Happy Friday! Guess what I finished this week? Socks, of course.
Pattern :: Whatever Socks
Yarn :: Paton’s Kroy FX in camo
Needle :: US 1.5 (2.5 mm)
These socks had a rocky start but were well worth it in the end. Once I got the stitch count straightened out (76 st cast-on in the pattern trimmed to a 60 st cast-on) it was pretty smooth sailing. With everything clear, the second sock flew off the needles.
I had tried twisted stitches once before with not much luck. This time around was much better. Learning to read the knitting was a big help.
I love the subtle color change and the yarn made a firm fabric, just what ~J~ likes. He’s already worn his new socks and pronounced them very comfortable and warm. Maybe a little too warm for spring. These will be good deep-winter socks.
Enjoy your weekend!
