try, try again.
So I did, and cast on a couple new projects.
First up are the Loki socks in Bitsy Knits Sock82me. The stitch definition is great but the 8 ply yarn is a little splitty. Not the best combo for twisted stitches but I love the colors.
The yarn has just enough pinks in it and the oranges are a nice departure for me. And now that I’ve started the main leg pattern, the intricate stitching is a welcome change. My recent socks have all been vanilla varieties and I think it’s not been enough to keep my attention.
The tidy picots add just that little bit of feminity without being too much. Plus they make it easy to track where I’m at in the repeat. I love patterns that are self documenting and don’t require umpteen stitch markers to keep track. I’m close to being done with the first section and can’t wait to add in the short rows of the next section.
