Now you can find this sock pattern on my Free Pattern blog, link on the side bar.
As I said, I've ripped out the Montgolfiere (two color slip stitch knitting), because they were too big. I did stop at the ribbing and couldn't frog it all. So I was picking up the stitches and thought, what else I could do with this yarn ....
ASHES was the outcome. Naturally, because I loved the heel of the Shapely Sandal Socks, I had to try it out on my own terms, and I think it came out nice. Of course I realize, there are many socks out there, which were knit that way, but it was new for me.
The stitch pattern is a slip stitch pattern (again), but with only one color, duh, and sooo easy. The columns look a little like cables and it's lacy too, with little, purposeful wholes.
I've enjoyed knitting with the almost uni color. Not getting tired of the multicolored yarns, but still, it's restful to knit with simpler stuff. I've got some uni colored sock yarn in my stash and will dig them out shortly.
I've knit them in size 9, for Hannah and they fit perfectly. I still make mistakes Kitchener stitching the toe stitches together and ripping that out is always a pain, but with tongue in cheek, I did it. Very satisfying!
Well, off to the weekend now, ups, it's half over already! ;o)Don't believe his innocent look! Sam was chasing Biko around the balcony, when I called him, and he stopped short, looking all nice for the camera! He's a bad boy really! ;o)
