Another pair of socks from my enormous sock yarn stash
Summer Chevron Socks:
Started: May 18th
Finished: June 11th
Pattern: My own, using a stitch pattern from 200 Ripple Stitches by Jan Eaton. This is the chevron pattern -
Row 1: k1, yo, k3, sl1 k2tog psso, k3, yo* repeat.
Row 2: Knit.
I cast on 60 stitches and did 5 rows of garter stitch.
The heel is a normal heelflap.
Yarn: Online Supersocke 100 in Holiday which I bought in Toronto last September.
Comments: A quick knit, I think the second sock only took about 3 days in total. The pattern is really easy and it works really well with the self-striping yarn. They are lovely and colourful and summery, which is exactly what I wanted!
And now for something completely different.... I have chosen my next lace project...
This is Muir from Knitty in pink Eva 2ply Posh Yarn. I'm just over 1 repeat in and wondering if I can finish it before a wedding on the 20th July. Here is a close up of the pattern.
