A pair of socks that are slightly slutty? Blame it on the sale-bin yarn. Cookie A.’s design for Angee is pretty tame but in hot pink Jitterbug? Then it’s the Lady Saw of socks:
That alizarine 119 colourway is bright. Better than light therapy for SAD! Take 50%-off and everything looks cool in the LYS, right?
Remember how I added 4″ to the cuff, and shaped it out down the leg? Next time I’ll only add 3″ in. The top is slightly slouchy & the arches are on the baggy side if I’m being honest. I think that a short-row heel may give a better balance for my school m’arm calf → heel issues. This is my 2-pronged strategy for attaining the elusive fit:
- Work through my new books Socks from the Toe Up by Wendy Johnson & New Pathways for Insouciant Sock Knitters by Cat Bordhi; and
- Dust-off yonder treadmill.
As you can see, the toes don’t match.
That would be because my (diligent) notes that covered foot & toe shaping were lost on Air Jamaica flight JM078 in December.
There you have it – 1st Cookie A. pattern & 1st FO of 2010!
On Friday I found out that another baby gift needs to be queued. My girlfriend is pregnant & due early May. She doesn’t know the baby’s sex, so my first thought is a blanket… not sure what type yet but am working on it.
