Wow. Taking pictures of socks is hard. I decided to post some of my fails today to show you that yes, taking photos of your own feet is a challenge. And no, Chris cannot do it, he is never home during daylight!! At least not when I am.
The Pattern: I just did a plain version with increases up to 64 sts instead of 72 of this pattern. I also decreased to 60 on the leg.
The Yarn: Gray, Golden Yellow, and Pumpkin Self-Striping Superwash Merino Sock Yarn from AlaskanNancy
The Needles: Us size 1 / 2.25mm Chiagoo AMAZINGNESS
The Notes: Obviously I love these socks. I mean, they’ve totally taken over my entire blog for the past week. This yarn is the best. It is sooooo nice on the toes. The striping is amazing. I used pretty much all of the 110g of yarn I had. I love how I was able to match up the stripes pretty much perfectly. It actually made it easy to replicate two almost identical socks because I could watch the striping around the heel and know exactly what to do next. I highly recommend Nancy’s shop, Fireweed Dyeworks. I knit these puppies up in 6 days!!!
I’m joining in with Tami for this weeks FO friday. Go check out her cute sweater and everyone else’s stuff! I see a night of blog reading and knitting larch sleeves in my future. The boyfriend ( or should I call him the DJ) is getting a new CDJ (like a turntable that uses CD’s instead of records) on his way home from work tonight so I am going to be left to my own devices. I like it.
