FO – Slip Jigs
I finished my first Christmas present for Rose–Slip Jigs from this March’s Rockin’ Sock Club. When I first got the skein, I wasn’t a big fan:
Then I thought of Rose and these are so her colors. So I started a Christmas present very early.
Pattern: Slip Jigs by Irishgirlieknits from the 2010 Rockin’ Sock Club
My Ravelry Project Page
Yarn(s): Socks that Rock, Mediumweight
Colorway(s): My Wild Irish Girlie
Needle(s): US 1 – 2.25 mm
Casted On: April 10, 2010
Casted Off: July 11, 2010
Modifications: I didn’t do any. I followed the pattern exactly as written, even did the heel flap.
But if I could change one thing, it would be the toe. There are a lot of stitches between the decreases making the toes a little…bunchy. But then again, the slip pattern does go up the side of the socks so I am not entirely sure how I could edit the pattern.
It was a fun knit though. I know Rose will love these socks to pieces. One Christmas present down, plenty more left to do. I’m trying to get a head start on Christmas knitting, if you can believe it, because I will be spending a better part of September and October running around like a chicken with her head cut off because of our wedding
