3/7/10: I developed a hole near the heel of one sock. It wasn’t due to wear. I think I dropped a stitch or did something funky with the yarn.
Darning didn’t fix it so I’ve ripped back to the foot and am reknitting the sock. I love these socks too much to give up on them.
3/14/10: I cast off the socks this afternoon. My plan of knitting one pair of socks a month this year is woefully behind. This is pair one and it’s already March 14th.
I liked this yarn a lot. Each skein had a couple of knots, but I was able to work them out without cutting.
- CO 6
- Increase to 72
- 7” foot before heel flap
- 2” heel flap
- Continue heel pattern for a few rows after decreases are finished in order to make a larger heel flap.
- 4.25” leg after heel flap
- 2” cuff in 2x2 ribbing
3/8/10: I finished the first cuff tonight. I still have to bind it off, but I’m going to finish the second cuff and do them together.
2/24/10: Both gussets are done and I’m knitting up both legs.
2/14/10: I’ve picked up the gusset and started up the leg of one sock.
1/26/10: I’m home sick from work and completed both heel flaps and both heel turns.
1/23/10: Both feet are done.
1/9/10: I increased to 72.
These socks are coming along nicely. The yarn is a joy to knit and I love the striping.
I cast on the second sock today
1/1/10: I’m a classic movie nerd. I have to own a color called Film Noir! And to complete the dorkdom…I have to knit them while on my Humphrey Bogart kick.
I cast on 6 for these socks.
