As I mentioned on Monday, I’m knitting the Squircle socks. These are a marvellous creation, and a great way to use up left over sock yarn. I knit them on 2.25mm needles, partly to see if I can get away with these, or if I should be using 2mm needles for all my socks.
I selected a range of colours, based on what I had lying around. They are all “sock weight” or four ply, but there is actually quite a range of thicknesses. The dark blue is what I knit Leon's lastest pair of socks on, the one that made me realise 2.5mm isn't going to work anymore.
Looking at it in the sock, if I was going to choose a needle size to knit this yarn on it would definitely be 2mm. I have another skein of this yarn (dyed green by me) and I’m itching to get it on some 2mm needles to see how that goes. Before that though, I'm knitting myself a pair of sneaker liners, to use up that stunning teal Wollmeise.
