A picture's worth....

Posted by Neuroknitter

...a thousand words...here're some pics (some might be only worth a couple of words...oh well!)

Finished Hippy Crunchy socks in Peaseblossom.

Mods: Picot edge (so out of character for me, no?) and decreased 6 stitches on the sole side following the short row heel to achieve a snugger fit.



SweetGeorgia speed demon yarn in Boheme,

Garden Party,



and River.

A few extra words for inquiring minds: all the speed demon socks are my own patterns, toe up with a figure 8 cast on and a short row heel. rib patterns selected from Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch. I've been fine tuning the fit, but am fairly pleased with size 4 Addi turbos, between 46-52 stitches around the foot, and 48-50 stitches around the leg.


Did I mention, I heart SweetGeorgia!



Dear sweet Gibson playing in 'sock hop' roving in Great Balls of Fire from Crown Mountain Farms!

A spider in our garden (thanks Pete!).
