You can never have too many pairs of red socks, right?
I needed a nice easy portable project a while back (um, in February...) and what better choice is there than stocking stitch socks with a pretty yarn? (let's not mention that I actually wound this yarn in May last year to take to hospital with me. Yeah, it never left the project bag!)
Pattern: Just my basic cuff down plain vanilla socks! Although I did add some calf shaping into these. I think I started with 72 stitches and steadily decreased down to 64, as I moved down the leg. I did a tubular cast-on and twisted rib, and my favourite eye of partridge heel flap, and wedge toe.
GeekKnitter. I like this yarn, it feels nice but still sturdy, and I like how the colours behaved, with a subtle blue and purple stripe effect. I would use this yarn again for sure.
Sticks: 2.5mm KnitPicks fixed circular, for magic looping - my favourite method for plain socks.
Time: 2 February 2011 - 1 August 2011.
