I’m doing a nu ORASH (Operation Replace All Socks with Handmade) sock.
I’ll also hoping to sell them @ Hither Green Week, the end of May. They have a picot cuff & a crochet alpaca tie, also in the cuff.
The heel & toe, is knitted with alpaca yarn.
I’m using a self-striping yarn, I bought from Avicarft Wool Shop in Bromley, some time ago. See last pick for yarn details.
Hot Socks. circus colour by Four Seasons. 75% virgin wool superwash & 25% Polyamide. 100g/420m. Recommended needle size: 2.5mm - 3mm. I’m using 3mm, bamboo double pointed needles. I bought this yarn from Avicraft Wool Shop, in Bromley, Kent. I think it cost between £6-£8, I can’t remember.
I’ve completed the 1st foot, & i’m onto the 2nd foot, so I don’t suffer from 2nd sock syndrome!
What do you think?
