I’ve finished the April socks for my 2009 Personal Sock Club and I’m completely smitten with them.
The heel I chose begins the gusset increases in the middle of the bottom of the foot which I thought looked pretty cool. The only thing I didn’t like about it was it took me for-freaking-ever to do the heels. If I didn’t have such fat heels (or high insteps – whichever), I’d have done the regular short row heel like the pattern directs.
I am so totally loving these socks – I’ve worn them for three days. I should probably take them off and wash them eventually… ;o)
Yarn: Autumn House Farms Strideaway Sock Yarn in the colorway ‘Fox Grape’ purchased Rhinebeck 2007
Needles: Knitpicks 2.5mm circs
Started April 2 – Finished April 19, 2009
When I finished these on Sunday I had no plan whatsoever in place for what was going to be up next. Sure I have a ton of WIP’s but most of them are socks and I wanted to do something that wasn’t on leetle tiny needles for a change. It took me a day but I decided…
I’m on tier 3 and loving it – got the hang of backwards knitting too. ;o)
