Yippee! Finally finished the first Traveler’s Stocking.
Oh my. I only had a few rows to go last night, and the sewing in of the ends, but I had to have a break from knitting afterwards! Have less than a month until deadline so have to get on to sock #2.
I decided to go with the eye of partridge heel, which I’m really happy about. The sock, which I haven’t blocked yet, is just a wee bit tight (on my foot/leg) and I think the standard slip stitch heel would have pulled it in a bit more.
I am very proud of this sock though – it’s been a challenge but I think it looks great. There’s a bit of pooling on the leg and striping on the foot, but I think the colours are soft enought that it works quite well with this pattern.
Lucky I bought a second skein of this yarn – just in case – because I think I’m going to need it! Only 40g left of a 100g skein…thank goodness for foresight!
Don’t forget – leave a comment on this post to go into the draw!
