FO – Pointelle Socks
I’m doing more than reading!
Sometimes I can’t keep all my hobbies straight. I never thought I’d say this but I appear to be reading more than knitting. I don’t feel bad of course but I guess I just want to acknowledge how people’s hobbies can change or expand
I finished a pair of socks from Knit. Sock. Love. Pointelle was one of my favorite new patterns in this book and I finally finished my own pair
Pattern: Pointelle Socks by Cookie A from Knit Sock Love
My Ravelry Project Page
Yarn(s): Frogtree Pediboo, 1.5 skeins, 382 yards.
Needle(s): US 0 – 2.0 mm
Casted On: January 2, 2012
Casted Off: June 9, 2012
Modifications: None. I knit the larger size at a smaller gauge so the sizing would turn out correctly. (The larger sock required 70 stitches for cast on. I’m usually ok with size 1s and 60 stitches so using a smaller needle helped balance everything out.
I love Cookie Patterns! I can’t get enough of them. These certainly kept my attention with the curving vine going across the instep.
Here is a more detailed shot of my left and right foot up against each other so the foot lace pattern is more prominent:
And this color!
I saw a woman on Downton Abbey wearing a skirt made out of this light green and I just went “WANT!” and I seem to be attracted to this color for the time being. Case in point: Some of the loot I got at this past year’s Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival:
And it was interesting hanging out with my friends at MDSW. One friend was on a silver theme and another a blue theme. This year was pleasant because I didn’t pick my usual purples or deep reds
Well anyway…I finally was able to finish these socks after they spent some time in my project box and I certainly love how they turned out. I’m just about to finish these socks as well, to continue with my sock theme.
