The single sock liberation movement has lost another soldier from its army.
Pattern: Victorian Lace Socks from the Six Sox Knitalong, by Lorri Ann Romesberg
Yarn: Spirit Trail Fiberworks superwash merino
Time elapsed: Around a week for a single sock
Modifications/Notes: The incredibly talented Stacey chose the pattern, yarn, and knit the first sock for me. It was very, very soothing to have a lovely sock to knit where all decisions had been made for me. They’re the perfect length, the perfect yarn, a perfect pattern, a perfect fit. Thanks so much, Stacey.
Jacob and I had lots of fun with the camera today. I noticed that yoga has really helped me get more interesting sock pictures!
Jacob doesn’t know about the yoga part, but sure loves playing with the remote for the camera.
Riiight, I’m supposed to be talking about the socks. Well, more goofy pictures are here. The mini-melon pattern could be fiddly at times, and I had to ladder down a few stitches and fix them twice, but overall this was an interesting but not too difficult pattern. The yarn is fantastic, really amazing stuff. I should get more of it one of these days. It’s soft, the color changes are subtle and gorgeous, and it’s on the thinner side so it should be perfect for, say, many Nancy Bush patterns.
The resulting sock definitely needed a good blocking, since it’s both lace and ribbing, but wound up cozy and beautiful. And really, what else can you ask for in a sock?
