Sock Status Sunday: DONE!

Putting my Chambourcin on hold to block and try on the body meant I had a lot of free time on Wednesday evening. Free time plus a disc of Criminal Minds season 6 meant a second finished sock for a complete pair of Nutkins.

As I mentioned last Sunday, I opted to mirror the pattern on the second sock, and I’m really happy with that decision.

Another easy pattern to knit, I didn’t realize that the patterning would make the socks twist like crazy. They’re relatively straight in the photographs, but that’s because I had to fight with them every time I shifted positions. I only mention this so that if you plan on knitting this pattern and then wearing them with a skirt or short/pegged pants, this might be something that drives you crazy.

I love the yarn; this is the first time I’ve knit with any Madelinetosh yarn, I think, and I’m glad that I have some more in my stash. I’m sad that the color (Skinnamarink) was a limited edition, as I would totally buy more. The way the colors shift and play together in the pattern is so pretty.

After I finished these, I started working on two different baby projects, so hopefully there will be some more FOs to share soon. And now I’m off to rip back a sweater front. Wish me luck!

  1. you mean they keep moving when you wear them? That’d be annoying *frowns*. I was considering these as my next attempt at socks, but if that’s the case, then I’m not so sure… that would drive me bonkers.

    1. The leg just sort of twist around. It’s not that big a deal, I didn’t feel it as it was happening, but I’d look down and the purl column was not going straight down the leg onto the foot.
