I flashed a sneak preview of the Pom progress yesterday (did you see??). I’ve been working away on the Poms and things got a whole lot quicker when I weighed the yarn after finishing the second repeat on the leg.
(Yippee!!) I do think 2 repeats is probably enough. I like my socks a little longer (not a fan of knitted ankle socks for myself) so if I’d had enough yarn I probably would have done all the repeats, but I’m happy with this length (I wouldn’t go any shorter!)I was really happy with my picking up of stitches for the gussets – such a neat chain edge on the inside (if I do say so myself!)And the heel flap and gussets look so good from the outside too.I’ve got about half a repeat to go on the foot and then it’s the toe! Squeeeeeeeee! Now I just have to decide whether I will do the second sock in the Pom pattern…or if I’ll do a complementary sock (am thinking Child’s First Sock in Shell Pattern by Nancy Bush…what do you think – should I do a matching Pom pair, or a matching but not matching pair with one Pom and one Shell?)
