Notes

Used the Show-off Stranded Socks stitch pattern but my usual heel and toe.

I love these socks! It took me three tries to end up with these. I started off with vanilla socks, which was resulting in some ugly pooling. Then I tried Jaywalkers, which made a nice chevron design, but the fit was off: too big on my leg but I could barely get them over my ankle. Third try: vanilla socks using the stitch pattern from the Show-off Stranded Socks. Perfect! Thin swirls that almost look like stripes.

Also, this yarn is really nice. My favorite kind of sock yarn: tightly plied so that it has texture even in stockinette stitch.

Pair #1 of 6 for myself in 2015.
