The challenge: make my mum a pair of socks with no lace, no cables, no short-row heels but which will be fun and interesting enough for me not to want to stab my own eyes out.
The result: Slip into Spring!
The back of the leg is worked in a rib pattern to help hold the sock up (I hope)
Pattern: Slip into Spring (my own stitch pattern superimposed on Wendy’s Gusset Heel Toe-up sock)
Yarn/Needles/Technique: Lane Cervinia Forever Jacquard wool/nylon sock yarn with 2.25 mm KnitPro circular for Magic Loop. Toe-up 2-at-a-time.
Toe/heel: Wedge toe with Judy’s Magic Cast on. Gusset Heel from Socks from the Toe Up by WendyKnits.
I’m planning to make myself a pair of these in a semi-variegated yarn (my first Posh Yarn purchase to be precise) and then I may write up a pattern. Contain yourselves, good people!
Sorry for the inconsistent quality of the photos. I took these at 9 at night in March. Indoors. I did the best I could!
