#AnySockKAL

LBHandknits

As a cranky old do-my-own-thang knitter resistant to knit-alongs, I have finally succumbed! Last weekend, Bernie of Bear in Sheep's Clothing and Emma of Woolly Mammoth Fibres announced #anysockkal.

As the name subtly hints at, this is a knit-along for socks. Any socks! You are not obliged to use a specific yarn or pattern. Just knit socks and post snaps on instagram. Timeline-wise, this knit-along is pretty open. Every week they choose a captivating snap, and winners gets prizes. I donated a pattern to the prize pool and do not qualify for the weekly sweepstakes. But I am taking part anyway. And because both Bernie and Emma are using my Folksy sock pattern for their #anysockkal knitting, I am returning the 'shout-out' as it were by knitting a pair of socks with each of their yarns.

For the first pair, I am using Bear in Sheep's Clothing BFL/nylon sick yarn in the Killadoon colourway to knit some Sleeping in the Garden socks. (One sock is done, and shown in the top photo!)

For the second pair, I am using some Woolly Mammoth fingering/sportweight handspun, and designing a pattern specific to this yarn.

I think this one will be quite simple and minimalist, but I am still in the playing-with-it stage so we'll see! 

So those are my two #anysockkal projects at the moment.

Meanwhile, Emma is making good leeway on her Folksy socks.
