Announcing the Stuff It Stocking KAL!

The holiday season is coming faster than we know it so let's make a Christmas stocking just in time for Santa to stuff it full of goodies. The Stuff It Stocking knit along is the perfect way to learn how to knit a sock. You'll learn lots of new techniques and I'll be right here to answer any questions for you. Let's knit together!

The Stuff It Stocking will begin on Tuesday, December, 4, 2014 and run for two and a half weeks. You can make the Stuff It Stocking even if you've never knit a sock before! This top-down sock knitting pattern has a few extra techniques, too. If you're a more experienced knitter maybe you'll learn something new or maybe you just want to knit along. Great!

What will I learn?

Each topic will be posted here on our blog. Here are the dates and topics for each section of the KAL: 

  • Thursday 12/4: Casting on, knitting in the round, working the hem at the top.
  • Tuesday 12/9: Knitting the body of the sock and carrying colors while striping.
  • Thursday 12/11: Making the heel flap, turning the heel, knitting the instep.
  • Tuesday 12/16: Decreasing for the toe and Kitchener Stitch.
  • Thursday 12/18: Hang loop i-cord, finishing and blocking. Santa's coming!

Let's knit! What colors of Wooly Worsted yarn will you pick? 

Color Theory: Berry

It doesn't matter what the season, I always need a little pop of pink. Our Wooly Worsted yarn comes in the perfect shade of warm magenta that's reminiscent of summer raspberries. I've pulled together some of my favorite knitting patterns, accessories and maybe even a pair of shoes that are all inspired by our worsted weight Berry merino yarn. Think pink!

Wrapping up the KAL - Double Deco in action

Today's the day! The last day to finish up (or get as far as you can) with this lovely Knit Along. 

We've loved every stitch of it. Thank you for taking this knitting journey with us! Seeing your color ideas, progress shots, chatting about techniques-- it's been fabulous.

So... how did we do? Here's my Vanilla-Brushed Silver- Indigo -Orange Peel version:

I knit REALLY LOOSE on this one, and my wrap turned out big and long and luscious. Normally I am such a tight knitter, it was really liberating to just let 'er rip and not worry about my gauge at all. I love how it turned out!

It's been such fun. I hope to keep in touch with you guys for more fun knitting adventures! Follow me (Leah, aka Ruby Submarine) on Twitter, Instagram, Ravelry, and Facebook.

Here's hoping your knitting is going smoothly. I can't wait to see more completed projects! #DoubleDecoKAL
