WIP: Mojo Socks

It's high time I got back to socks again! I've been wanting to knit some more for quite some time now, but there were a few other projects I had to finish first. So now I finally found a good use for my last two skeins of beautiful Koigu. Since intricate patterns don't work with this particular colourway, my only choice was a cable pattern or Mojo, really. Luckily I've had an eye on the Mojo pattern for a while and cast on the first sock last night.

It's a really easy pattern, so I don't expect complications of any kind. I made minor alterations to the toe (I prefer to make my on custom type) and I haven't turned the sock inside out while knitting as decribed. At this point I am not sure why that's required anyway - maybe I will find out by the time I get to the heel. Even though I usually make my own custom heel, I intend to give the described one a try. If it doesn't work, I can always unravel it and go back to my own kind again.

I've really missed knitting socks! They are my favourite type of knitting, to be honest. I am looking forward to getting on with these and having some more pictures to show later.

  1. The yarn that you use looks so soft! Love the earth tone color scheme too!
