Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy


One Sock Down

originally uploaded by Suzann.
Sock on complete. A few changes. Ignore anything I said about the picot hem. I was all wet. It was so tight I couldn't get the cuff over my foot. I frogged the top and did a ribbing top. I will try the picot hem again, but I will do the provisional cast on. I can see my normal cast on was too tight. There was no stretch at all. And I think I will not go down a needle size. Speaking of which. I usually go down a needle size to do the heel and foot. In this case I should have added more stitches. The pattern calls for a band heel Which I had never done before. It is quite cool. If you don't like gusset decreases, the band heel is for you. But I have a feeling it was a bit tighter then my usual heel. The area over the arch is tight and the pattern is stretched out. On the second sock I will do my normal heel and see if that makes a difference. To compensate for the smaller needle I added a purl between the leaf pattern and one on each side. I carried the purls down to the toe. Looks nice I think, well you can't see it in the picture. But I like it. It has been really hard to get a clear picture of this yarn and pattern. Sorry for the fuzzy stuff.
Oh I did a round toe, which fits me so well. Socks without feet in them look weird, just a stray thought ;)
