Pattern: WendyKnits.net sportweight toe-up sock. Size US 3 DPNs (KnitPicks Options)
Yarn: Creatively Dyed (shared here on the blog)
Cast-on as a Cast-One Sunday Project. Completed in 7 days.
The first life:
The heel needed healing.
The second life:
I shortened the foot by 1 inch and the heel hits wrong. *ugh*
I added 5 short rows in the heel flap to lengthen it so knitSB would like it better.
The cast-off was too
The third life:
I pulled it out and will knit top down socks for him. I know how to knit top down socks and know the heel fits him. I expect there are better toe-up socks patterns to allow adjustments (evil, no less) but I wanted to knit a second pair using this nice pattern.
The lesson learned:
Not every foot likes the same toe-up sock pattern.
I loved following this pattern from my iPhone. I didn't use paper to print the pattern. How green of me.
I like WendyKnits (free) patterns. They are easy to follow and this one worked for my foot well. I think her Faro Easy Shawl is next after I finish two projects. Visit back for details.
