i finished my first actual pair of socks. i knit them at the same time, magic loooooooooooop style, in a toe-up (figure-8 cast-on) style, with a reverse dutch heel. (this is the point where chris’ head implodes).
i took these pictures in a skirt, wearing maryjanes because this is how i see handknit socks proudly displayed on the internet. being new to the sock phenomenon, i’m doing my best to fit in. i even shaved my legs for you, people.
pattern: none – toe-up stockinette socks, with a reverse dutch heel.
yarn: cherry tree hill supersock in peacock colorway
needles: US2 addi turbos, 40″ circs
so, the final consensus is that i didn’t hate this. i do like tiny needles and tiny yarn, and even the process. part of my strong dislike is that i’ve had that knitpicks essentials for well over a year and have knit it 4-5 times and always frogged it. so maybe i need new yarn. darn… i have to buy new yarn?
*seriously. they’re huge. i have 9″ ankles. i have 18″ calves.
my calves are twice the size of my ankles. TWICE. THE. SIZE. while i like that i have shapely legs (woot!) i need some moderation with my overall dimensions.
i’m also knock-kneed, but that’s neither here nor there.
