X-Factor Knit Along – Part 1

Well who watched it? Come on, you’re amongst friends here, you can admit it? Of course you know that I’m taking about X-Factor 2011, the first episode of this series!

It’s only 1 episode in and already I’m hooked, and there was talent, and tantrums, and just plain awfulness as usual. But I did enjoy it.

Perhaps it was the champagne that did it?

X-Factor 2011 begins - CHEERS!

X-Factor 2011 begins - CHEERS!

And for those of you that joined in, and made my first ever mystery sock KAL happen, thank you so much.

Don’t forget you can still join in, there isn’t a deadline each week, but it pays to complete each section each week as people with their completed X-Factor KALS all finished by the finals week will be entered into a prize draw and win some Easyknits.co.uk goodies, perfect in time for christmas presents for yourself. So go here and join in, you can download the first part of the pattern from the X-factor 2011 KAL page on this blog, or go to the Ravelry forum and follow the link to our website to grab it.

So I have completed sock 1 week 1, and will be casting on sock 2 this evening, once done, I will then start work on part 2 of the design, which will include the heel of the sock…. wanna see? Of course you do! Here is our lacy cuff with our first chart, and what else could it be apart from a giant X ? This sock is knit in Easyknits.co.uk Twinkle sock yarn in ‘Glace Cherry’.

  1. This pattern is about as close as I’m going to get to X Factor, but shall knit it whilst watching Dr Who and Torchwood instead 🙂

    You might want to make your links open in another tab/window so folks don’t get sidetracked by Ravelry and forget to come back to your blog and comment!
