Adversity Socks (2011)

adversity socks
Pattern:  Usual sock hybrid

Tess Super socks & baby, (approx 300 yds)
Method:  Hand knitting
Completed:  February 24 2011.

These are my standard socks -- toe up, following Wendy's Toe-Up pattern, and Cat Bordhi's Riverbed Arch expansion/plain heel.   I used Barbara Walker's "Gothic Lattic" pattern.  I have used this pattern before.  I've used Tess yarn before, too.  I love it -- good colours, nice stitch definition, and it wears well.

I called them my "Adversity Socks", in part because I had to start them about 3 times because of various things not working out: even if you've knit more than a dozen pairs of socks, you do have to be able to concentrate in order to get them done.
