I have never finished a pair of socks in less than 2 weeks. I think you can see why I was a bit nervous, though, I knew I could at least finish 1 sock. But, I don't just want the patterns, I want to actually compete. My goal has been to NOT get eliminated in the first round.
Of course the preliminary socks pattern were released while I was in California. I didn't have sock yarn, though I did bring an extra circular sock needle, just in case. I bought some Crazy Zauberball in a pretty blue-green colorway
cast on, the pattern is Sockdolager by Adrienne Fong,
Since I was knitting monogamously on this project,
They really fit. They have a Twisted German Cast on, and a Fleegle Heel. Both were new to me. The heel was very easy, and saves you from picking up stitches on the heel flap.
I like the colors of the yarn, and how the blues pooled. The pattern was very easy to memorize.
Wow, it is good to be home.
Stitch night tomorrow.
shaping the world with new socks!
