I finished off another pair of socks from the Holiday Gift List.
pattern: Ã‚Â based onÃ‚Â Gentlemen’s PlainÃ‚Â Winter Sock with Dutch HeelÃ‚Â from Knitting Vintage Socks, by Nancy Bush
yarn: Ã‚Â Knit Picks Essential Solid – Dusk
needles: Ã‚Â Clover Bamboo US3
cast on: Ã‚Â October 21stÃ‚Â cast off:Ã‚Â October 26thÃ‚Â
notes:Ã‚Â These socks are based on the socks from Knitting Vintage Socks because I misread the pattern when I was ordering yarn for the project.Ã‚Â I read the first line of the pattern which says “with yarn doubled, cast on …”Ã‚Â Oh, hey, I thought to myself, these will knit up in a jiff with the yarn doubled.Ã‚Â I ordered the yarn and when it arrived I sat down to start knitting.Ã‚Â “Cut off extra strand of yarn.”Ã‚Â WTF!Ã‚Â The socks are knit with the yarn doubled for the cast on but one strand for the rest of the sock.Ã‚Â But, I have all this sock yarn!Ã‚Â So I went ahead and knit the socks with the yarn doubled and just fiddled with the numbers to make it work.
