New Month, New Challenge

I have been asked to knit a pair of mens socks, size 10 UK, and thanks to Knitbert have decided on Father and Son socks from Interweave Fall issue. I have swatched ( in the round ) with the Patons Diploma Gold and the tension appears to be spot on!


I do believe all my friends on the Crafty Threads 'n' Yarns Forum will have to prepare themselves for many many questions - I will be following a chart so watch this space. Hopefully I shall have some progress photos for you soon.

Sadly my Central Park Hoodie is taking somewhat of a back seat at present - I will see how much time I spend on my socks this month and hopefully I can at least get the sleeves of the hoodie knitted too.

That's a lovely pattern. The socks will look great!

Looking forward to seeing more CPH soon too, you picked such a lovely colour for it.
