I realized tonight that I have been doing a bit of knitting lately, but have forgotten to take any photos of it.
About a week ago, only a few days after we got home from our trip, I finished the first Sidewinder sock. I couldn’t wait to do the long grafting and the toe graft and see if the sock actually fit (no sense making a second one if the first didn’t fit!)
These socks are so cool!!!! You knit them lengthwise, so instead of horizontal stripes running around your foot and leg, you have long vertical stripes. It really changes up the look of the self-striping yarn, and maybe it’s just the new sock love talking, but I swear these socks fit better than my other ones.
The pattern is free, and it’s from here. I’m knitting it exactly as written for my size, but once I have the other one done and I try them on with shoes, I’m thinking I might want to add a few stitches in the foot length on my next pair. And there WILL be a next pair.
