These were a fun little pair of socks! I basically used the Fine and Dandy socks more for the toe-up heel flap and gusset pattern, but figured I might as well use the stitch pattern as well. I really like the toe up heel flap and gusset – I should use it more! I edited the pattern a bit to fit to my usual 68 inch sock, and I think it turned out really well! They look a bit big on my blockers, but that’s actually good for me. I’m definitely going to use that template again.
I did this pattern to use up my December club set, and I got 10 g of the CC, which is not enough to make toes as heels for my size. As you can see, I was able to find some coordinating grey from my stash. I was too lazy to cut and reattach the MC to finish the heel with that. I definitely have a good amount of the MC leftover, I was considering doing a bit longer cuff, but the stitch pattern requires you to shift stitches, and that’s a pain with two at a time, so I just did the rolled cuff. I think next month I may do some colorwork with the CC so I can use less of it and more of the MC.
If you look at the blog from the actual site and not WordPress reader, you’ll noticed I changed the theme. I’m still tinkering a bit, there’s some stuff I like and some I don’t, so we’ll see. If you have feedback let me know!
