. Johnny Cash slowly getting more depth. I'm not really satisfied, but I'll finish it anyway to get back into my drawing mojo.

Also, the heavily sock knittng for the past months has bend my bamboo sock knitting needles, and today one actually broke while I was trying to get it straight again. Oops!

Joining Ginny and Nicole.

  1. Love the colours of that sock yarn! So earthy and wintry!
    (As for the bamboo needles - poor you! Hope it doesn't hold you back too long! I tend to keep my bamboo dpn only for when I take a flight so they pass in my hand luggage. I'm not a delicate knitter and they tend to break otherwise!)

    1. Luckily I have another set of 5 sock needles (which I usually use to start the second sock before finishing the first to avoid second sock syndrome). I only knit on 4 dpn's, so I had one left too of my first set.

  3. Oh no! I hold my needles so tightly when knitting socks that I now only use my favorite bamboo needles for very special socks. I love the colors in your finished sock, and hope you've gotten a replacement needle to make it a friend!

    1. Thanks! Well I have two sets of 5 dpn's and I only knit on 4 when knitting socks, so luckily I could keep on knitting. Now I come to think about it, I also have a set of long 2.5 mm metal dpn's laying around, it's where I knit my first pair of socks with, can you believe that?! :)

  7. Oh blimey about the sock needle. I tend to only use metal ones, and my Karbonz are by far my most used. When I use my bamboo ones occasionally, I'm always so afraid they will snap. Sock knitting can be aggressive at times ;)

  8. Oh no, the poor needle! I am always in fear of my sock needles breaking, I have a set of wooden ones that are lovely but pretty soft. Gorgeous drawing (as always)!
