A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

October 20, 2007


Pattern: Pomatomus by Cookie A.
Yarn: Socks That Rock, Lightweight, in Ms. LaRock colorway
Needles: US2 Addi Turbos
Notes: I tried to knit the socks as written with three leg pattern repeats but ran out of yarn for the second sock. I cut off the top of the first sock and knit the ribbing back up in the opposite direction. It's not too noticeable but the stitches do twist the wrong way back up the sock. I used that extra yarn to try to finish the second sock. It wasn't enough so I ripped out the first toe and knit it shorter (it was a little too long anyway) at the same time I knit the second sock. I then ran out of yarn at the same spot on both socks and finished the last smidgen with some Socks That Rock in the Mist colorway.
If I had to make these again I would a) knit them on US1s and b) only knit the leg repeat twice.
