The Daily Purl


threading the heddles

My favorite part of the process.  These bundles are tied looser than the last time I used this material.  Threading with sticky, slightly stiff threads.  Knowing how to work with them and not against them.  Also reflective of my state as I work.  A bit more comfortable and free (while still maintaining order during set up).






Pink Socks (No. 1)

Yarn: 1 skein of Koigu No. 1150 (and a bit of No. 2390)

Needles: 2.75 mm dpns

French Heel and Round Toe (see Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush)

Bright pink hand knit socks stacked on top of what I think are the cutest pair of shorts in her closet (a gift from her aunt).

I love knitting with Koigu and have a few more new colorful skeins headed my way…. straight to the needles, I think.
