Here is the swatch for Jason's second pair of socks. I am using Lorna's Lace this time (machine washable, yes!), in Gold Hill. This sock yarn is lovely. It is super soft and the color is beautiful.
The first time that I made socks I did my swatch and then decreased my needle size to obtain gage, but I think my husband's first pair of socks would have fit a wee bit better if I had stuck to the larger needles.
So that is what I am doing this time. I am sticking to the 3's for the foot, casting on with 5's and knitting the ankle in 4's. I am knitting a pattern out of Favorite Socks by, interweave knits. It is called 'Undulated Ribboning', by Ann Budd. I would like to ask for help with what k1, p1, k1 all in the same stitch means? I'm sure I should already know how to do this, but I thought I would ask before I screw it up.
Off to knit more Isabella and to cast on for Jason's Sox part deux!
