I knitted most of this sock on the return journey on the bus. I was so eager to get to the shadow wrap heel that I made the top of the sock much too short. Hmm. At home (not on the bus!) I unraveled the cast on part of the sock and then knitted upwards, like a toe-up sock. I largely avoid toe-up socks because I worry about the cast off. It needs to be loose enough to get the sock on, without being scruffy. I've used a tubular cast off. I need a bit more practice I think, but it'll have to do. Now to make the second sock match without going through the same process. I'm going to research tubular cast on.
Looks like a cozy sock!ReplyDelete
Learning from one's mistakes can add so much to our repertoire! The white speckles look like tiny flakes of snow. 💙💜💙ReplyDelete
Nice sock! :)ReplyDelete
I like the way the yarn looks knitted into the sock. Repeating what I did, even if it's a "design element" is the hardest thing for me. Probably why I don't improvise well at the keyboard.....ReplyDelete
I think you did a great job with the socks,ReplyDelete
