Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

My third pair of socks this year will be a new technique for me. Last night at an impromptu knitting circle, one of the women taught me how to knit with two circular needles.

The plan is to start the toe with two circs, increase to sixty stitches total, then switch to my nine inch circs for the rest of the sock. I’m not sure which heel I will use. I’m thinking I may go with a gusset and German short row heel.

The yarns I intend to use are Knit Picks Stroll, Manos Del Uruguy AlegriaIMG_1365 ( just luscious) and Holda fiber by a local dyer.

The Knit Picks stroll is 75%superwash merino and 25% nylon. The Manos Alegria is 75% superwash merino and 25% polyamide. I no longer have the label for the Holda yarn. I believe it is also 75% superwash merino and 25% nylon

Enjoy the weekend and knit, knit, knit.
