I finished Pair #3 of 2012, yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
These are Cotty socks designed by Irishgirlieknits in STR Mediumweight, colorway Scottish Highlands. This is one of the first skeins of STR I bought for myself (two years ago in April 2010!) and I'm so pleased with how it knit up. I really enjoyed this pattern. It's simple and pretty, with nice easy lace and a lovely picot hem. I highly recommend it!
where the spirals changed to stripes. They fit well, but next time I'd probably just knit them in STR LW or Bugga since I like the original cast on number just fine in those yarns and I wouldn't need to change the stitch count. The photos are a little washed out because they were taken in pre-dawn light because that's
how dedicated I am to photo-documenting my knitting! (Haha, sad,
right?) But really, who wouldn't be posing near the window before work at 6:30am (bent double
trying to catch the meager light at just the right angle) with socks as snazzy
as these? :)
* I named this project Scotty, because Scottish Highlands + Cotty Socks = Scotty. Superclever!!!
