Pat's Knitting and Quilting
April 24 , 2007
Oh how I loved making these socks!! When I was a few pattern repeats in....I went back to Red Bird Knits and joined Robyn's sock club, at 1st with the every other month option, but 2 days later I went back again and changed to the EVERY month option so I wouldn't miss any socks.
I made only a few minor changes to this wonderful pattern, centering the sole pattern and knitting a plain round before starting the toe decreases so as not to distort the pattern. My stranded knitting is getting even enough so that I didn't even need to block these socks and the fit is perfect!!!
We had a great vacation despite the lousy weather - it is just fun to be someplace else! Here are a few pictures (as you can see - a lot of indoor experiences since outdoors it was cold, windy, rainy most of the time).
