Thank you for coming up with names for the textured stitch! I liked them all and went with stgeorgeknits name for the textured stitch: Double Dot Stitch. Actually, that’s the name I thought of as well.
So the socks are finally finished! And will be on their way to the recipient soon. They almost match just like the first pair.
I still have some yarn left. 24 g (approx. 107 yards) of Beach House – the multi blue/teal and 22 g (approx. 98 yards) of the Hari Hari – grey. (I’m so glad I bought that scale!)
Two things I did differently were 1.) Twisted German aka Old Norwegian Cast-on and 2.) Eye of Partridge heel.
The cast-on is very stretchy or at least more so than the longtail cast-on that I usually use. The Eye of Partridge heel is very similar to the “normal” heel flap but I wanted to try it so I did. It looks more sophisticated.
So there we have it. The Double Dot Sock. I anyone is interested, I will be happy to write up the pattern.
Yes, I realize there are still six days (including today) left of the year though I’m pretty sure I won’t finish any knitting projects between now and January 1st. Especially since I only have one on the needles and it’s been in a timeout for a l-o-n-g time.
In fact, I’m desperately trying to find a project I can work on.
…ta-da! The latest in the series of Dorothy’s SSSK socks knit in Berroco Comfort Sock yarn.
I liked the yarn, however, the bluish-grey color was not a continuous ball. I found four, count ’em, FOUR knots with cut ends and I didn’t even use the entire ball! Good thing a continuous color was not integral to the pattern.
Gotta get them ready to mail.
PS I hope you all had a peaceful, loud, calm, joyful, bright Christmas.
