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


Nancy Bush's Evening Stockings

One down, one to go.

I didn't want knee socks so I did a few mods on the pattern. I changed the heel flap to repeat the P1 K 5, pattern repeat. The flap is edged with seed stitch. I will do more rows of seed stitch on sock two. I did three seed stitches on each side. But one row gets eaten up when I picked up the gusset stitches. In effect I just used the lace pattern. I think they turned out pretty well. Of course I need to knit another one.

I did round toe, my favorite. I wanted to keep the P1 K5 pattern going. Due to brain damage I decreases in the purl stitches. This causes the purl row to go wonky. Next sock I will do the decreases in the knit stitches. That way the purl rows should remain true.

Sock without Suzann's big foot in it :-} I can't get the color right. But it isn't a light pink, more a peachy pink. The yarn is soft and cushy

Nice socks! Now that I have been bitten by the lace bug, I may try some.
The storms weren't too bad here although I felt sorry for Dogwood who was home without me when it was thundering. He hates thunder.

I love your socks, they are beautiful. Can you tell me how many stitches you did cast on ? I was trying this sock pattern, but I did something wrong.

Blogger Suzann Says:

Hi Martine

I cast on 60 stitches. But I am using a thicker yarn. Using a true fingering weight you might need to cast on more stitches. The pattern is very stretchy.
The pattern repeat is 6. So it needs to be a multiple of 6.

Thank's for helping me!! Now I know what I did wrong. I will cast on 66 stitches, that will be the right size for me.
