Over the last two days I’ve been going through my blog from the beginning to tag, categorize, and fix any pictures that are missing from when I moved my blog last year. I’ve been wanting to put up pages of my finished items by year, so I figured I could get all the links needed and correct any entries at the same time. In doing this, I realized I haven’t posted my finished Skew socks!
Pattern: Skew (My Ravelry project page.)
Started: February 27, 2010
Completed: April 18, 2010
Yarn: Creatively Dyed Yarn Steele in Albion
Needles: US 1 (2.25mm), Knit Pick 40″ circular
Notes: This was the first project I ever did using Magic Loop that I didn’t want to immediately rip out. I knit the first sock pretty quickly, but then got sidetracked with some test knitting after I finished the first one. March 3rd the first sock was done and I started the second April 11th (finished on April 18th). The heel is a bit snug to get on, but once they are on, they fit like a glove! I don’t know that I’d change needle size like some people did to make the heel easier to get on, though. I have a wide foot around the ball, but narrow heel, so the fit is actually really good once they are on and not uncomfortable at all. My favorite thing about these socks? The insanely bright colors! 🙂
I don’t know about you, but I’m glad the weekend is just about here. This week feels like it’s been a long one and thankfully this weekend is looking like it won’t be one of those run-around-everywhere type of weekends. Maybe I’ll finally get some things done around the house! Haha, okay, maybe not, but I can hope, right? 😉
