WIP: Torrent Socks

Thought I'd give a proper update on one of the Blue Period projects I alluded to before.

(They're blue, but not THIS blue. Photo colour does not correspond to real life.)

My Torrent socks are proceeding apace. Given how many projects I have on the go, I'm actually surprised by how quickly these are going. Nearly at the heels! The back of the ankle is all stockinette; I think this helps with the speed as well as making them very enjoyable to knit. I get bored easily with all-stockinette projects, and bogged down with nothing-but-lace, so these are the best of both!

Ever had a project go more quickly than you expected?

  1. Not about socks (!), but will you be attending EdinYarnFest?

  2. Gorgeous blue! I am finding simple patterned socks surprisingly quick & fun to knit. It also depends on my mood, too.
