You won't believe the positions I've been in trying to get a good photo of my sock! (I didn't realise I could raise my leg that high! *LOL*) And this was the best I could manage.
This is sock #1, finished about an hour ago. I did toe up because I wasn't sure how much yarn I'd have left over. I managed to get 5 full 24-row patterns and 8 rows of garter stitch at the top and had a teeny bit of yarn left, so it worked out perfectly.
I decided to do garter stitch to finish because I had mostly purl stitches on the last row or two. When I did a 2x2 rib, it just looked like there was a straight line cutting off the rib from the leg. I think the garter stitch flows better from the purl stitches. What do you think?
I love the Fyberspates 100% Bluefaced sock yarn. This is the first time I've used it and it's gorgeous. It's very soft, feels lovely in your hands when knitting and has a subtle sheen that shows up well with the pattern.
One of the community paediatricians where I work was eyeing it up in work today - unfortunately for her, she's a small size 4 and luckily for me, this is a perfect fit-me size 6. :0) She said they were just her colours too ..... Oh well, maybe I'll make her a pair next ..... ;0)
