WIP Wednesday - More Yoga Socks

You're probably wondering why I've posted a photo of pretty autumn flowers when we are still looking forward to any sign of Spring here in southern Ontario. Well here's the story. My new friend Wendy has inspired me to take on another pair of yoga socks. She has begun working on a pair for charity and asked me to help guide her through the beginning stages. Just getting that yarn on the needle reminded me of all the sock yarn I have in my stash: sparkly wool, calm blue bamboo, stretchy pink. Although I don't love making socks, I am itching to use up this yarn. And I seem to get a positive response on the yoga socks. So, hey, why not give them another go.

So, Saturday night I cast on my Berroco Sox Metallic. It's superwash wool and nylon--Warm! Strong!--with a metallic thread running through it--Oooh! Shiny!

Once I had been working with the yarn over the course of Sunday, I was reminded of a photo I took back in September 2012. Wow! Another inspiration! Now I am really enjoying working on these yoga socks. 


  1. Those will be lovely colourful yoga socks. I've knit a few pair and the first time our granddaughter saw them she said they were broken socks :)

  2. step by step instructions with photos and video pleeeeeeeeese :) ....great yarn

    1. I've never done a video before but, oddly, I have been thinking about it. I don't know that I have the appropriate tools. Although I can't promise anything, I'll look into it.
