First pair of self-striping socks (WIP)
Starting a new pair of socks. It'll be my second pair ever.

Paton's Kroy Socks, Stripes, Cyan Stripes.

UPDATE: I've finished both socks! They look exactly alike, even. They're a teeny bit big for me, but otherwise they came out good.

Ribbing the cuff:


(Yes, I do knit on the round with four DPNs in the work, using the 5th to knit with when I can. It feels more comfortable to my hands.)

Just after finishing the heel and getting into the instep:


Starting to shape the toe:


And sock #1 is finished!

@ Doublereeder2

Yeah, it's a good thing I like wooden needles, too (especially bamboo. I love them!). Otherwise, I'd forever be needing to buy extra packs of DPNs, since they don't expect you'll break one ever, but wooden DPNs always come with a 5th needle.

Do you play the oboe or something like that?

self-striping sock
Very pretty yarn and you're doing a great job. it will be interesting to see if the second sock is identical. i find when i knit, the second sock is usually different! but that's ok. linknit41
