knitted things

Two pairs of socks and an almost done Tubey!

Henry’s bamboo socks:
henrysocks
Yarn: Regia 45% bamboo, 40% wool, 15% nylon
Needles: 2.0mm brittany birch
Worked on 56 st in k4,p4 ribbing
Toe-up, starting with Judy’s Cast-on
Henry LOVES his bamboo socks. They’re light and comfy, and he can tell everyone that his socks are made of bamboo. I would choose this yarn again in an instant if anyone around here carried it!

My Marra socks:
karasocks
Marra 70% merino 30% baby alpaca — very felty, wash by hand only!
Needles: 2.75mm brittany birch
Worked on 36 stitches (really — I have very thin feet and I hate baggy socks)
Toe-up, starting with Judy’s Cast-on. Near the top of the leg I increased 4 stitches evenly around one round. I like this method of leg increasing (rather than doing increases up the back of the leg over several rounds). Also used a nice jogless join up the back of the leg.

Tubey progress:

Nearly done! Just need to decide on sleeve length and stripes (or not).
