A FO!

No post last weekend because I finished my first socks!


Pattern: Lattice Stitch in More Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch
Yarn: Zitron Trekking XXL - 100
Mods: I did a yarn over short row heel and the asymmetrical toe because I have pointy toes. Also I cast on 72 per the book, but as you can see on my right sock cuff, that was too many. No wonder it took so long to finish.

Last night I cast on Cable Twist Socks (Ravelry Link). No pictures here since the recipient might read this blog. But I am extremely happy with the pattern and yarn combination. It's going quick too. I'm planning on an Eye of Partridge heel flap (like Grumperina's) but we'll see when I get there.
