Socks, Again…

November 5, 2009

I feel so stupid!  These socks have been sitting there, taunting me with their not-quite-done status for months.  So tonight, I picked them up to work on them…and all they needed was to have the ends woven in.  Fifteen whole minutes later, they’re done.

The yarn is Noro Sock Yarn, from Twist.  The pattern is the Coriolus architecture from Cat Bordhi.

The Socks that took 2 Weeks

This pair took considerably less time than the last!  It’s the Monkey stitch pattern on a Bordhi Riverbed architecture (toe up) knit in Plymouth Happy Feet yarn.

The Socks that Took FOREVER!

February 11, 2009

Finally finished these socks I started in August?  September?  A long time ago, in sock time.  I practically knit two full pairs with this one ball of yarn, considering all the frogging I had to do to get them to fit…and they’re still not the best fitting socks I ever made.

These are knit from Pagewood Farm Glacier Bay Hand Dyed Sock Yarn.  The yarn was nice to work with, but the color crocked all over my hands something awful.  I’m hopeful they won’t stain my feet blue after a couple of washings with Synthrapol. The resulting socks are gorgeous, but oddly…crisp.

The pattern is a mashup of Cat Bordhi’s Riverbed architecture and a rib pattern from an Interweave Knits sock pattern from last year some time.  After the heel, I didn’t add any more rib columns — I just let the ones from the top of the foot spiral around the leg.  No ribbing at the top — just a bind off.  Because of the spiral ribbing, they twist a bit on my feet, but not uncomfortably so.
