Only week 3 of my "pair a week" pledge and I feel like a "chain-socker". Similar to "chain-smoking" and nearly as damaging to your health. Addiction comes in many forms.
In order to keep myself on track, the instant I bind off one sock, I bind on another. Keeps you from procrastinating!
This weeks socks are perhaps my favorite and most hated all at the same time. I knit them from a pattern on knitty.com and although I am usually skeptical of free online patterns, this one had few glitches and knit up pretty smoothly. I used a Supersocke yarn again...I can't get enough of their color pallet!
I will tell you that it's a toe-up sock, and I probably won't be knitting many more of those. I prefer leg down, it gives you nicer ends on both the calf and the toe.
The unique thing about these socks is the sole. It is in a linen stitch, with looks almost mat-like and holds up...well...forever I hope!
Headed for another member of my xmas list...they are too big for me...thats a hint.
Hope this Thanksgiving week is wonderful for you all. In honor of thankfulness, I have a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!
