I give you the first completed Sunday Swing sock! It went very fast and was fun to knit. And I’d already got the second sock underway so hopefully I can avoid the dreaded SSS.
As you can see, I didn’t carry the lace down the foot as the pattern calls for. That’s because I found the leg was twisting a bit and I was worried it would cause the foot to twist when wearing. Plus the recipient lives where they get a lot of cold and snow… socks with too many holes just aren’t practical.
The pattern also calls for only three repeats on the leg. Were these socks for me, I probably would have stuck to that (I prefer a shorter sock). Since they are not, I added one extra repeat. I think several other KALers have done the same.
It never ceases to amaze me how different a yarn can look knit up. In the skein, the grey was much more dominant.
But knit up, that Turquoise just takes over with the Yellow coming a close second. Just part of the magic of knitting, I guess!
