Wow! I knit a pair of sox ! ! !


These were knit with yarn I've had in my Stash for ages.
It's Malabrigo Fingering Weight in the Azules colorway.
This pattern:  Business Casual designed by
TanisFiberArts
works beautifully with this tonal blue.
The pattern is mesmerizing,
my gaze follows the crisscrossing lines of this design.
I modified the pattern by beginning the toe decrease way before my usual 2.25" before end of foot.
This pair is finished off with a standing ribbed pattern, just for the fun of it.

The question for the day is
whether or not we'll get snow before sundown.

hugs

and, thanks, we did have a great lunch yesterday.  Ate at Lutz's BBQ, had their white meat only Chicken Sandwich
and, don't forget the bbq sauce.
yum

    1. Just how many times did Gerry rip back and re- knit?
      Well, just as many as it took to get it right enough
      For me to photograph them and show 'em.

      It is truly a great knit,
      Once I found my grove.

    1. It's a neat way to show off tonals
      This twisted stitch will co again, for certain.

      Still getting used to using the iPad for photos. ;-)

    1. It'll be a looong time til they are worn at the same time
      Must be frogged then re-created into a fitting garment.

  6. I love your socks -- always! I have these socks in my queue to adapt from cuff-down to toe-up. My foot is so funky that getting cuff-down to fit right is next to impossible. I have some Berroco Sox in tonal grey set aside for these.
