Jewel Tones Socks

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I finished them without a formal pattern after my sister told me how to start them (we live states apart). Through the internet on Magic Loop and my own head-scratching, I was able to figure it out and ended up with a whole pair of socks! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Socks are strangely addicting, so don't start! The magic of magic loop, the magic of self-striping yarn: mesmerizing...

What you will need

  • Unknown sock yarn (sorry!)
  • and #2 - 40 inch circular needle for Magic Loop.

Q&A with MargotKnits

These look really gorgeous and to complete without a formal pattern is quite an accomplishment..
MargotKnits answered:
Thanks, junebug! I can read those patterns, I can even understand them, but translating them to actual knitting seems tricky for me. Becoming a handspinner and relying on my instincts to adapt patterns has given me confidence.
