More socks!

I meant to show you these on Friday, but I got sidetracked and never wrote up the post!!  So… I’ll show them to you today. 🙂

I finished another pair of socks:

Pattern: improvised – (a  basic cuff-down 64 stitch sock with short row heels)
Yarn: Collinette Jitterbug in colorway Gauguin, with colorway Velvet Plum for the heels and toes
Needles: US 2 (2.75mm)
Started: January 12, 2012
Finished: January 24, 2012

Nothing spectacular about these – I did a 2×2 rib for the cuff and short row heels, and then decreased to 58 stitches for the foot after the heel, for a better fit.  Then I did a basic wedge toe.  Not sure I like the pooling going on, but the colors are wonderful.  It’s nice to add another pair to my sock drawer!

Short row heels with small gusset

I have two other pairs on the needles for my ‘art class’ knitting, so I’ll most likely have another finished pair to show you very soon.  Socks do make such wonderful ‘waiting room’ knitting!

Happy Knitting!!
