And that is just what they will do....I finished my 3rd pair of socks and Jason is the lucky recipient. The first pair I finished shown here to the right are not my favorite. It was a sock that I learned by and I am grateful for that and thankful that I am a better sock knitter now. The second pair I finished was for sockapalooza. These I am in love with and wish I could have kept them for me. And lastly the ones I just finished (while the Red Sox lost in the 11th Freaking inning - and for those of you who don't know there are only 9 innings and the Indians scored 7 runs in the last inning. UGH! So I stayed up to watch my team loose, ain't that the pits. But it is only the 2nd game and they still have a chance....) I am very pleased with these socks. The pattern is Undulating Rib Socks by Ann Budd (one of my favorite pattern writers, great turned heel and great instructions). I will not point out the mistakes in these socks, but those could have been helped if I hadn't had so much time between the first and second or if I had kept better notes. Although my notes seemed to be detailed - my slash marks and such mislead me. But I have learned my lesson and plan on either taking better notes or not leaving so much time in between.
Here is the close up of the pattern which is so unique and super easy once you get started! The sock is in Lorna's Lace Gold Hill. Wish there was a bit less of the purple, but what can you do. I needed the yarn and there were very few colors that had 2 skeins and being the impatient gal I am sometimes - I bought the most boy looking color I could find.
I am thinking of doing a toe up this time, which I am excited about and looking forward to trying - and this time they will be for me. Any tips?
