Sock it to me
Although the Trekking socks have yet to undertake a maiden voyage into the wilderness, the first one is nearing completion.
I'm using colorway #135 and a chevron pattern from Sensational Socks, I think. I'll check those details when I'm not too tired to get up from the desk. The pattern is easy to memorize and I got to try out a new heel.
It's a before-thought heel, or something to that effect. Despite the gaping hole there that will need a little sewing action, me likey. The look of a short-row (sorta) but without the fuss of purling... a winner with me!
Random note: Yarn Kitty, it's a good thing you're (a) anonymous (for now) and (b) far away because you could get this knitter into trouble. Are you thinking of doing the pink and brown cardigan in Big Girl Knits? That was one of the reasons I recently bought the book. I may just be going to investigate Calmer colors. I see blue and brown for fall... Have you found the knitalong group on Yahoo? Guess you can't tell me if you're a regular poster there, but so far I'm just a lurker. Must finish up some of the projects in the queue before jumping in there. But great book that will give me many future projects!
