Summer Waters Socks (2010)
|Pattern: Usual sock hybrid
Yarn: Zittron Trekking Hand Art, (approx 274m)
Method: Hand knitting
Completed: July 26 2010.
These are my standard socks — toe up, following Wendy’s Toe-Up pattern, and Cat Bordhi’s Riverbed Arch expansion/plain heel. I did a basic twisted stitch pattern to make upwards-pointing “V”s in the ankle, with a bit of ribbing. I didn’t want anything that would be too distracted by the variegated colouring in the yarn.
Overall, they are nice and stretchy and comfortable. A bit of a “woolly” feel.
