Just slightly over a week after I cast on, and they’re done.
ETA: i forgot the best part! 2 balls of fest yarn are gone!!
Pattern: Cassie’s Loksins socks
Yarn: Regia Bamboo Color in Red Spot Color
Needles: KnitPicks 2.5mm / US #1 (3.25mm / US #3 to cast on)
- Short row heel instead of flap
- I knit 9 repeats for the leg, 7 repeats for the foot, and 2 plain rounds between the lace and starting the toe decreases. I wear a women’s US shoe size 7.5 or 8.
- Next time I’d make the legs longer, but I’ll need a few extra leg sts to do that.
- Thoughts on the yarn: The wool content works really well with the bamboo. These socks have a great, soft hand, but the wool gives them resiliency. The ballband says it can be machine washed and dried, but I think I’m going to knit up a swatch first. I don’t know what to expect the bamboo to do.
That’s really all there is to say. It’s a great pattern — absolutely addicting to knit, and beautiful to wear. I can’t recommend it enough.
