Sorry for the Artistic Picture

Gram Rock Socks

Yeah, I know. It's just blurred.

Anyway, this is my third project for Summer of Socks 2007.
Yarn is SocksThatRocks GramRock colourway. This pink and rose (and yellow) colourway is usually not mine. I like blues, greens and purples.
But, you know what? This colourway really makes me happy. It's just fun to knit with this yarn. Ah, pink, what a lovely colour it is! And yellow, what a lively colour it is!

I've tried several patterns before I started knitting a sock. None was for this yarn. At least I thought so.
So, I just pick a rib patten. It's a kind of garter rib pattern, K5 P1 for odd rows and K every stitch for even rows. This simple pattern goes very well with the yarn. I'm pleased.

This is my first time using the Channel Island Cast on. It's a fabulous cast on method! It's very stretchy, and very sturdy, and also, looks so nice. I'm sure I'll use this method again.

BTW, I leave for the office 10 to eight, and get home around midnight every day during weekday. I go to work at least a day on weekends. I don't have much time to knit, really.
Still, I try to find time to knit with all my might :-)
After all, it's fun to knit and knitting makes me happy.

  • I'm concluding with the fact that I love the socks you make :)
    The color surprised me, not what I expected of you at all, but it's a pretty one, completely getting why it makes you happy :D

  • Cecilie, thank you very much for your kind comment and I'm so sorry my reply is this late.
    I've been worn out recently, but your comment makes me really happy!
