January Socks

January 21, 2015

Greetings Readers, Ira McKnitty-pants reporting to you from the Introverted Knitter’s blog. The Introvereted Knitter was last seen the previous evening working on a spindle project where she was heard muttering to herself something about “wanting to just finish the damn thing.” Sources tell me that the IK has been working on this spindle project for quite some time, and while she is still in love with it, the fact that she usually spins on her wheels has skewed her perspectives on time-frames.

I tried to reach out to IK for comments, but she did not respond to inquires about the specific projects, instead this reporter was given an exclusive look at a few recently completed projects. I share with you now a look at the most recent completed yarn from IK. You may remember this yarn from a few days ago, but here it is in it’s completed form. I was told by IK that this yarn has now been washed and dried, and that it plumped quite a bit with this process, resulting in a loss of yardage by some varying degree. I could not confirm this fact, nor was I able to receive more information from IK herself.

The colors seem to be fairly accurate although my sources tell me that the lighting for this photo was done via lamps and at a later time in the evening. I urge you to use your best judgement in forming opinions on the yarn moving forward.

Through the course of my brief conversation with IK I was also given exclusive access to her latest finished object. It appears she was willing to have me share it with you today. I believe I heard something about wanting to be “left well enough alone” at this point, but I am unable to corroborate at this time. The FO in question is none other than the IK’s January socks from her personal 2015 sock club. We have discovered the Introverted Knitter is participating in Kate’s, from the Stitch Addiction Podcast, personal sock club for this year. The goal I am told is to knit a pair of socks by the end of each month. It seems that IK has managed to finish her goal well before the due date, which seemed to please her, as this reporter saw a smile cross her otherwise focused and determined face.

I share with you now the exclusive first look at these socks.

I am told they are knit out of Knit Picks Felici in the Stream Bed colorway. They were knit on 2.25mm needles, or a US 1 for our American readers. I have also been able to determine that utilized a so-called after-thought-heel. The Introverted Knitter seemed only slightly impressed with the execution of this technique, but is of this reporter’s opinion that she may be just a tad over critical over her work. The pair mark her first for 2015, and are destined for her feet. It appears that these have yet to be worn, although I have been told they will enter the rotation within the next day or so.

So there you have it folks, a brief update on the Introverted Knitter and her recent escapades in the knitting and spinning world. I am Ira McKnitty-pants reporting.
