Brethren in Blues

Musical Brethren in Blues (2)
Here is the Brethren in Blue. This is a great yarn that has subtle purple spots around. By now I can say with certainty that given the right circumstances, I can knit a pair of Brethren socks in under two weeks. I hope you enjoy the color and thanks for stopping by!

I'm beginning to think that Andy has a white pair of socks, and he changes the colour each month with Photoshop!
(...just teasing, I watch him knitting all these...)

Bill when I do the pair in plain white, people are going to be in shock, ha ha ha! I have not decided what to do for next month.

Beautiful work, Andy. The colours you choose are fantastic.

Andy, wonderful work, as usual. Such consistency. Do you knit with magic loop or DPNs? There seems to be a spot that gives us magic loop folks a bit of a struggle.

I use DPNs, I don't really like magic loop

Any I am the same way. I tried the magic loop. It just didn't feel right. I have a fondness for the DPNs. Presently I am using them to work on the sleeves of a sweater I am making I used circular needle up to the point it would't work any more that is one thing with DPN's it works better with tight areas .

White? Never! Colour rules! I think these socks look great And, completed in 2 weeks - amazing! I do 2 socks on 2 circs but I can't imagine knitting that quickly, especially with cables. You are the best! PS: Love the hat.

Yet another great pair of brethren socks...you are gathering quite a tribe of them.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Very nice. I would have a pair too. But I had issues. I asked for help, but only one responded, but couldn't help.

Hey Terry. I am only going to answer once as I think the system went crazy. Did you get the help you needed?

Thunderhorse54's picture

No, I didn't I tried twice with the same result. I've since ripped them and made plain, standard socks. I really wanted them too.

When you try the next time, hang on and we will help you. I don't come here as often as I used to, but I respond to personal messages.

I also made a pair of the Brethren Socks and I ran into issues similar to Terry's. Ken in Maine helped me, but I haven't tried to make another pair yet. If you and I ever get to be at a retreat together, I will handcuff you to a chair and pick your brain for hours, so that I can get the definitive answer to my magic loop vs. DPN knitting of these socks. They are so lovely that it's a shame that there are only one or two sticky spots for us magic loopers.
