Just wanted to post an update on my current morning sock knitting and the progress I’m making.
Here’s a link to this project on Ravelry. You’ll find more details there but the yarn is Zauberball and the pattern is Taffy Toes by Tabetha Hedrick. This is one that I kitted up a long time ago. I have no idea when. I know I didn’t kit it up for last year so it might have been in 2018 when I put this together. Who knows…
Anyway, I don’t like the yarn. Nothing wrong with Zauberball. It’s all personal preference. It’s single ply and a little inconsistent. Some parts are thicker than other parts. But the color is knitting up amazing and I love the rainbow. I haven’t done cuff down in a long while as I prefer toe up but the pattern is written cuff down and I didn’t have the brain power to switch it. So I stuck with what was written.
I usually knit 15 min/day but the pattern is not too complex and I’m allowing myself 4 rounds per day which is a bit more than 15 minutes. I don’t really keep track unless I’ve got a meeting to attend so I am enjoying my morning knit. I’ve got about 20 more rounds to do before I start the heel which will make the leg a bit longer. It’s currently way longer than I normally knit the leg but I want the full rainbow to be visible so I’m okay with it.

Oh, wow – love the colors!
looks so great!
I’ve always eyed the zauerballs but never knit with one. These look great!
You are a brave woman to use single ply for socks. Best wishes that they last. Hopefully you are using reenforcing yarn for the heels. This year I’m trying setting a target number of stitches. We will see if it helps me “get stuff done”. 🙂
thanks. It’s my first time using single ply for socks and no I didn’t even think to add reenforcing yarn for the heels. I have some too… Maybe I’ll add some to the toes and then see how it goes. I have a lot of hand knit socks so I’m not too worried about using these. 🙂
I comment only because I just darned a pair of cotton socks I made. Didn’t think about the yarn that I love so much, Fixation, doesn’t have any nylon to give it strength. Was so sad when they developed holes in the heel. So this week I learned how to knit a patch to cover the hole.
