Continued CC through socks with simple intarsia-in-the-round technique.
On one sock I moved the green “stem” stitches across with the main fabric with cable-like moves and on the other I inc/dec either side of CC yarn.
Stems moved at random but in same general direction across the foot and then around the leg.
Included calf shaping
I never blogged about these in case I wanted to send them to a magazine for publication, but I’ve decided to either self-publish or just not bother at all! If I do write them up, they would be a paid pattern because there’s quite a bit of work involved (for me, anyway!)
Added a free-floating lace leaf at the end of the stems, and tacked it down at the point to the ribbing.
I *love* this song by British singer/rapper/songwriter/poet/novelist Kate Tempest (hey, leave some talent for the rest of us to mop up, Kate!). It’s a good job I like it because they play it a lot on BBC 6Music (the place where I first heard the track).
Here’s a quick peak at a new sock design I’m working on (for release in November, if all goes well).
It’s stranded colourwork, designed for women and/or men, and will be fully charted.
Ooooohhhh….. can you stand the excitement? Oh, you can? Carry on then!
