Employing Cara’s highly technical method of photographing one’s own socks, demonstrated here, may I present (finally) my finished Simply Lovely Lace Socks from the Spring 2006 issue of Interweave Knits. I like it, and my ankles don’t look bad (I think the way the colors hits right there is a big plus).
On Saturday night, I wove in the last end and slipped them on my feet to admire. I made Katie — the
only lucky one to be withing admiring proximity — admire them with me. I said, "Do you see how the colors almost exactly match up? Total fluke that it turned out that way. Did you notice the pretty picot edge?" She said, "Mom, you’re such a dork. You ask that every time."
I do? ; )
I used Trekking XXL in color 106, part of a package of contest winnings sent by JessaLu a while back. Started around May 1st, finished August 12th. I believe there are only two or three pattern repeats in the entire pair that are done correctly and I didn’t catch on ’til I was near the end. I believe I made it a three-row repeat rather than four, but it works and I like how they look.
