After getting some sock knitting supplies for Christmas, I’ve been working on making these socks. This is the bright tweed pattern by Edie Eckman.
This picture was taken during Christmas break.
After making the cuff and heel, I got stuck at the instep and set the whole thing down for over a month. Until now! I’ve been working on this baby off and on for a few weeks, and have finally finished it. There are only a few problems with it.
The biggest issue is that I didn’t mark the beginning of the row, and managed to knit this weird little corner on the top of the sock. I think the whole body is rotated, but the rest of the heel looks pretty normal. Other than the two holes, that is.
There are also these holes and a dropped stitch, which I stitched down so it wouldn’t cause a run.
Overall, this sock turned out better than I hoped, and it actually fits! So if I need a holey, single mate sock one morning, I’ll always have one I guess. hahaha.
