2nd Pair of Sock Begins :)

2nd Pair of Socks started Ok, I am officially addicted to knitting socks.  Couldn’t wait to begin this 2nd pair.  The young one that wanted them is excited that I have started them.  This colorway is really nice, the pop of color makes it interesting to knit.  I am using the ChaiGoo 9″ circular, size 1 – 2.25mm.  They are nice to knit with and the points are a little more “pointy” than the Addi, and makes it (for me) a little nicer getting the thinner yarn off the needle (I’m not a thrower, I am a picker) but I do like both needles.  I am using the same sock pattern I got from The Fiber Pusher  but making a change in the needles size and doing a 2×2 rib for 2 inches instead of a 1×1 rib for 1 inch.   This is her personal pattern for teaching sock knitting so I can not share the pattern, but any vanilla pattern would work. This is a cuff down pattern, as I get a handle on knitting socks I may try a toe up :).  This yarn is beautiful, it’s hand dyed by The Lemonade Shop, colorway Bad Day.
