For those of you who didn't notice in yesterday's picture (and I know it wasn't easy), my sock didn't fit onto my foot. Apparently, when I decided to count the number of stripes instead of try on my sock, I miscounted (I still don't know how I did this), and started the toe shaping waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy too early.
I ripped and reknit yesterday, and all is better now. Lesson learned? Try on all socks before beginning toe shaping, even if you are matching stripes.
Pattern: Dublin Bay (I would link, but it's a pdf. Google it if you want it) by Mossy Cottage Knits
Yarn: Vesper sock yarn in the Midnight Knitter colorway.
Needles: ChiaGoo DPNs 2.25mm
Dates: late fall to May 20, 2007 on and off
Thoughts: Love the yarn. Love the striping. The pattern is easy enough to remember and to give some interest to an otherwise plain sock, without messing up the striping pattern.

Cute socks! I like the Dublin Bay pattern. Just enough pattern to be interesting but simple enough to show off the yarn.ReplyDelete
They look great!ReplyDelete
They look wonderful. I am almost done with mine but the design doesn't show as well with a dark yarn....Everyone who has seen them loves it though.ReplyDelete
Great socks, great recovery! I love the lace insets -- a good choice for striped yarn.ReplyDelete
