Twisted Stitch socks

Kerry's picture

This is the third or fourth pair of this pattern I've knitted, it is simple to memorise and easy enough to knit at the regular pub knitting group I meet up with. It is from The Knitting Man(ual), wool/nylon 80/20 yarn is from Vintage Grrl, and the needles are Knitpicks dpns 2.5mm.

Nice socks. Similar to a pattern I recently did for a raffle prize. Much bigger yarn and needles, or else I'd still be trying to get them finished. ;-) -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Nice job. How long did it

Nice job. How long did it take to do? I've started a pair of socks 2.5 mm dpns, just wondering how long it will take me in hours. I shouldn't have been surprised at how long it takes me, I thought small project not long, but 2.5 mm needles means many little stitches.
Great job. I've gone for a plain pattern... when I've conquored it I'll do something patterened. Well done.

I never time them in hours,

I never time them in hours, I usually have a pair of socks on the go just to knit at the pub for 'mindless' knitting. You'll be surprised how quickly they'll knit up.
