    April 2020 Sock KAL - Finished socks only please!

    April 2020 Finished Socks Only Please

    Here is the finished thread for our April 2020 KAL.

    As always you may choose any pattern and amend for size and preferences. You may also multi-dip with other make alongs, as long as that organizer is good with it.

    Please post an entry (use the "post reply" button) for the following (Featured patterns, etc can be found in the chatter thread):
    • first finished sock (or two through the heels)
    • pair finished
    • featured pattern
    • featured theme
    • Festured color
    LizB is donating one of her hand dyed skeins of yarn - please support our sponsor and her Etsy shop!

    Please remember - new posts (using the "post reply" button) are for finished sock entries only - oohs, ash’s, and Thank you’s should be posted as comments (press the three dots at the bottom right hand side of the post) not as new posts. This makes it easier on me at the end of the month to draw a random number winner! Even one sock finished has a chance to win, so be sure to post pictures and knit socks!
    Knitting is happening here! ❤️

            Two socks done through the heel. I just did the feet plain Jane but I think I'll do something a little frilly for the ankles. The yarn is just Premier Serenity sock in color Chili, it had just a tiny bit of blue mixed in there

              Thanks, I started the legs in a crocodile stitch that I think looks more like flower petals so may be they will look a little more spring like when done.

            Just finished you're last night. I decided to just do shorties given the time of year and the person I plan to give them to.

              Rose the Rebel - yay! a crazy sock free for all! Yes, I was heavily involved with Sock madness. We'll have to do a May Madness

              knitter131 - clown barf yarn - it is the highly technical term for yarn that when it is knit it appears a clown could have barfed it out. Very bright, rainbow-y and funky!

            I finished these last week, started on my flight to Australia - chose green in support of Green Socks everywhere and used a plain old vanilla pattern that I've used a gazillion times (because knitting on a 24 hr flight requires minimal thinking and great forgiveness for the odd sleep knitting stretch!). Socks (pictured unblocked) got snaffled by self sufficient son and are now down in the bush where he is isolating with his family (good camouflage LOL)

            My modified Fairy Dancer. I frogged the first sock because even the small size was too big. This is 60 stitches cast on. I eliminated 4 stitches on each side of the pattern. I like it better this way.

                lovestostitch maybe I would have finished them, except I'm doing some charity work for a while.
