And boy howdy, am I pumped about these. According to Ravelry (and I’m a bit ashamed to admit it), they took over 2 years to complete!
Calling for worsted weight yarn, these socks feature Judy’s Magic Cast On and a Fleegle Heel. I was supposed to do an Invisible Ribbed Bind Off but I was so excited to be done that I didn’t want to take the time to have to learn something new and I just used a regular knit bind off with large needles. This was almost a huge mistake — I can barely get the cuff parts over my heels because of it! They do fit, though, so that’s fantastic!
If I ever get enough motivation to make another pair of knitted socks, I think I’ll use sock-weight yarn. This yarn is one of the softest I’ve ever felt but because the stitches are bigger (comparatively speaking, to the stitch size of sock-weight yarn), I can feel them on my heels and the balls of my feet when I walk. It’s a bit uncomfortable — I wouldn’t go to work or anything with them, but I’ll wear them at home all the time!
Check out my Ravelry project page to see more about the yarn and needles used, etc.
To all you sock makers out there, I had forgotten how hard it is to take pictures of my own feet! Do you have any tips? Also, do socks you’ve made with bigger yarn feel less comfortable when walking than socks made with thin yarn?
Well, that’s all for today. I’m off to do a little bit of cleaning — we have friends coming over today! Thanks so much for stopping by, see you next time!
