G'day again all!
OK, I am ready to do battle with the Flickr beast. Can't believe that I didn't grok it before but well that is life!
Here are the socks being coy, from the side:
And from all sorts of angles including closeups! Sorry to those on dial-up....
The cast off will have to be blogged separately cos I knitted the second one at a knitting meetup and forgot to take pictures as I went. Doh! I'll have to re-create it for you. I'm told it is unewesual and diffrent and mebbe even noice!
Toe up version of the Kaibashira sock (Notions, Ravelry). I knitted it to the pattern, four less stitches on the sole and then increased sort of in pattern for the gusset. I did my now standard variant on Cat Bordhi's heel-tecture, which is similar to my variant on the Beaudelaire heel created by Cookie A. I played around with the placement of the pattern around the heel shaping - I really wanted to have just one garter row on either side of it but alas my foot length did not cooperate and I had to split the pattern halfway through the repeat. Still, it worked out just fine, eh?
Yarn: Ellen's Halfpint Farm Wool Bamboo. No colourway listed. Bought at Stitches.
Excuse me whilst I indulge myself. It is my blog, after all.
