My Orange Express Lane socks are finished.
These were knitted along with the September KAL in the solid socks group on Ravelry. Unfortunately I didn't manage to finish them in September, so no prizes for me! However I do have another great pair of socks.
Started: 24th September
Finished: 5th October
Pattern: Express Lane by Diane Mullholland published in The Inside Loop
Yarn: Yarn Yard Bonny, colour 402 (I think, it's orange, very orange)
Comments: A pair of toe up socks, quite unusual for me. I used Anne Budd's toe and heel published in Interweave Knits Summer 2007. No wraps, perfect for me. I also learnt how to do a sewn bind off, which also worked perfectly. No more too tight cast offs for me! I also only worked the front pattern on the sock, I didn't need the calf increases and corresponding pattern.
They really were Express Lane socks. There must be lots of stitch patterns that would work perfectly when centred down the front of the foot like this, I must look at my stitch dictionaries.
Brown is the solid socks colour for next month... I'm off to dig out the brown sock yarn from my stash.
