Midway with Mindful Steps

I cast on these socks in March, did a few rows of ribbing for the cuffs and then left them alone until last Thusday's knit night at The Fiber Universe.  Having just finished my entrelac scarf a few days before, I did not have anything else on the needles.  I have lots of thing I want to start, but I was in a hurry go get going so, I grabbed the socks.  I am glad I did because I am really enjoying them.

The pattern is Mindful Steps available on Knit Picks.  I am using Cascade Yarns Heritage sock yarn.  I love the blue-green color.  I have been buying a lot of things with this color in it lately.  The photo really does not do the color justice.  I really need to sharpen my yarn photography skills.  Maybe I can get my husband to make me a light box.  I can hope.

I am making these socks two-at-a-time.  This is only my second time with this technique and first time on socks (well they are only my second pair of socks).  If you ever plan on making matching round objects, I highly recommend you try this method.  I love it.

I am really enjoying the construction of these socks. There is this fun, little two-stitch cable that really adds interest.  I only have another inch to knit before I start turning the heel.

I have three more projects I want to get started soon.

 I have the yarn, pattern and needles to make them.

Which do you think I should make first?


  1. Hedgehog! Hedgehog!

    1. That is what my MIL said too. I got purple fuzzy yarn because it is D's favorite color. It will be fun to make.

  2. Love that scarf! Are you going to make it that color, too? That color is very pretty.

    1. The yarn I have is a nice green color and I got clear/white-isht beads.
