Weekend Knitting

So for today's post I thought I would post about my weekend knitting. I actually have two projects in my bag and that's unusual for me. I always just concentrate on one pair of socks at a time and then when I just have to sew in ends I will cast on for another pair.
Weekend Knitting
I don't have that far to go with the orange socks which were my current work in progress and I started the purple ones to guide beginner sock knitters with. The purple ones are going to be a bit slow as I'm posting each step for beginner knitters to follow along. With the orange socks I'm almost at the gusset and once I'm there I always think I'm on the homeward stretch.
Picking up stitches
I'm going to concentrate on these orange ones and hopefully get them done, if not by the end of the weekend then hopefully by Monday.

I had a nice comment by a lady when I posted about these socks before saying when she knits socks with bright colours she likes to knit stripes to break up the colour. This gave me some food for thought and if I hadn't been so far ahead with these I would have considered it. I had some navy and I like orange and navy together. My thinking was I would knit the legs in orange and then mix up the feet with missed matched stripes of varying width of stripes and different coloured heels. I got quite excited about it but then realised that I had already knitted it's mate:-(

This is the great thing about learning how to knit socks as you can make them any colours you like and if you really start to get into it, you will end up with lots of leftover yarn. And then if you are making them for family you can make stripy socks using up the leftovers.

So anyway lets see how I go this weekend, here's hoping I get them finished. Have a great weekend.

Enjoy your weekend knitting
