elfine's socks ... finally!
my first ever sock is lonely no more:
pattern: elfine's socks by anna bell
yarn: fleece artist merino sock in "moss"
needle: addi turbo lace us1 for magic loop
time to knit: a ridiculous 6 months
thoughts: hooray! i love them.
sock #1 was my first ever sock. although i thoroughly enjoyed knitting it, a whole new world had opened up to me, and i found myself casting on for several other socks instead. socktoberfest was what finally inspired me to finish them up. after all, i was already half-way there.
this is a great pattern and a really good introduction to knitting toe-up with short-row heels. had i weighed my yarn into 2 equal balls ahead of time i would have known that i had enough yarn left to add an extra repeat to each leg. oh well, lesson learned. in the end i did 4 repeats on the foot and 4 on the leg.
now, back to my bubble pullover...
