In Which the Pirate Finishes Socks.
The (Perhaps Not-So) Quick Toe Up Socks are complete! After carrying them around with me for a week, three ends unwoven, I sat down today and finished them off. Usually I don’t block socks at all, but these are a little tight and so I’m considering it. Or I could just wear them until they stretch to my feet. I admit that I’m disappointed with the fit, and of course this is the sort of sock yarn that wears like iron, so I’ll have them in rotation for a long time to come.
To sum up: Wendy’s Generic Toe-Up Sock pattern, substituting a figure-eight toe. 64 stitches, short-row heel, a bit of 2×2 ribbing at the top. Lane Cervinia “Forever” in colorway 61, US size 1 needles… and lots of fiddling around to make the pair match!
