As you know I like challenging myself when it comes to my knitting. So when I saw this knit along by Ruth Garcia-Alcantud of Rock + Purl a few months ago, I signed up straight away. Sadly, I didn’t get involved in the knit along at the time, but I’m doing it now – better late than never eh?!

So I’ve finally started, using some lovely sock yarn that I won on Twitter from Pip at the Sock Yarn Shop. I’m half way through week 2 so thought that I could update you with my progress. I’m hoping to finish my Spud & Chloe jumper soon too, as I don’t like having more than one project on the go at a time. It’s quite tricky as I have to knit with 5 double pointed needles and I’ve learnt how to make a new stitch right and left! I’m really enjoying it and hope to knit them well enough so that I can give them as a gift! Check back for updates on these new socks! x
