Current SIP (Socks In Progress)

More yummy 2ply Aussie Merino from Marta's Yarns. I'm using two strands (a nearly solid red one and a variegated green one) so I'm knitting with 4ply (standard sock yarn weight) on 2.25mm bamboo needles.

Anyone recognise the pattern?

  • That yarn is a gorgeous colour - but 2 ply??? Must be like knitting with sewing thread LOL.

  • Hi Sandra. I'm actually double stranding it, so I'm using 4ply.

    I can't begin to imagine how long it would take me to knit 2ply socks or how thin the needles would have to be! ACK!

  • Thanks Shanwen and Lynda. Yes, it's another pair of "Gentleman's Plain Winter socks" from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks (the blue/purple pair I recently finished).

    These socks aren't for me though. I was asked to knit these "exactly like those (the blue/purple ones)" so I am.
