Hi everyone, here is the Jardin Prive sheep design finished into a project bag, I think I will be making many of these in various sizes!
My first pair of socks
Recently I have been watching knitting videos on You Tube and was intrigued that sock knitting was the thing that everyone seemed to be doing, there were so many gorgeous designs of socks I thought I would give them a try. I have never knit socks before so I needed to buy the needles and yarn to get started, I chose the yarn and found a tutorial on the internet, but I really struggled, I must have pulled them back about five times! I chose to knit them on circular needles, which I have never used before, but once I got started I did manage to finish one sock.
I am happy to say I don’t suffer from second sock syndrome, apparently many people only knit one sock and never knit the second one! Lol…. I was excited to start the second sock so that I could knit another pair soon. If you have never tried to knit socks, why not have a go? Trust me, it is addictive! Lol….
Edited: You can now see my finished socks in this post here
Project bag for socks
Until now I have just used a plastic bag to store my projects, however, after seeing all of the gorgeous project bags on line I decided to finish the Jardin Prive sheep design into a sock knitting project bag. I made it into a tall, narrow bag which fits 2 x 50g balls of yarn and the needles to make a pair of socks, I made a little pocket on the inside to store the needles.
I can see myself making lots of project bags for myself and for gifts as I love making them.
I cross stitched the love heart onto Mill Hill perforated paper.
This is the start of my first sock
This is the second sock, I have just pulled it back again! Lol….
Hopefully will finish it this next week!
This is the yarn I used, it was not very expensive, but for my first pair of socks I thought it was best to buy a cheaper yarn.
I decided to start a mitred square sock blanket using the spare yarn, I had no clue how to do this, but again I followed a You Tube video from one of my favourite knitting websites,
Until next time, happy stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
