FO: MY FIRST SOCKS!
That’s right, kids! My socks are done!
They are so very obnoxious and wonderful! The left one pooled more than the right one, but whatevs.
Pattern: The Universal Toe-Up Sock Pattern by
Yarn: South West Trading Company TOFUtsies
Mods: Ummm, lots of improvised increases … I did two increase rounds (increasing at the sides) after the heel, because the first time I almost-finished the first sock, the cast-off would not fit over my giant heel/ankle! So I increased, and it worked out fine.
Now I just need shoes to show them of … I found some at Payless, but I wasn’t in love with them, so I didn’t buy them. Plus, I need to be on a better budget, and new shoes aren’t included in that right now.
- Bad Penny, from Knitty (with the Debbie Bliss yarn that Dani gave me. Just need about 5 balls in a contrasting color.)
- Baby Sox for Harrison! (Using Dani’s baby sock pattern. Cast on last night, and they are so cute!)
- Tardo’s for people. (I have to make, like, five more. DUDE.)
- Mardi Gras Socks! (I bought some really awesome hand-dyed yarn from Etsy in Mardi Gras colors!)
