Pattern: Love Socks
Needles: US 2
Yarn: Berroco Comfort Sock (Grey) + Sensations Bamboo & Ewe (Red)
-Heel turn instructions are incorrect–worked it up twice before realizing this. I googled “how to turn a sock heel knitting” and got generic instructions. Instead of using PSSO I did SSK.
-Obviously I chose not to do the stripes
-Used these intarsia instructions from The Purl Bee
-Used Ysolda’s tubular cast on tut
-I only had one skein of the BCS yarn and wasn’t sure how much I would need (cons of cuff down) so chose to make these socks really short. (it’s a good thing I did, I have enough of it for another pair!)
-8 rows of 1X1 rib. I wanted to do 2X2 but it looked weird with the tubular cast on.
-20 rows after cuff before I started chart.
I finished the first sock in about two days but it took me a while to start the second. It wasn’t second sock syndrome (SSS)… more like wtf-yarn-tails-wont-stop-sticking-to-fresh-tattoo (WTFYTWSSFT).
Happy Sunday! Hope everyone had a good weekend. I sure did!
