In response to this post, my mom emailed me and asked, “Did you knit only one sock?” Despite my tendencies to become bored half-way through a knit project, I actually did complete the second sock. I still have a couple of ends to weave in but they were done enough for some modeling this morning.
Pattern: For Me All Me Koigu Socks
I made it up as I went on the first sock then “read” the first sock to make the second one. Toe-up, short-row toes, arch ribbing, and Widdershins heels.
Yarn: Koigu Kersti Merino Crepe, 2 skeins, from my stash.
This yarn was a birthday present from a non-knitting friend. Not bad, eh? I can’t find the yarn labels right now. A turquoise somewhat solid was used for the toes, heels, and ribbing, a mulitcolor was used for the rest. I split the multicolor skein in half then knit each sock until each half ran out (ah, the beauty of toe-up socks). Most of the somewhat solid yarn was used; I have about 10 yards left.
Needles: US 4 and US 3 (on the ribbing) Addi Turbos using Magic Loop.
I love me some Magic Loop. It is perfect for DPN klutzes like me.
I didn’t get very far in the photo session before someone decided she wanted to show off her modeling skills.
