Size: not sure, but I wear about a woman’s 9
Yarn: Regia Winter Color, about 80% of 1 100g ball
Needles: 2.5mm needle
Dates: January 4 2008 – March 3 2009
Modifications: None, but I plan on some. I’ve noticed that since the increases are done on either side of a marker, which puts a lot of strain there. I put them on to wear to the Passover seder on Thursday and found that both the toe and heel had too much strain at that space to wear without being afraid of a tear. You can see what I mean in the photo below if you look at my left toe- you can see “ladders” of the gap where the marker had been. I will need to reinforce the socks before I can wear them, and when (not if) I knit these again I would modify it slightly to leave 1 stitch on either side of the marker, THEN work the incs.
As usual you can find my finished (and unfinished!) projects in my “projects” page by clicking the tab up at the top of every page on my blog, and I also have this project in my Ravelry notebook here.
p.s. thanks for taking these photos Maaike!
