On The Needles - August 21, 2015

I couldn't quite make up my mind which yarn to use next for my next pair of socks, so I picked a completely different one that I've been wanting to try.  I decided to make a pair of the short footies that someone posted recently (sorry, right now I can't remember who, but I put it on my "to do" list immediately).  They are called Rose City Rollers and it is a free pattern on Ravelry HERE.  I figured they would go quickly and I can wear them before winter in my tennis shoes, Here's how far I got this week.  I have been busy finishing a custom quilt so not much time was spent with my knitting needles. .


They are knitting up pretty quickly with a slight variation in the pattern than I'm used to.  I'm using Panda Superwash yarn which has bamboo, wool and a little nylon.  They feel very soft and cushy.

Check out Patchwork Times to see more lovely knitted items this week.

  1. I always enjoy seeing what you're knitting, especially since I don't make the pretty things you do. The yarn color is beautiful, and that the socks will be soft and cushy too will make this pair even better. Lovely work!
