    April 2021 Sock KAL - Finished Posts Only - No Chat

    This thread is for your finished socks. Posts should be finished socks only but you may give compliments as Comments below the post. We do this to make it easier to pick a winner with a random number generator. Please feel free to chat away in our Sock KAL Chat thread.

    We have a prize drawing at the end of each month. The prize winner is selected by random number generator and each entry is a chance to win the prize. You are eligible for up to four entries. Please make a seperate post for each entry. You may post the following entries:
    1. Picture of the first finished sock (or two through the heels). Any socks started this month count.
    2. Picture of a completed pair. Any socks completed this month count. Socks started before the beginning of the month may be finished and entered as a completed pair.
    3. Picture of a finished pair that uses a pattern that goes with the monthly theme. Please include the name of your pattern and how it coordinates with the theme.
    4. Picture of a finished pair that uses the featured color. In this post, include a picture of your scraps before you start your socks.
    Monthly theme: Helical Knitting
    This month is a chance to learn something new. We will be discovering helical knitting to create blended socks using yarn scraps.

    Here is a link for a technique using three different skeins: https://jingersnaps.wordpress.com/20...per-mathy-hat/

    Color: Scraps of any color. Use up bits and pieces of yarn you have left over from other projects.

    This month's prize is an Original PurlgirlButtons Sock-it! Bag, donated by PurlgirlButtons. The bag is 100% cotton tie dyed by PurlGirlButtons with Dharma wash fast fiber reactive dyes. Dimensions of the bag are 9" H x 9"W at top x 4" deep and it comes with a small carabiner clip. Thank you PurlGirlButtons for donating such a beautiful project bag.

    First pair of leftovers socks finished through the heel, counts as one sock. I started these on April 1st. Third color will be on the leg and cuff. The first color pooled really bad, but what the heck - they’re going to be funky anyway 😊😊

      You should try Helical. I love the way it blends colors.

      Thanks, Spice2s 😊. lovestostitch, I did try it, but it didn’t even show up on the first yarn, and because of the colors it pooled even worse. My next pair will be helical.

      Beautiful socks! Do you go toe up or cuff down? I'm always curious.

      KnitsWithHorses These are cuff down, as that is the way the pattern is written for round two of #SockSanity2021, but I normally do toe up. I can do both, but prefer toe up.

    My Leftovers socks are finished, and pretty funky looking. But they fit well and are comfy, so I’m happy to have a pair to wear around the house. Used three balls, I still have some of the gold left for another pair.

        Finished Scrappy Helical Aquarium Socks. The flecks of color in the tweed MC yarn reminded me of Aquarium Gravel.
        Toe-up, with a short-row heel, knitted helically using the clasped weft join when changing contrast color. 68 grams on US #1 ,2.5mm. circular needles.

          They turned out great. I'm still not done. I kept falling asleep and messing up my toe decreases.

              Oh I don't think I've seen that colorway before... or maybe I have, who knows these days. The brain fog is real y'all. Anyway, I really like it!

              Great job matching these!

            Finished my son's birthday socks last night. Good grief why couldn't my kids have smaller feet! (Nothing to do with my 10wides or hubby's size 15s, I'm sure...)
            My next pair will be very close to the same size but for my daughter. The nice part is that after making Cameron, Harmoni and Rob socks, mine feel positively quick to knit!

            Another for theme. I use the technique like in the video from VeryPinkKnits. That's not who I learned it from but I can't find that one and it's the same technique. And, of course, VPK does a great job of explaining it. Don't judge it by these socks though. I was watching a lot of TV while knitting these and several times failed to pick up the new color while going around. I almost wish I was still on the pain needs so I could blame it on that! 😂
