New Socks!

And they're done.


Project Details

Pattern: My same old vanilla sock
Yarn: Lang Jawoll Superwash Solids, Black Watch. I think the real color “name” is actually a number.
Needles: 2.25mm sterling double points
For: John
Started/Finished: Started 1/23/17 Finished 5/28/17.
Modifications: None
What I Learned: I keep tinkering with my sock formula to fit John's feet better. He has very high arches and a genetic foot thing called Charcot Marie Tooth syndrome. With these, I did the gusset decreases at a slower rate to provide a little more width around his ankle. These are a bit snug but are better than just the standard gusset shape.

Yes, he has weird feet.

Now I get to pick my next sock yarn!

  1. Woohoo! Finished socks! Finished anything!

    I’ve been in a bit if a slump with the crafting. I recently went to Greece to visit ill relatives and the time away from the Rav forums and the knit lists and the Facebook and the Instagram…well, it reset me a little. I needed it to help me prioritize my life. I was being very social online, and consequently not social in real life, nor was I getting things done in general.

    Oh, sorry for the high jack! Yay for your completed socks!!! I know your John will enjoy them!
