Pat's Knitting and Quilting
September 5 , 2007
Pattern: I L0ve Gansey Socks by Janine Le Cras. This is the August/September pattern for the Six Sock KAL group.
I do love gansey patterns, so it was fun to play with them on a sock canvas. I really like the way the large side cable splits off to form the heel and foot ribbing on these socks. Fun to knit, pretty, and a perfect fit...Silja is a very durable warm wooly sock yarn, so my toes will be toasty this winter!
Guess what? Much to my surprise, I am thoroughly enjoying the STR club kit socks - Summer of Love Lace. The cuff is knit flat like this.....
Then it is overlapped before starting the anklet and pretty heel.
I am still adjusting to the colors, but they are growing on me...
I joined Sock Knitter's Anonymous in Ravelry and quickly jumped on the SOCKDOWN challenge. For September, I started Maia's Mystery toe up sock called Scherherazade's Slippers - using some of my luxury Posh Yarn (The pattern is also available in weekly increments on Maia's blog). I'll take some pictures when I have more than the tip of a toe done!
