More Socks!

More socks! Whatever has happened to me? This is another pair for Mr A and he chose the yarn himself while I was rummaging through my couple of stashed skeins of sock yarn ;-)

I bought the yarn last year when I visited the I Knit Shop, it is from the Kaffe Fasset Design Line range and the colourway is Landscape Fog. Mr A has size 10 feet, and I only had 2 marble sized balls of yarn left over, so if you want a larger pair out of two balls it might be an idea to knit a shorter cuff than the 20cm I knitted.

This is the first time I have used Regia yarn, and I really like the way it has knitted up. I have also used two circular needles as opposed to my usual dpns, and I think this will soon become my preferred method.

I do love the Kaffe Fassett regia range - it washes (in the machine) really well too - mine even sometimes accidentally make it into the tumble dryer and survive! The colours are fabulous. Well done on making man socks - a 20cm cuff - you have more patience than me! Have you tried magic loop yet with one long circular? I tried it ages ago and couldn't get on with it - then I bought some knitpicks needles with their bendy cables and love it now. I'll try to remember to bring them with me when I see you!

I've knitted a pair in that same colourway - and I was impressed too. And I never looked back after discovering socks on circs - I can't imagine ever using dpns again.
