Bunnies and more socks

I made my third pair of bunnies, just took me until after Easter to get them done. So that is a total of 6 now and I think I am done these little rabbits. I ordered a bunch of yarn from Knit Picks to try a variety of yarns.The pattern is from Little Cotton Rabbits on Ravelry.

I have had a crazy zauberball  from Schoppelwolle for a few years and it was always slated for socks for me, but I made another pair for my hubby, still just plain ribbed socks. They still fit over his heel and high arch and yet stay up over his slim legs.  I must say I love the colours in this pair, it makes for a fun knit as you want to see what the next section will look like.

Two Pairs of Socks.

 

I have slowly been knitting 2 pairs of socks for my hubby. I thought that I knew the pattern inside out, having knitted so many pairs of socks  in the past.I couldn’t remember how to turn a heel or how to the kitchener  stitch to do the toes. Then with both pairs I made one sock too short. I have now marked the ruler with a Sharpie so I hope that helps on the next pair.

The blue pair with the Trekking (XXL) yarn was first, just 2×2 rib. The first sock had a white section and I thought that another white band would appear in the rest of the ball somewhere but no, that was the only white section in that ball.

The next pair was with Stroll Tonal in Kindling from Knit picks.  I started in a 2×2 rib but then switched to a Fibonacci sequence over 17 stitches per needle.So 1P,2K 3P, 5K, 3P, 2K, 1P per needle. So 6 weeks of tv knitting, time now to go on to something else.

I started another pair of socks for him.
