Here is my first Bamboo Rib Sock, done in Regia Bamboo Yarn, posing with the STILL blooming Bob Serbin African Violet. The toe needs grafting so I can use the needles to start the second sock. Ack! right away! Before I start the Panda Cotton sock. The other two pots have Ness’s Orange Pekoe young… Continue reading One Bamboo Sock
Well, my sock is closer to the toe, and the shrug hasn’t grown much. I got two new circular needles from Knit Picks, so I could cast on the Panda Cotton sock.

I started new socks the other day, after I got the Iknitiative Bamboo Rib socks pattern in the mail for my Regia Bamboo yarn. I like the pattern. It has some purl bars to break up the ribs and provide interest. These are on my 2.5mm Addis. I have ordered 2.25 and 2.75mm circs from… Continue reading A New Sock
