My self-medication socks are DONE 🙂
Aren’t they pretty? They remind me of a Thomas the Train birthday cake. And a sunny day at the lake (any lake. You pick, I’m there.) And my favorite plaid shirt when I was a kid. I miss that shirt.
Can you tell which sock I knitted on the train to Chicago (remember: stressed. Rushing. Sock therapy.), and which I knitted over the course of two weeks’ commuting?
Yup, the one on my right foot was the Chicago sock. I was stressed, so my gauge was tighter, so the resultant spirals were wider. Looser tension and narrower spirals on the left-foot sock.
(Isn’t knitting FASCINATING?!)
These make me happy 🙂
Pattern: basic 64-stitch sock on US1 DPN’s, 30 rounds of ribbing at cuff and 6-stitch reverse stockinette edging on the heel flap. Nothin’ to it.
Yarn: Yarn Lust Back to Basics 100% wool sock (beautiful! And I think it’ll be very long-wearing :-))
