Have you ever done a mystery knit along? I found out that I really look at the pictures in the patterns a lot. Just to see if my project matches. In a mystery KAL, you just never know and it's a bit worrisome. These socks were for the Outlander group on Ravelry and they were really a lot of fun. We started with the toe at the end of June.
Next came the foot with a pattern and some little cables.
Next we turned the heel. And finally some posted pictures so I could see that mine were just like the others.
Then onto the cuff with some more cables. I really liked how the gusset stitches led right into the cables.
I was knitting on the beach last weekend with my many pages of pattern covered with all my scribbles.
Finally, some beads in the shape of a heart. Then the cuff and binding off. I did eliminate a garter stitch part because they were long enough as it was.
The yarn is Malabrigo sock yarn in Lettuce, so soft and nice. And the beads just matched perfectly. My first time knitting with beads, much easier than I had expected.
My only problem was that these tied up all my size one DPN's for a very long time so I had to go out and buy another set. Which meant a trip to the LYS where there is just too much temptation.
