    February 2021 Sock KAL - Chat

    Our theme for February is Love. Love can be hearts or it can be doing a pattern that your loved one especially appreciates. Tell us how your pattern says Love๐Ÿ’•!

    Color of the month is Pink.

    As always, you can knit any pattern or color you like but you get an extra entry in the prize drawing for using a pattern that goes with the theme and/or using the monthly color.

    Chat about the KAL in this thread and post your finished projects in the Finished Thread.

    I got this for Christmas and saved it for this month. Now I have to pick out a pattern that says "Love!"

ID:	88761All ready to start! The sock pattern has hearts on it and one ball of yarn is pink-ish. It's more of a light plum, but I think it'll work. The two yarns aren't very different in value, so the hearts will be very soft, not dramatic. I think I'll do the hearts at the toe, but I want to do something different at the top. I don't know what yet ... time will tell!

      Did you try the actual pattern and not like it?

      I just prefer toe up and using the toe, heel and cuff that I know work for me.

      Yes, I remember. This pair inspired me to find the pattern. I'm not going to make the cuff top it calls for either, I did that on one pair and I'm not very fond of it. I'm thinking of a heart-shaped lace to knit down the top of each sock, stopping at the hearts on the toes. Maybe.

    Oops! I'd put this on the wrong thread. My bad. My very, very bad. But here is my first sock in the making. I thought the pink and brown were close enough in value that they'd blend together more, but they don't! These will satisfy the challenge color: PINK!

      KnitsWithHorses, the skein you're getting has both of these wools in its blend, so I'm glad you like it!

      Awesome!! I am not one to wear straight pink but you pair it with brown or green or both and I'm there for it!

    I've been meaning to join the sock-a-long fun since November, but just didn't have time. I've decided that I WANT to make my first pair of adult-sized socks (I've made one pair of baby socks, but that's the extent of my sock-making experience) and I found some yarn I just love, so I am getting to it! I'm making these chunky socks using this gorgeous pink and cream Hygge yarn my daughter-in-law gave me. So here is my getting started picture!

      Hygge would feel like a cloud on your feet! I'm wishing I had made some thick and warm house socks since the floor in here is SO COLD right now. We are in for over a week of stupid cold weather so I'll be wearing socks 24/7 for a while. Lol I have a bunch of Hygge and it never occurred to me to make socks!

      Thanks, everyone, I'm looking forward to it! Once I get my February socks done, I plan to actually use the yarn I bought for January for the window one because I found the perfect yarn for that one!

      KnitsWithHorses When my dil gave me this yarn I KNEW I wanted to make socks with it because it is SO soft! I found a few patterns for socks specifically with Hygge, so I figured it was acceptable to make socks from. The pattern I'm using isn't a specific Hygge pattern, but the gauge is right, so I'm trying it!

    These are my January Socks, still in progress....sigh. I decided that a pattern might be a nice change, so I found this simple herringbone stitch.

    PS: How do you all feel about drawstring project bags? Do you prefer additional handles?

      Love the bag! Drawstring works for me, but I like handles too. I guess I'm officially not picky.

      I love the bag! I'm a big fan of the drawstring and using the drawstrings as the straps.

    I finished my other project and started my February socks today. This is my first time knitting with Regia's Tutti Frutti cotton sock yarn.
