Sock+ Progress = sogress.
I have one of my Sockotta Fair Isle-esque socks done and it’s so easy I called it “Easy Peasy.” I know, my creativity never fails to astound me, either. But, ya don’t get socks more basic than this. Cuff down, 8 rounds of 2×2, then straight stockinette. Mindless.
You know how you’re doing a cuff down sock? And the heel flap is the only part not worked in the round? And if you’re using a self-striping yarn the stripes get really fat? Because they’re only going across half the number of stitches? Yeah. I ❤ that.
And that charming little gusset, too. Gusset! Gusset! (Is it a dirty word yet?)
As the Kool-Aid guy says, “Oh, yeah.” It doesn’t get more perfect than that. (Ignore the difference in the cuffs–sock #1’s cuff is stretched out ’cause I wore it around the house all evening.
See? Perfect. And I only had to fudge a little bit on where I started the second sock. But that doesn’t count because it’s all in the name of my long-term sanity.
❤ you, Easy Peasy socks. And I can’t wait to finish you and move on to greater things. Lace ‘n’ such. ::sob:: I’m so sorry!
