Knitting

Crazy Eights Socks

Just completed! As I was gritting my teeth during the NBA Finals Game 4 last night, I was also finishing up my latest sock design – Crazy Eights!  These are toe-up socks using KnitPicks Essential Kettle-Dyed in ‘Eggplant’ and PageWood Farms in ‘Woodsy’ – I love the combination! The socks were knitted using the Philosopher’s Wool method of Fair Isle knitting so the yarn is not stranded on the inside, rather it’s woven in. I think I’ll try a pair regular Fair Isle to see the difference.
