June's socks

Click on the pictures to enlarge them.

Pixie pick-up stix in action! They work pretty well, but I suspect that these are not the genuine PPS, because the finish on a few of them is terrible. I need to take the sand paper to them for a snag-free knitting experience.

So great that they are working!

They're turning out lovely! Such pretty, subtle hues.

Elizabeth Zimmerman suggested sanding and then rubbing with wax paper to give older knitting needles a little 'lift'.

Such pretty socks and a great innovation with the pick up sticks!

You are a regular Macgyver. Maybe you can rub wax paper on them. That helps some needles side easier.
Socks look very nice!!
