sprang sock

Been wanting to try a pair of socks, using the sprang technique. Today was the day.

After taking 50 pages of my book to the layout people, I came home and set up to sprang a pair of socks.

Two socks at once

Spranging socks, two at a time

I worked several ‘short rows’ over the middle 50% of the stitches for a few rows.

I’ve also been playing with different means of finishing the cut ends. Here I pulled each strand back along the path it travelled over the past two rows. It makes a nice fringe just below the edge.
