Inspired by Hege's socks I knitted my usual sock pattern over 64 stitches and did the middle twenty stitches in garter stitch (alternating knit and purl rows). Very simple and straight forward to knit but looks nice too :-)
I did a gusset heel because I like the fit and finish of it :-) The toe was Judy's magic cast on and despite the first picture it does fit properly, it's just that he has bigger feet than me so the sock blockers aren't long enough!
I'm already making my way through my next pair of socks using the beautiful yarn I got for my birthday. It's addictive knitting, just one more stripe...
However I'm going to have to be strong and work on something else instead. I'm going to be joining in with the Rays of Gold MKAL by Elena Nodel so I need to get a move on and do some swatching. I'm hoping I can use this gorgeous yarn from Wildflower Whimsy but it's a worsted so it might be a bit thick. If not I'll have to go back to my stash and see what I can find
I'm having lots of fun with crafting at the moment :-) Is anyone else joining in with Elena's mystery KAL? Are you super organised with yarn and swatches done or are you leaving it to the last minute like me?
