    May 2020 Sock KAL - Finished Socks Only Please!

    Here is our thread for our May 2020 Finished Socks Only

    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 theme - Wacky Socks
    • Festured color - Clown barf (so bright and colorful a clown must have regurgitated)
    knitter131 is donating a skein of sock yarn - Thank you knitter131 - I'll get a picture here soon...

    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!

    Two finished through the heel, I am using the Mani Pedi yarn that I won in a drawing last month and donated by Char. I really like the yarn it has great negative ease but I'm not sure if it can count In the clown barf color category. Now to figure out the legs, I only plan to make them ankle socks.

    Finished through the heel. Not exactly wacky and definitely no clown barf. I don't really have any stash that fits that term anymore, though I used to. I'm still trying to decide if I'll attempt an actual wacky pair.

    Well, I've knitted two socks but I frogged the first one and have to do it again. I thought I was keeping an eye on the amount I used of both colors but I was off. The first sock was also a bit loose and I thought the gauge was too loose. I knit the second sock on smaller needles. Now I have to reknit the first sock.

      I feel your pain and have been there before. That's when I decided to learn magic loop and knit socks 2 at a time. Now they are mostly identical. I really like the colors in your yarn though 🙂

      I do use Magic Loop but I don't do two at a time because I have a sensitive nerve on one foot that doesn't like tight socks. I use my first sock as a test. If it's snug, it goes on the left foot. If it's loose, it goes on the right. On the second sock, I make the necessary adjustments. I was really surprised the first sock had such loose looking stitches. The yarn must be on the thinner side of fingering.

    Just finished my hairy leg socks. , those hairs take a bit of time. I don't think I would try making these as live highs 😱

      Oh that's cool, now my socks are anonomously famous 🤗 Char, if you look at post 13.5 on the May chatter thread, I explained how I did the hairs.

      Too funny FreedomLover! As an afterthought it came to me that I could have used some of that furry craft yarn instead of making the stubble stitch which was pretty time consuming.

    Finished my wacky pair. Great for little summer shorties. I'll probably be making several similar pair in the coming weeks.

      That's the link to the original pattern. It is cuff down with a heel flap and she makes them even shorter than mine. Almost no-show style. Really cute and well written.

        I redid the first sock to make it smaller and tighter gauge. I also remeasured the yarn trying to get them to turn out the same. What I learned is that my digital scale doesn't go to small enough increments so I still didn't get it equally divided and I had to switch to solid green before I really wanted to.

        This post will count as my wacky post.
