I may have mentioned in my last post how much I 💕💝 these socks. It is my favorite all-time pair of socks that I’ve knit so far!
The Syncopation pattern is toe-up but I prefer to knit top-down. The textured pattern works quite well either way. I’ve used this particular pattern three times, toe-up once and top-down twice.
My Karate Kid grandson dyed the yarn in June and I overdyed it in August for a deeper, richer green and blue colorway. Some of the original light green is still visible in spots which gives the yarn such depth.
I knit these in nine days, quick for me, as I was under self-imposed pressure to get these in the mail before Christmas.
And to add a surprise…
..red toes! That will make it easier (I hope) to lengthen and/or repair in the future.
My focus has turned away from knitting socks for a while but I do have some other projects to share later.
Mr. Aitch and I do wish you a very Merry and Blessed Christmas. 🎄
I had to go out yesterday afternoon to pick up a few things for my sister. When I got back she said there was a little accident. I was expecting a bodily function type of accident but that wasn’t the case.
One of her greyhounds tried to help me with the sock I’m knitting for my daughter.
Fortunately no stitches were lost or dropped. It’s just going to take me a while to untangle and rewind that yarn mess back into a ball.
I should have known better than to leave my knitting unsecured.
