This is Lucy Neatby, she is quite a fun colorful lady and she is an excellent teacher of knitting.
I am currently taking the Lucy Neatby Craftsy sock class.
Or just buy the pattern direct from her site. It is now 50% off.
This is one colorful funky pair of socks and I love them. I have knit several pairs of socks for myself and thought it was time to try something new and different. I decided to sign up for this class and give it a whirl. There are new stitches to learn and a new way of constructing a sock. Having only ordinary simple socks is not enough.
I love the corrugated rib look of this cuff. It is not knit in the corrugated rib fashion. The cuff is a long width of garter stitch knitting in two colors that has lots of stretch to it and works better as a sock cuff.
Then there is the star stitch leg section which is pretty simple once you learn the stitch. And I thought the heel cable pattern would be harder but Lucy writes very clear and easy to follow instructions that even a beginner can follow along. And of course there is the class videos to guide you if you need some visual to watch to understand better.
This is my funky sock so far. I choose a jewel tone variegated contrasting yarn with a cream color as the main color. I am having fun learning new stitches.
Now I am onto the heel of the sock and i was worried the cabling section would be more complicated. But Lucy writes excellent instructions and it was easy to follow. I love the way it is coming out.
Don’t that just look cool!
I also took Lucy’s class on double knitting. Being interested in two color work I thought this would be a good technique to have more understanding of.
Cant wait to try a project in this. I would also love to get her book on this, it is on my wish list for sure.
But living in a truck I have limited room for excess things so I will have to think about this one a bit. In the mean time I will buy a few patterns so I can store it all digitally for now.
On to more knitting, have a sock to finish!
