Of course…

If you have been reading, you may remember that I was working on a pair of socks for me, out of some great purple/green and white yarn from BrightDyes. I loved how it was turning out. I also tried an Eye of the Partridge heel stitch, which was new for me. Doesn’t it look great?!

What does not look so great is the color striping for the gusset.

Or the fact that this sock is really too big for me.

So the ball winder and I made a date. Now my socks look like this!

I’m still making this into socks for me. It needs short-row heels though. Maybe I might make some monkey socks. I think this would look good in the pattern. I like the idea of plain socks still too. I’ll have to sleep on it and see. If you have ideas, leave them quick so I can consider them.

  1. Once I got past (developmentally) plain socks it’s been hard to go back to them. “Fancy” socks are not such a reward because they take longer. If you were to go with plain socks and brag about it, I would be happy to read it and then not feel like less of a knitter just making plain socks.
