I literally started knitting these in the dark, so by the time I had finished the ribbing, I had no idea what the sock was going to look like. I had only had a hunch that the beautifully subtle variegation would be perfect in this pattern. The next morning, I discovered that I was right! I love love love LOVE this colorway! I think I’m going to beg Tami for more.
Because I love this color so much, I want to use it all. I wound the skein by hand into two mostly equal balls. I’ll knit the socks one at a time, but I’m going to do them in parts. I’ll do the cuffs of each, then the heels, etc. I want to be sure that I did separate them equally (and I don’t have my scale with me)and that they fit each step of the way (I usually have about 64 sts on my socks, not 72). I think I can make these nearly knee-highs without any alteration to the pattern besides lengthening the cuffs, which means I can use up all the yarn! Hurray!
I hate twisted rib. Really a lot. I think the solution is sharper dpns, though. I need some new ones. Hiya Hiyas, I’m told….
One sock down. I think the only alterations I made were to lengthen the cuffs, Eye of Partridge heel flaps, and just sort of did the toe without looking at the directions doing k2tog first, then ssk.
Even though my notes weren’t so helpful, I managed to get the second sock to look just like the first. I love them!
