aejclarke I'm knitting my first cuff down sock. I'm blaming @bryonybears for this! I'm loving t so far and my ribbing is magically squidging up... I swear with all my toe ups, the ribbing naturally lies pretty flat... #operationsockdrawer #sockknitting #sockyarn #cuffdown #sockyarn #knittersofinstagram #knitting #handknit #handmade 3d
  •   the_ellipsissy I learnt toe up first and was resistant to cuff down thinking it old fashioned! But there are advantages to both. I prefer cuff down now! 3d
  •   theneedleneuk I have knit cuff down & toe up socks. I start my sock project by splitting the skein into 2 balls. Cuff down socks I'm able to get a better fit & toe up I maximize the yardage. 3d
  •   nimpin Pretty! I think I prefer toe up for the fit, but like you I find the cuff sits better with top down. 3d
  •   ellieknitter I always had the same problem with toe up. Could never figure it out! 3d
  •   aejclarke @ellieknitter I can't work out how that makes any sort of sense! 3d
  •   snippetsandstash I'm a top down and dpn's kind of gal. I keep saying I'll try toe up one day. 3d
  •   aejclarke Ugh why do I knit so tight? No way that's going to fit using. 2.5mm And the only 2.75 needle I own is in use. Pooop 3d

aejclarke Well I can't take a picture of this that shows the colours nicely... But this yarn is just so pretty. It's 'there be dragons' by #sparkleduck and it's lovely. Toby asked me if I'm knitting a dragon wing before I told him the name of the colourway!

aejclarke When yellow is your favourite colour and you like knitting... This is the best sight #yarn #knitting #knittersofinstagram #honeycowl 2w
  •   wklilly I have 4 Honeys in Malabrigo and they make the best cowls. Love that color! 2w
  •   aejclarke @wklilly what size needles did you use? I have such a tight gauge I was wondering if I'd get away with 4.5mm. And would you suggest doing the double length... As that's what I'd prefer but I don't want it to take forever! 2w
  •   wklilly @aejclarke -US 8. I've made all the sizes, but my fav is the large loop to double up. It's polar warm. You are gonna love it. 2w
  •   nimpin Perfection! Love that colour so much! 2w
  •   yesterdaydream What a lush color 1w
  •   knvalle You go girl! 1w

aejclarke Meh. Love the yarn... Not in love with the stitch pattern... And I don't like the toe colour. But I want a different coloured toe. I'm so full of indecision today! #operationsockdrawer #knitting #knittedsocks #knittersofinstagram #knit 1mon
  •   sewmeasong I really like! 1mon
  •   kinoknits I do like the stitch pattern! 1mon
  •   nimpin I love the pattern, and the yarn but not sure wether they work together? 1mon
  •   aejclarke @nimpin agreed... I just really like the crisp colour changes I think! 1mon
  •   myrullen Love yarn! This is really nice! 4w

aejclarke Just so flipping awesome. LOOK at those colours! Shame the mini skeins are too small for my blanket but it just gives me an excuse to make scrappy socks #sockyarn #knit #knitting #operationsockdrawer #miniskeins 1mon

aejclarke I think I'm liking this more with each square I add. Still not sure though... Everyone else's just look so much better! #scrapyarn #sockyarn #sockyarnblanket #miteredsquare 1mon

aejclarke Thank you @owlaboutyarn! That's was super fast postage! #operationsockdrawer #sockyarn #sockknitting #sockyarnblanket 1mon
  •   aejclarke @owlaboutyarn I've had to order more yarn now. So sneaky giving me £3 off my next order 1mon
  •   owlaboutyarn You're very welcome, and also for the sneaky discount! I love that colourway you've chosen, it's what I'm making my current pair of socks from. It'll be in the post in the morning! I'd dispatch a child to the post office today again, but I'm not home and I don't trust my menfolk to pack orders yet!! 1mon
  •   aejclarke @owlaboutyarn hehe don't worry! It looks amazing... I'm a sucker for self striping and sparkly so both together!! Couldn't resist 1mon

aejclarke Danger. This is going to take a while. Anyone out there want to swap some sock yarn scraps? #sockyarnblanket #sockyarn #miniskeins 1mon
  •   peggy_may_ If you have any spare if not don't worry. I'm peggymayyarns on Ravelry if you would like to send address on there or here which ever you prefer :-) 1mon
  •   silvertombs When I get more yarns I'll share some with you. I just started a blanket myself. 1mon
  •   aejclarke @silvertombs deal 1mon
  •   nimpin My blanket is sock yarn weight too and I'm trying to not repeat colours so happy to pass some scraps on if you'd like? 1mon
  •   aejclarke @nimpin okay sounds good. I'm not sure I've got much to swap though! How many grams do you need? 1mon
  •   nimpin I think mine are somewhere in between 5-10g but don't worry too much. I'm happy to pass some on to you regardless. Will take a picture of some I have with me (I'm on holiday right now) and send it to you x 1mon
  •   aejclarke @nimpin are you still interested in swapping? 3w
  •   nimpin Yes definitely! Sorry for not getting back to you sooner @aejclarke Send me a DM with your address and I will get some in the post to you :) x 3w

aejclarke What could cheer me up more than this plonking through my door when I'm essay writing?! Not much. If you're in the uk... then you must look up feltfusion on etsy and Facebook. This is the second time I've bought from her and it's just too pretty! #operationsockdrawer #sockyarn 1mon
