Burlington back on track

IMG_9638

I did as I said I would and went back to the drawing board with the Burlington sock. I changed my stitches up to some beefier patterns and it’s looking so much better.

I’m using some nice smooth House Cat  in Turquoise for this pair. If it looks a little familiar, it’s because I used it to make a coworker a shawl last year. Before I picked a pattern, I’d dyed up two skeins. So after the shawl was finished, I still had a full skein left. And it’s just perfect for a textured pattern like this.

Ideally,  I’d like to finish the first sock by the end of Sunday. It’s doable.. other than a day spent in the garden at some point, I don’t have any other commitments on my time for the rest of vacation.

And only the leg will have patterning. The foot will be plain, so once I round the heel, I should breeze through it!

    That is a very pretty partial sock! I love the color. Sounds like it is doable to get everything on your list crossed off before vacation ends. Good luck!

  2. I love it. And I love that the foot will be simple stockinette. No need for bumps there! You are going to create a wonderful pattern. I’d like this one for sure. Especially because the foot would be simple
