Wednesday’s WIP : Rainbow Dash socks

That is what the 5 year old has been calling these socks. She loves My Little Pony and especially Rainbow Dash. So these socks are the perfect thing for her. She tried to talk me into knitting her wings with the yarn, but I told her that there wasn't enough yarn. I have two balls of the rainbow yarn and her socks usually take less than one ball so I am hoping to make some more coffee cup sleeves.


I had forgotten how much faster socks on DPNs are for me. I find them so much faster and hassle free compared to magic loop. It might be because the joins on my cables aren't that smooth. I am loving the plain vanilla socks, great for watching tv or listening to podcasts.

What are you working on?

    I am yet to try self-striping but I rather fancy it at the moment. Just a lovely change of colour as I zip round and round … ah …
    I’m a big dpn fan for socks but have just been trying an Addi circular for my most recent pair… and I’m quite enjoying magic looping with that 🙂

      I love love love self striping socks. They are the perfect thing for tv knitting, they also make for really pretty things without having the weave in a gazillion ends. I was just thinking about getting a pair of the kollage square needles to try out for magic loop, I have read a lot of good reviews. It is not just the joins that bother me, I feel that the time it takes to pull the cord and adjust the position of the stitches is a waste, DPNs are faster and easier for me.
