These socks are a modified version of Prism. Knit in two colours of The Yarn Yard Clan, these are only my second pair of Clan socks (despite being in the sock club for a year).
These were started the day my waters broke - Sunday 4th July 2010 - hence the name.
I knit some of the first leg whilst waiting at home for things to begin on the Monday (nothing happened). I knit the rest of the second leg whilst hooked up to drips and monitors in hospital on the Tuesday (still nothing happening). I had Thomas on the Wednesday afternoon. I spent a week in hospital wondering if I would ever have time to pick up my needles again.
However they are now finished. The perfect simple knit when you have no brain capacity for anything else. I changed the pattern to have 4 stitches between the slipped stitches. I altered the rib to be a twisted rib which flowed into the slipped stitches.
Love them! Especially the colours. Clan is a little splitty to knit with, but the twisted and slipped stitches show up beautifully. I wore them out in my walking boots yesterday (perhaps a little foolish as I have managed to rub the toes a little) but they were really really comfy socks.
