Slip Sliding Away
For my October SKA (Sock Knitters Anonymous) socks and the first part of my HPKCHC Order of the Phoenix Mission (or B.R.O.O.M.), I am knitting a mirrored pair of socks with a slip stitch mosaic pattern.
I am using the green and orange yarn that I dyed this summer with the Eastside Stitchers. This yarn started out as a bare sock blank from Knit Pick.
These socks call for a "Peasant Heel." This has me knit in some waste yarn on one side of the socks. The waste yarn will be taken out when the socks are finished, the stitches picked up, and the heels knit. I am past that part now and am knitting down the feet. The soles are striped and the mosaic pattern continues on the instep. I am really loving knitting these.
