Then I looked right and the SO had the other one on!
The mistake was to take my eyes off them when he was around. he is a real sock fiend and would indeed wear them, with pride.
So there they are. His feet are longer and thinner than mine.
I soon rescued it and tucked them away ready to be washed.
Here they are, I love them.
A bit of a close up to show you the Dittany stitch pattern.
Of course I cast on another right away, I just made up a little yarn over knit 2 together eyelet pattern. A 4 row repeat, totally mindless knitting. I am now on the gusset increases and as the yarn is super soft I am using the eye of partridge heel stitch. I will carry that on up the heel for extra strength.
I will be wearing the pink ones while I watch Strictly and knit another pair, I better get busy finding the right yarn..
Problem solved, I just too a minute to pop over to Rosie's Moments and picked up 2 skeins. Yes, I did say 2 but I do knit fast and they were on sale, they will also be gifts.
That's it I have no more reasons to give. I will share when they arrive and you will see why.
This is now the next day and my yarn has been posted, such service is amazing.
I do have 38 grams of the pink yarn left, I will be on the lookout for a contrast to use for toes, heels and cuffs and another pair will be born.
My name is Pam and I am a full on sock knitting addict.
I hope that I never recover, there is always a pair of feet somewhere that deserve a pair of hand knitted socks.
More garden work happened yesterday, that is why this has run over. By the time that we had cleared up and showered all I wanted to do was eat, walk the dogs and knit for a while. We were in bed by 9 and asleep in seconds.
Now it is lunch time, and a good thing to as we both have the rumblies in the tumblies.
All that lifting and walking burns up the energy reserves P D Q.
