Summer of Socks (08) #1

July 2, 2008

Started 6/21, finished 7/2
Pattern: Nutkin by Beth Lapensee
Yarn: Castagna colorway of Colinette Jitterbug
Needles: KP Harmony dpns, 2.5mm (1.5 US)
Cuff: 2.25 inches

New Skills: Short row heel/toe, 3-needle bind off, hemmed cuff.

Notes: These will end up being a gift since they just fit my foot weird. Also, were I to knit these again, I’d totally do heel flap and a “normal” toe, even if it meant losing the 3-needle bind off embellishment, I’d go up to a size 2 needle, and I’d keep the purls together to avoid where my purls aren’t tight enough and look silly. And here I thought I was “beyond” ladders. Hmpf.
